Submitted by Jason Eritano (United Kingdom), Dec 10, 2003 at 12:51

What Daniel Pipes has written is all true. Just a simple question for him: Have you ever been to Britain? I am not British but I have lived in Britain for 6 years and I know what a PC nation that is. The image of Britain that you get in the USA is far from reality. Take note of what I tell you, if you don't already know it.

1) Britain is the most PC nation of earth
2) Despite Tony Blair and a pro-American foreign policy, British people are anti-American
3) The Guardian newspaper is rabidly anti-Semitic and one of its journalists, Mr. Imran, "refuses to read letters from Jewish readers"
4) The Independent cartoonist, Mr. Brown, is anti-Semitic. He has been named UK cartoonist of the year after an anti-Semitic cartoon about Ariel Sharon eating Palestinian children
5) I know you have written on the Daily Telegraph , but that is not representative of the mainly far-left British press
6) You could never write an article such as Murdering for Militant Islam , in Britain. You would be arrested.
7) If the Middle East forum was based in London, as opposed to Philadelphia, human rights campaigners would burn your offices down
8) The Socialist Workers Party and Anti-Nazi League would beat up and threaten members of the Middle East forum
9) The mere use of the word "militant Islam" would lead you straight to court and, from there, to jail
10) A high court judge has recently taken the side of Guantanamo detainees
11) The Labour MP Oona King ,herself Jewish, is anti-Semitic
12) If you dare criticizing Islamic Fundamentalists, you get beaten up, or worse.
13) The legislation on Race Relations means that your books wouldn't even be published in Britain.
14) The legislation on Race Relations also means that you would be either fined or arrested for your views
15) You could be sacked from your job for your views
16) The mere title of your article would lead to prosecution and either a fine or arrest
17) Those who criticize Islamic Fundamentalism are dismissed as "Islamophobes" who hate all Muslims.
18) The words "fascist" and "racist" are used liberally against those who disagree with PC
19) Ifyou point out that thousands of terrorists are based in London, you get beaten up by left-wingers.
20) The word "far-right" is used liberally to direct the left-wing mob against those who disagree with PC. PLEASE PUBLISH THIS.
