Turning away from the DARK SIDE of Islam

Reader comment on item: How Central Is Muslim Anti-Semitism?

We need a much more organized, consistent, thorough, and comprehensive effort to publicize what is being said in the Middle East. These comments need to be collected in a weekly or monthly digest, sort of like a 'Media Research Center' of international bias against America and Israel.

We must hold these government-run news organizations accountable, by publicizing and circulating these outrageous, slanderous comments and propaganda efforts.

This is the heart of the disagreement between Daniel Pipes and the pro-Muslim commentator: Daniel Pipes wants to hold Islam accountable so that it can come to terms with its ugly side, and turn away from the DARK SIDE of Islamic culture. Muslim apologists repeatedly attack any efforts to tell the truth as part of an 'agenda' to cast all Muslims as being Osama Bin Laden. The best way to discourage the dark elements of the Islamic world is to shine sunlight into the Dark Side and discourage people from following it down into the depths of darkness.
