Mr. Pipes,

I read your communiques regularly and listen to you taut the Israeli position while knocking the Islamic position.

Then you turn around and say that the US should seek military alliances with Turkey.
The very Moslems who shamelessly, who brutally, who without a second thought, who to this day continue to deny and disinformate the Genocide that they committed on the Armenian Nation.

How can you continue to write about the evils of Islam and then advocate military alliances with Turkey.

After reading your takes on Islam, one would think that you would not only make your case for Israel but reinforce it by advocating the Islamic Turks acceptance of guilt and long overdue reparations to the Armenians for there governmental Ethnic Cleansing which culminated in the 1895 massacres and the 1915 Genocide.

The Armenians know full well the outcome of Islamic expansionism.

You should reconsider your recommendation about US military alliances with Turkey. While the US should abandon it's immoral indifference to Turkey's treatment of its minorities and neighboring countries and immediately demand that it admit the injustices it has and continues to implement.

Instead of creating military alliances what should be done is the halt of US/World Bank bailouts of the Turkish economy. Without which the country would collapse.
