Dealing with Misrepresentations

Reader comment on item: The Problem with Middle East Studies

Submitted by Ralph C Whaley MD (United States), Jul 14, 2008 at 09:06

One is the victim of injustice when misrepresented as Dr. Pipes has been. Whether deliberate or by honest error is important. Those who are honestly mistaken will welcome your corrections. The others are not worthy of a second of your thoughts and will never acknowledge their culpability.

Thomas Jefferson lived these principles in dealing with the false accusations of his relationship with Sally Hemmings. He never dignified them with denials or explanations.
