Dr. Pipes is not anti Muslim

Reader comment on item: The Problem with Middle East Studies

Submitted by Singha (India), Jul 14, 2008 at 12:37

Dr. Pipes believes there is something called moderate islam, a point on which I have had a major disagreement with him.

Middle East Studies are a farce because they begin with the assumption of islam being great and sublime. Islam's political pretensions overlooked and the notion of looking at academics with a pre conceived notion ends up making a joke of middle east studies.

Dr. Pipes. Keep up your great work. And please do stop the politically correct approach of referring to political islam as islamism.
