Reader comment on item: Recruiting Soldiers Against Radical Islam

Excellent article. I am a bit disturbed of the labeling of CAIR and the other group. This is a bit of a stretch. Islam sir is broken up by seventy two different sects. Are you labeling the entire group as one? Clearly every faith has their distinctions. Unfortunately the good of the world pay for the evil. No part of society is spared. Additionally the radicalization of any faith is and shouldn't be allowed! Everyone has the right to choose their own spirituality.

Are we all as devout? NO! Our world has gone through many changes. I suggest that your article be more thought provoking. You are only presenting a segmented work of your research. Mr. Pipes the main author should oversee this.

I accept everyone as one. Sure this is considered a myth by many? Honestly if we remove race, gender, and religion. All of us are at the core human! Truly for world peace to exist. We all need to stand together. The mass media is the biggest profiteering evil. How else are we so bombarded on how to lead our lives?

Mr. Pipes yes I do respect your work.

Daniel Pipes replies:

I agrre that Muslims are not monolithic. But I argue that Islamists have more in common with each other than with other Muslims and consitute a useful unit for analysis.
