Reader comment on item: The U.S. Institute of Peace Stumbles

Submitted by Tom Pensyl (United States), Mar 23, 2004 at 10:05

Dear Dr. Pipes,

You can harp on this particular group til you're blue in the face. You might even be able to discredit them. But they... will just go off and start a different organization and they'll be back up to their same...antics before you can say "if you ain't Muslim, you ain't shiite."

What we need is leaders who will have the vision to recognize that Islamism is by nature at war with everybody else and who will have the courage to declare this, and throw everything we have at it...
