islamism in our midst

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

Submitted by robert fusfeld (United States), Mar 27, 2004 at 20:49

Dr. Pipes: I think there exist many elements within our federal government who are simply empathetic to the islamist credo. Then, there are those who are using the islamofacist threat to advance their own political agenda. Finally, we have lost. Pure and simple, lost. The rationalizations emanating from the 911 hearings are nothing but the blatherings of two adminstrations intent on making war on pot smokers, wasting valuable resources on abortion, and charter schools. This is the tragedy. We are focused upon the wrong thing. It has been this way since we surrendered our morality and values by making peace with Nazis. The day we awarded Werner Von Braun, Artur Rudolph, et.al, our most cherished honors, America as an ideal died.

You may argue this case. This is not a conspiracy. It is the lack of Honor.

Please keep up the good fight. We need it.
