Interesting statement from Dr. Pipes

Reader comment on item: "Iraqis Evict Palestinian Refugees"

Submitted by Debanjan Banerjee (India), Jul 12, 2009 at 04:36

Dr. Pipes,

I remember that some days back you supported the Mujahidin-e-khlaq(MEK), a group also an avid supporter of Saddam Hussain. This group , designated as "terrorist" by the state department ,actively took part in the Iran - Iraq war , in favour of Saddam. This same MEK group was responsible for attacks against American interests in Iran in the early 1970s.

So why are you showing suspicion against the Palestinian refugees in Iraq , some of whom might have supported Saddam in the past ? Kindly answer.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Whatever its past, the MeK has proven itself a useful ally versus Tehran. The Iraqi Palestinians have not proven themselves useful in any way.
