Sick, sick, SICK!

Reader comment on item: In Mideast, Bet on a Strong Horse

Submitted by Godfrey deBouillon (United States), Feb 16, 2010 at 09:52

To say that Arab/Muslim society is sick, sick, SICK would not begin to tell the truth of it!! When faced with such a serious and infectious pestilence, cold is probably the only way to take our reality. None of us (except our native sickos) want to be cruel, but I believe some cruelty to be necessary in order to protect ourselves, let the evil ones know who and what rules here and to serve as salutary examples. Still, we also want to preserve the things about our society which make so many others want to be a part of it.

I am saddened and angered by the abetting of honor-killing in the St. Louis community. Will we need to ghettoize, or relocate, that community? How do we get them to see the light, Dr. Pipes? This question isn't rhetorical; I would very much appreciate your input.

Daniel Pipes replies:

I counsel a two-fold approach. (1) Win. (2) Attempt to get our more advanced ideas across. The latter may seem impossible today, but a century ago it likewise appeared to be inevitable.
