Rashad Hussain's appointment is fundamentally problematic

Reader comment on item: Should We Believe Rashad Hussain?

Submitted by Kurt Basking (United States), Feb 18, 2010 at 01:03

Dear Dr. Pipes: Just as much as there is no legitimate solution to the islamic fundamentalism that uses violence as a tool, there is no legitimate solution that uses appeasement as a method. The only way this problem will be solved is via relentless verbal attacks on the principles followed by the fundamentalists.

Islamists around the world are acting like ultimate cry babies -- they want perfect behavior from everyone else while their own behavior is not subject to even the lowest standards. Our world just does not need the Organization of Islamic Countries. Do we have any organizations for Jewish, Buddist, Christians, and Hindu countries? Then why should our planet tolerate the OIC as a legitimate entity? And, why should the united states appoint a representative to OIC? It does not matter whether Rashad Hussain is an islamist or not, his position as representative to OIC itself is illegitimate. Islamic isolationalism is a fundamental cause of many problems and most modern countries should do nothing to appease it.
