Dr. Pipes is also shy about calling islam the enemy. He keeps talking about islamism as the enemy. Hence his blame on Obama admn. is only half-correct. Bush was even more in cahoots with various muslim crypto-fascist leaders.

Islam with it absolutism and finalism is the real evil and real danger to a decent, relaxed, non-violent, rational human life on the earth. Islamism is only its logical consequence. If a poisonous snake's fangs are removed then they re-grow and the poison-producing glands are kill-ready again. Islamism is only the delivery mechanism of islam.
