Nation of Islam response: Helping to correct Mr. Pipes errors.

Reader comment on item: Farrakhan Demands Reparations from Jews

Submitted by Muniqui Muhammad (Japan), Jul 13, 2010 at 02:34

Dear Mr. Pipes,

Knowing you to be a person of your intellect and stature, I find it shocking you could make such glaring mistakes in your analysis and then publish it to the outside world.

In your 8th paragraph, you state, quote, "For Farrakhan, dialogue equals reparations." Mr. Pipes, allow me to correct your misunderstanding. The word, "Dialogue" according to the Oxford American Dictionary, is defined as: "a discussion between two or more people or groups, esp. one directed toward exploration of a particular subject or resolution of a problem. i.e. the U.S. would enter into a direct dialogue with Vietnam | interfaith dialogue." In other words, it means to talk about a particular subject.

Also, Mr. Pipes, someone should have told you that projecting your thoughts onto Minister Farrakhan's words and then reacting to you your projection like it is the truth, is very unprofessional and dishonest. Deal with what Minister Farrakhan said. He said "Dialogue."

I hope you receive this correction in the spirit it was written. I also hope that before you write about something that you take the time to research the topic that you are going to write about. In other words, read the books before you talk about what you do not know, sir.

Thank you,
Muniqui Muhammad
The Nation of Islam
