No we need to respond

Reader comment on item: Farrakhan Demands Reparations from Jews
in response to reader comment: why even bother responding?

Dear Dr Pipes:

You reader Nora says that we do not need to respond to the likes of Farrahkhan. In a gentlemen's gathering that may be the right approach. Unfortunately, millions of Islamists are saying the same things over and over again and in unison. If a thing is often repeated, it becomes the truth. Only yesterdaythere was a news story that the world opinion is turning against Israel. When 199 of the 200 governments of the world blow the palestinian horn, I am not surprised that Israel's point of view is under- represented. That is why, as correct as Nora is about Farrakhan, every time he and others like him open their mouths, they need to be responded to.
