Moderate Islam is the solution?

Reader comment on item: Once considered anti-Islam, senior scholar says he's now in the middle

Submitted by J Pappas (United States), Aug 22, 2010 at 11:27

Presumably the unspoken difference that Boorstein alludes to is that Pipes believes in the emergence (or re-emergence) of moderate Islam. We'll see.

Of course, Pipes is too articulate and level-headed. Islamists would rather refute less nuanced writers that have little hope of capturing a wide audience.

Pipes will always remain an influence on the anti-jihadi intellectuals. His voice is indispensible.
