Daniel Pipes and Winston Churchill

Reader comment on item: Americans Wake Up to Islamism

Submitted by Arlinda DeAngelis (United States), Sep 20, 2010 at 14:45

I remember the lone soft toned relentless voice of Dr. Pipes after September 11th showing us, leading us, educating us on the global jihad that had slaughtered thousands of Americans and Israelis along with thousands throughout the rest of the world. His was the voice in the silence after the slaughter. He and he alone lit the darkness as Churchill did for our parents during WWII and the Cold War.

His teachings made us think boldly and his courageous actions when he was in Canada to calmly and boldly, with his life being threatened, give his lecture on the Islamist politics of the Middle East was a lesson for all of us. Despite the ranting hatred of those who wished to do him harm, Dr. Pipes flinched not for a moment, When he was appointed to the Institute of Peace, again with the courage of a warrior he stood his ground while some of the elitest and most powerful liberals including Senators Kennedy and Schummer and self proclaimed intellectuals i.e. Christopher Hitchens smeared his good name with accusations unworthy of even they who spewed them. Daniel was not afraid of their Goliath power, their money or their smear campaign. As a consequence of his couragen in these biblical like battles, we, the beleaguered people, became empowered.

While we passively watched the Islamists slaughter the Israelis, the ritual blood sacrifice of Islam took 3000 Americans and finally America woke up.

Thank God Dr. Pipes was there to counsel us while we buried our dead and sent our military out to war. Like Churchill he walked with and talked to us and he never ever not even once did he flinch under the hatred directed at us. His was the voice of freedom and courage. He represents the best of us and he is here for us even though our leaders have abandoned us.

Islam for all of its blood thirsty belicosity, its unending store of money and arms, its 2 billion blind frightened adherents and even its advocates and representatives among us and in the White House, nowhere among them is a Dr. Daniel Pipes. And, no where in the vicious world of the Third Reich, the USSR and/or in the CPPR did they have a Winston Churchill.

The quality of leadership is crucial in a dangerous world and Daniel Pipes is our Winston Churchill.
