May your critics be wrong!

Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

Submitted by Dixon Porter (Mexico), Aug 13, 2002 at 09:18

Dr. Pipes--

I am not a scholar in the field of Islamic studies, but I think you are correct in your interpretation of the current state of affairs. Let us pray that Bin Laden and al qaeda do not represent mainstream Islam. However, if you are wrong and your critics are right, God help us all, for we are in for a long, bloody war. We would probably win such a war, but at terrible cost!!

Thank you for your many insights.
