in response to reader comment: Will Egypt pass on to Islamists

Dear Dr Pipes:

The concern that Egypt/Libya/Tunisia will slip into extremist's/islamist's hands is legitimate but a redeeming questions is the following: will the FaceBook generation that stood up against these tyrants tolerate the tyranny of the mullahs? I hope and believe that it is the religious tyrants who should be most worried of these uprisings. Some people say that 600 years ago the Christian world suffered from the same maladies that the Islamic world suffers from now. They might be right. The changes that took 600 years to occur in the Church, might occur in the Mosque in just 60 years.
