Reader comment on item: [Breivik and] Norway's Terrorism in Context

Dr. Pipes - With all due respect, I believe it is a grave error to first characterize the writer as psychologically deranged, but then to give a close reading of his screed, and publish an "analysis" including direct quotations as if that would give the reader reasonable insight to his motivation. I credit your curiosity but what is possibly gained at the expense of spreading his pathological message?

His writings are being used to discredit those of us who are cited in them. We who are cited must therefore respond.
