Response to Jacob Carmiel

Reader comment on item: Radical Islam's Hypocrisy

Submitted by Alain Jean-Mairet (Switzerland), Jan 22, 2005 at 00:29

If CAIR was the thing you are depicting, Mr. Carmiel, it would not be questioned by Daniel Pipes. It would be mentioned here (http://www.danielpipes.org/blog/390) on his website.

Of course, Muslims are allowed to get to power if they obtain a majority, but we have to make sure they won't obtain it the way they got it everywhere else in the world today, that is by terror and despotism.

And in this regard, I'm sorry, but Mr. Pipes has it perfectly right. CAIR is an obviously anti-democratic organism, fighting for its goals in a way that makes them execrable.

If fundamentalist Islam was such a nice religion, it would conquer the world through people's hearts, with not even one single political institution, and without intimidation of any kind.
