Question for Daniel Pipes on how to gain knowledge

Reader comment on item: A Muhammad Cartoon a Day

Submitted by Mark Klow (United States), Sep 22, 2012 at 02:25

Question: How can you possibly have any idea what you are talking about and claim to run an educational website. You don't even grasp basic tennants of islam that i have learned from taking 3 months of an intro to islamic history class.

"display the Muhammad cartoon daily until the Islamists get used to the fact that we turn sacred cows into hamburger..." Muslims dont believe cows are sacred" (I assume you are ignorant and are confusing Muslims with Hindus?) You state that they want to impose their culture on the west and we cannot capitulate. I cannot imagine a statement with less support or accuracy. If anything they want as much distance from the west as possible. All they are asking for is to be left alone.

Why do conservatives fail to understand America and the west has brought this upon themselves with persistent colonization, and taking advantage of arab oil states. I simply cannot comprehend your ignorance or how you can publish this with out a shred of evidence or support. I suggest you learn some basics of Islam before you continue your pretend career as a writer. Throughout history Islam as tried to create a society that it believes is proper. And over and over again dating back to the crusades, or the inquisition in spain they have not been allowed to practice freely and continue their culture. The violence against the west only stems from our attitude and actions towards them.
