How about the UN meeting?

Reader comment on item: [The Search for Moderate Islam:] A Reply to Lawrence Auster

Submitted by Simon Cohen (France), Jan 28, 2005 at 10:58

I dare write to you in English although it is not my usual language so please excuse the mistakes.Since I found your e-mail address, I read your articles every day and I admire you.I am french and I was born and spend my youth in Tunis so I can say I know the Arabs and when I say I know I mean that I had many Arab friends, I speak their language or rather the tunisian dialect. I liked very much my arab friends but noone of them was an Islamist. Things have changed and some of them turned islamists. I read very carefully your response to Lawrence Auster and I think you are right, but can one accept that at a UN meeting against antisemitism and in the very moment that we commemorate 60 years after the departation, no Arab state except Jordan attended this meeting?

Yours sincerely,

Daniel Pipes replies:

No, the general absence of Muslim countries from the Holocaust memorial is not acceptable. It confirms the widespread antisemitism and political extremism in those countries.
