Pipes vs Auster = Winning vs Losing

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

Submitted by Octavio Johanson (Italy), Jan 28, 2005 at 18:24

Pipes's approach is much more sensible than Auster's. Militant Islam is the problem and it is morally wrong to suggest that 1 billion Muslims are all bad.

Pipes is doing a fantastic job in speaking out against Militant Islam, terrorists and the liberals who support them.

Auster reminds me of European far right-wingers, people who are good with words, but are worthless from a practical view-point.

Pipes reminds me of the pragmatist who has identified Militant Islam as a problem and is wrongfully called a "Islamophobe", but is not willing to shut up.

Pipes reminds me of a great pragmatist, like Ariel Sharon. Auster reminds me of somebody who will never be able to put his views into practice.
