Reader comment on item: Education by Murder in Boston

Submitted by Peter Herz (United States), Apr 27, 2013 at 21:23

Dr. Pipes, I consider myself another person who has come to the painful conclusion that our societies in the West are getting a very painful education in what Islamism as an ideology is all about. Long ago, I read a book by Seyyid Qutb in translation, discounted it as likely to bear fruit, but now I have reconsidered, and guess that I may have read the actual desire of the Islamic street. The positions of leading Islamic clergy in much of the Dar-al-Islam is also very sobering.
