American Indians

Reader comment on item: Ariel Sharon's Folly

Submitted by Ellyn L Wood (United States), Apr 5, 2005 at 18:40

Dear Mr. Pipes,

First let me state that I am an avid supporter of your work. But you posed a "challenge to the reader" to name a democracy that forcibly removed thousands of its own citizens from their homes. The United States did this twice I believe. Once with the native American Indians, and again at the onset of WWII with the Japanese-American citizens. Not to imply that what Mr. Sharon is doing is not foolish, but these examples popped into my head and I had to share them.
At least you know I'm reading your articles. :)

Keep up the your good work, and may God Bless you every day!

Ellyn Wood
