Dr. Pipes

I do believe that Turkey will be next on the agenda of ISIS and if the Turks for a minute believe that their country is immune from this cancer then they are dreaming in colors

The real conflict now is not just between Shia Islam and Sunni Islam but also between Iran (and the Persian culture and their hostility against the Arabs and Sunni Islam) v. Arab Sunni Islam and the Sunni Arabs have no like for Iran either

What would be the outcome? The victims will not only be Sunnis and Shia but also the minority communities and we might see the end of the very ancient Nestorian and Jacobite Christianity as well as the Armenian community and may be even the Kurdish control of the north may come to an end and this will be a disaster

Oh Obama? He is calling the members of ISIS Jihadis at last and as if we did not know that the word jihad means holy war
