Evil has hit the rock bottom

Reader comment on item: Hijabs on Western Public Women

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Nov 16, 2014 at 20:32

Dear Dr Pipes,

you have published pictures of many western political women wearing hijabs. But there is one picture of a woman in hijab that I hope you never publish. Because it is so heart breaking. Today the ISIS barbarians killed Peter Kassig. Peter Kassig went to Syria to help the people suffering in the war. During his captivity either by conviction or by compulsion (I hope the latter) he converted to Islam.

For several months now Peter Kassig's mother has been appealing to the ISIS barbarians to free her son. In all of her appeals she acknowledged his conversion to Islam and in many of her appeals she wore a hijab. I salute Peter Kassig's mother for bowing before the ISIS devel so her son's life can be saved. When mothers in that part of the world become like Kassig's mother, peace will come to our planet. A human life is more important than any promise of heaven. The mother of every terrorist who is raising a gun in the air, must stand up and stop him. God needs no defence. No human should fight for God's plight. God can defend Himself if he needs to.

I have used the word barbarians to describe the ISIS people. That is because I am being very polite. Much worse words come to my mind. The news site that I read had the story of Peter's murder at the top position for less than five hours. That is wrong. We must never forget this news. Never.

Daniel Pipes replies:

I do not plan to include Kessig's mother for the reason that she is not prominent.
