Reader comment on item: A Sea of Horrors, But Wisps of Hope in the Middle East

I loved your speech. I learned so much and I think you have probably forgotten more than I have ever known about current foreign history.

I tthink you are an incredibly wise man, but I just don't understand why you think Obama's upbringing has no effect on his US policy. And please forgive me if I misunderstood you. But I am an avid reader of political policies and events happening here in the US and Obama has not just me but every conservative you might ask wondering why is he allowing muslim ideas and laws to supercede our constitution and it's law.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Thank you for the compliments. Yes, Obama is soft on Islamism, helping the Islamic Republic of Iran, and much more. But does he stand out in any way from other left-wing Democrats in this? What policy can you point to where his being born and raised as a Muslim distinguishes him from his comrades?
