do you really believe this is the future?

Reader comment on item: Jihad through History

Submitted by Laura Maizels (Canada), Jun 5, 2005 at 01:27

Daniel Pipes: I have the deepest regard for your wisdom; generally, I take everything you say regarding a subject at face value and know you would not have opinions until you have done extensive research.

But, we diverge here. I do not believe in the near future 'moderate' Islam will emerge. I would pray you are correct, but I fear it is wishful thinking on your part. The reality will be horrific crimes against the rest of us if I am right, but I fear, there is no such thing as 'moderate' Islam. Not one which has any power to overthrow the extremists. No, I fear the free world, (really I mean the US), will have to deliver the death blow to radical Islam if the rest of us are to live in any really peaceful world.

Best regards, wishing you success in the wonderful work you do on behalf of all of us who wish to survive.
