Dear Mr. Pipes,

I go along with C.S. Lewis' conclusion that Islam is the greatest of Judeo-Christian heresies. I do not believe they are the same God, if that were so we would have no conflict. Instead what I see happening is something similiar to what happened in Egypt, in old Biblical times when the God of Israel consumed Pharoah's dieties. I hope I am wrong, but I believe this is so - and I expect it will continue until Golda Meir's prophecy comes true when she states "There will be peace in the Middle East when the Arabs love their children more than they hate the Jews". I would add as others of my tradition have "...that there will be no peace in Jerusalem until the Messiah returns."
