Reader comment on item: CAIR Leader: Overthrow the U.S. Government
in response to reader comment: A very humble request

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Nov 14, 2016 at 23:59

Dear Dr Pipes, In the above message I mentioned the names of many people who have vouched for democracy, human rights and freedom and spoken about the fears faced by Muslim citizens of US after Donald Trump's victory. What they are doing is indeed admirable however the silence of these people about lack of freedom, democracy, secularism, and human rights in the Islamic countries and possibly in the Islamic doctrine itself smells of hypocrisy and irresponsibility.

In the last two days two additional US Muslims have joined the chorus. Fareed Zakaria of CNN and Hasan Minhaj of Daily Show recently joined the chorus. The also talked about what America needs to be without talking about what the Islamic world needs to be. I add these two people in my humble request. If these prominent people persistently talk about bring secular democracy in the Islamic world a lot good with come to our planet.

I just want to add that when between Nov 8 and 11 CAIR and these apologists were discussing he fear and potential verbal attacks on Muslims in America, in Pakistan several dozen people were killed by ISIL in an attach on a shrine. Everyone who is genuinely concerned about Muslim lives will not rest until true and real secular democracy comes to Islamic countries.
