So by your own argument you have supported Iranian policy in both Syria and Lebanon with respect to Hezbollah.

Your refusal to call the ISIS as terrorists is a very interesting one.

Daniel Pipes replies:

You slightly miss the point. I am relatively unconcerned about ISIS because I am focused on the Iranian threat.

As for "terrorist," it's a useless term that I long ago stopped using. Jihadi or murderer are my terms of choice.
