Dear Dr. Pipes:

I could not agree with you more about the news media thinking that they are immune to these radical Islamic murderers, who would kill them in a second if they were to come to power in the West. I guess they forget what the Nazis & Communists did to the intellectuals and anyone with a high school education or beyond during their respective reigns of terror.

Perhaps the best example occurred during the fall of South Vietnam. When the the North Vietnamese regulars came to Saigon, the NLF membership was rewarded with imprisonment in re-education camps or execution.

It is not biased reporting to refuse to interview and give moral recognition to these blood-thirsty psychopaths.
