Let them show their true colors

Reader comment on item: Television in Time of War

Dear Dr. Pipes,

nobody can expose and discredit islamists better than themselves. For those in the audience who is not yet sure about whom we are dealing with it is one thing to hear from you that they are bad (may be you have them misunderstood or misrepresented?), and the other - to hear from themselves about what do they want. You successfully used against Azzam Tamimi his own words in interview with Tim Sebastian (Tim did very well!), so do not underestimate potential of this weapon. Bring them before public, let people see them cewing carpet, spewing hate, being uncivil. Do not mistrust public. Tamimi recruited nobody during that interview, but many of those who were unsure about his agenda lost their doubts.

Joseph K.
