Reader comment on item: Waging Jihad Through the American Courts
in response to reader comment: Waging Jihad through the American Courts. Many Muslims do not want Sharia Law.

Submitted by Mike (United States), Aug 10, 2018 at 15:59

After reading the article by D. Pipes, I read this other side of the coin:

"A founding father of American Islam struggles to put raids behind him," By Michelle Boorstein
August 21, 2011, Washington Post

... Just because someone is a Muslim does not make for terrorism. Why would Mr. Pipes call the one whose house was burst through with a battering ram and where his wife and teen-aged daughter, both U.S. citizens, were handcuffed for hours a "jihadist," when there was no evidence to incriminate him with anything?

None of us would appreciate such unfair treatment; why this terrible prejudice?
