Who Will Be the First

Reader comment on item: Islamists, Get Out

Submitted by Arlinda DeAngelis (United States), Aug 31, 2005 at 08:37

"Who will be the first?" is one of the most prescient statements in American history. It takes incredible courage and a passion for democracy, freedom and the preservation for our way of life to suggest that democracy and totalitarianism cannot exist in the same space, in one country, in one nation at the same time.

Dr. Pipes points out that, we the people are waiting for our elected officials, our so called leaders, to catch up with us in demanding that extremists exercise their right of dual citizenship and leave the country. Our elected representatives are hiding behind last century's "muli-cultural" fiasco.

The ultimate symbol of enslavement, the burqa, the banning of alcohol, the call for Sharia law are the indicators for extremism.and it is, indeed, time for the extremists to leave this democracy and every other democracy.

Again and again and again Dr. Pipes identifies the problem and gives us the solution. All we have to do is exercise his advice.
