I do indeed share Walter's thoughts on the mentality of Dr. Pipes and others who maintain that there are two factions of Islam. I have indeed also in the past voiced my objections to this.

Yes we appreciate Dr. Pipe's contribution and in fact in many ways does bring Islam to the fore in many a good way. In fact he has given us (with the Help of Allah SWT) a forum to air our views responsibly.

However there is nothing like "Moderate Islam" and "Radical Islam" and unfortunately Dr. Pipes keeps refering to the two. Islam is Islam, in it's purist form as it was when brought down to mankind. If there are other happenings then there should be no confusion. Those have nothing to do with Islam although there are being done by our fellow Muslim brothers. Dr. Pipes, please give them a different name all together without having to use the word 'Islam'.
