Daniel Pipes was right, "faith follows the flag"

Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran
in response to reader comment: Why do people convert to Islam?

Submitted by j.m. (United States), Jan 27, 2006 at 00:57

The "religious" wars of Islam are indeed brutal and horrible. You often hear of the Christian perspective, but the wars of eradication are truly found everywere. This account is absolutely horrible. The complete horror associated with the siege of India really universalizes the threat of Islam.

I guess in most religions they promote peace universally and totally. Islam more and more seems to hold exceptions for everyone un-Islamic.

This is really getting ridiculous. Keep the Muslims at the Mecca.

When they bombed the twin towers on September 11, I distinctly remember the owners and workers of a Muslim gas station celebrating, openly! These were later reported, but I do not think any measures were taken with them. Deep down with every terror attack, all these Muslims are smiling, and they think they convert all us peaceables.
