Home-grown Terrorists

Reader comment on item: [Beltway Snipers]: Converts to Violence?

Submitted by Lee Cary (United States), Oct 25, 2002 at 12:29

Daniel Pipes continues his clear and articulate warning of the dangers posed to the US by militant Islamists--including those home-grown in the domestic greenhouses of hate like the Nation of Islam. Some will squawk that he seems to challenge free speech. But they underestimate the cumulative, compounding influence of years of vituperative speech on subsequent resulting violence. The greenhouses of hate that abound throughout the Middle East, exist here. And, if left to their own devices, militant Islamists would themselves nullify the freedoms that even now protect them. I believe we are awakening to the threat.
