Comment to #643 Correction to Pope and the Koran

Reader comment on item: A Key Change to "The Pope and the Koran"

Submitted by William Sumner Scott (United States), Jan 29, 2006 at 04:29

Mr. Pipes,

The significant news is that the Pope has expressed his opinions on the Islam and the Koran. The norm is for the leaders of the three great religions of Abraham to refrain from comment about the other two. But your columns and comments have forced the concurrence of the other attendees that the Pope had in fact voiced his opinions - what the opinions are is secondary to the admission that the leader of one of the religions of Abraham has opinions about one of the others. You have been a catalyst for dialog.

That they would respond to attempt to correct you is testimonial to your audience. In our opinion, you are the most important voice on how to deal with Islamist violence in America today.
