We need more Daniel Pipes in this country

Reader comment on item: Militant Islam's New Strongholds

Submitted by Bob in Illinois (United States), Oct 29, 2002 at 14:03

The minority of folks who appear to be awake to the Islamists' threat in the USA have a major challenge to awaken their fellow Americans to the insidious threat and danger from within,thanks in big part to a bumbling INS.

We have had a generation deeply imbued with political correctness in the media, movies, books, newpapers, etc. Americans accept political correctness as reality . They will accept Islamists in the country who mean us nothing but harm, rather than to be accused of denying somebody individual freedoms and rights, even if this affords terrorists the rights to wreak havoc and destruction on us.

.This incredible naivete includes more than a few political leaders. I heard John McCain recently say in a TV interview that the problem is only that these folks just need jobs and opportunities like everybody else. How do we turn this around?

I'm not sure,but for starters, we need more Daniel Pipes in this country, because the challenge is great and the vast majority of Americans are in denial, or asleep...
