1. At the risk of sticking up for someone who can certainly defend his own ground, just what are you implying when you suggest to Dr. Daniel Pipes that he would benefit from a few hours of reading the Koran to obtain a better understanding of Believers' mindset? Do you have the slightest idea of this man's credentials and background?

2. Committing the entire Koran to memory would do nothing to explain the psychology of Muslims. Spending your life in a backward theocracy surrounded by morons screaming "Death to the Infidel" would prove slightly more beneficial.
