Change in Iran affects little; Militant. Islam lives because of Saudi royal dreams

Reader comment on item: [The Need to Name and] Know Thy Terrorists

Dr. Pipes, you are correct. Bush and the crowd have to start telling as it is. The soft light on Militant Islam merely results in confusion.

Re: John Wilkinson comment: Changes in Iran are limited to Shiite Islam. The only difference it makes is to the shias in Lebanon and Iran. Wahhabis don't view the Shias as muslim anyway. So ripples from Iran do not travel far.

It is the meglomanic dreams of the US-educated princes of Saudi Arabia that support and nourish the major portion of Militant Islam. It is not a question of the US telling the SA royals that either they take care or we will. They are the root cause of many of the problems being spread around the world.
