Professor Pipes analyzed this accurately and without prejudice

Reader comment on item: The Palestinian-Israeli War: Where It Came From, and How to End It

This article reflects a candid, accurate, and unprejudiced view of the situation for Israel and the so-called "Palestinian" State. I find it remarkable that a scholar like Daniel Pipes could be so objective and critical without bias against Islam or the Arab population in Gaza, the West Bank, and East Jerusalem, which has been so recalcitrant ever since 1948.

Prof. Pipes is absolutely correct that Hamas and organizations like it will refuse to yield the notion that Israel must be destroyed, just as the old Roman adage expressed it similarly, Cathago delende est! Despite the decades of Arab humiliation in conflicts with Israel, Muslim extremists and terrorists will persist in attacks on the Israeli people. When Daniel Pipes is candid about the realities of life in the modern Middle East, others will accuse him of prejudice; but I find that his opiinions are factual and accurate.
