Reader comment on item: "At War with Islamic Fascists"

Mr Pipes.

This site is fantastic in that one can have a clear discussion on what lies at the heart of the problem that is Islam. I do notice however that so many of the posts are in fact reiterating the same comments that "we have a problem & its name is Islam". I, like so many others have grown tired of excuses and gross lies perpetuated by the Islamic bodies in support of a religion that is in dire need of self analysis. That Islam resists this and shelters behind outrageous justifications and doublespeak borders on the absurd. So... My question to you Mr Pipes (or perhaps you can provide a link to a previous thread covering this) is

what is your honest opinion of how the face of Islam may look 5, 10, 20 - even 50 years from now..? How can we realistically expect to turn around the thought process of so many, which wallow in victimhood, pious lies, violence and absurdity and is hostile to questioning or reason..? Do you predict a wave of collective enlightenment or further backwardness and bigotry across the Islamic world..?

Daniel Pipes replies:

I am more optimistic. I see this as a uniquely bleak period in Muslim history, roughly analogous to the Nazi period in German history. It will pass eventually; much sooner if the Islamist menace is decisively defeated.
