Article Is A Wake Up Call To The West

Reader comment on item: Intimidating the West, from Rushdie to Benedict

Submitted by AnneM (United States), Sep 26, 2006 at 12:08

This commetary by Daniel Pipes should serve as a major wake up call to the west of a dangerous pattern by Islamists. The timeline of events since 1989 with the fatwa against Salman Rushdie leading up to the recent issue of Pope Benedict citing an historic document on the history of the violence of force conversion in Islam must be viewed by people in the west as a great cause for concern for the protection of civil liberties.
