This distinction is valueless

Reader comment on item: Intimidating the West, from Rushdie to Benedict
in response to reader comment: Daniel the "intellectual War Lord" of Bush Must reply! Intimidating the West, or Intimidating the Muslim World?

The terrorists of the 911 vintage were all Muslims. Before their action no one gave them the appelation of Islamists. The distinction is valueless since all Islamists come from Muslim background, and Muslims generally put Islamists on the pedestal for having carried out Muslim intentions to the letter. Mr Pipes...still clings to decency, fraternity, justice and freedom though these are flouted, indeed abused, by Muslims and Islamists alike. Islam is proving itself daily as the scourge of mankind, and womankind, and wherever Muslims are, bloodshed reigns. The few Muslims who are truloy moderate are hounded to death, their voices drowned in a Niagara of hate-talk. The riposte by Naimat is ample proof.
