Militant Islamists are Enemies Within

Reader comment on item: The Enemy Within [and the Need for Profiling]

Submitted by Ralph C.Whaley MD (United States), Jan 25, 2003 at 13:39

Dear Mr Pipes:

It is fully rational for our government agents to select adult male Muslims for special scrutiny in searching out "Enemies Within America". Militant Islam is dedicated to the destruction of America. Militant Islam revealed itself as such in declarations by Muslim Clerics in Iran when they and their brethren throughout the Muslim World declared America "The Great Satan". Their warriors demonstrated the serious significance of this characterization on 9/11/2001.

The likely suspects for future attacks are Militant Muslims, a sub group of Muslims. Every Muslim who is not an enemy of America should welcome the special scrutiny of Muslim adult males, as a rational act in defense not only of America but of themselves as well.

Ralph C. Whaley MD
