Reader comment on item: Arguing over "Jihad and the Professors"

Dear Daniel,

For months you and I have been trading e-mail snippets on Islam, and I have repeatedly told you that there is no quarter with these people. Now you see that even when you give them the benefit of the doubt, they still rail on you. Herein lies the lesson: Democrats have used the same bait tactics ad nauseum... when Pres. Bush agrees with their position on anything, they later use it as a bludgeon against him, thanking him for the yielded ground while at the same time criticizing him for anything else that is wrong in their eyes. Islam is forced subversion and subjugation, period. Their moanings about inner struggles are akin to Nazis who struggled with Hitler's policies internally, but yet still somehow managed to find it within themselves to carry out the slaughter of millions of Jews, Poles, gypsies, etc. as long as they were in power. How reticent and contrite they became after the war, as opposed to how hellish and brutal they were during it. Now they arrogantly and condescendingly tell you that what you say is the true meaning of fundamental Islam is wrong no matter which way you put it. If you try to kick the football, you fall for the bad snap every time. Beware of the Lucy's of this age. Watch your back, buddy.
