Dr Daniel Pipes defect

Reader comment on item: Rethinking the Egypt-Israel "Peace" Treaty
in response to reader comment: The cartoons can in no way be called anti-semitic

Dr Daniel Pipes opponents always criticize his double standards in dealing with Islam. The CAIR detail their arguments on their website. I can disregard the CAIR argument for its traditional opposition to who ever come to criticize Islam. I can not disregard the fact that Dr Daniel Pipes defends Danish cartoons and at the same time take a Muslim like position in reacting to the Egyptian cartoons.

Daniel Pipes replies:

I don't recall my demanding that Eygptian embassies be burned, that trade with Egypt be cut off, and so forth. I am simply concluding that Egyptians harbor hostility toward Israel, in part from the popularity of the antisemitic motifs.

What has this to do with my insisting that Westerners not succumb to Shar`i rules concerning Muhammad?
