Reader comment on item: Speaker Shouted Down at U.C.-Irvine

Mr Pipes

I witnessed your interview on Hannity& Colmes, and was once again struck by the naivete of Alan Colmes. once again he seems to refuse to understand the virulence of the speech coming from these jihadists, and also the threat posed by 25 million fanatics, And the fact that they mean what they say. The fact that the university said that they were ok with that type of vitriol speaks volumes.

I am afraid that this country has once again lost sight of the threat that we face as a country. What we are observing in Europe will soon enough reach our shores. I disagree with you on one point, i believe the so-called moderates in the Muslim world are the ones who do not read the koran. once they do, they swept up in the 7th century mentality of jihad,and subjection of anyone not of the muslim faith. Winston Churchill warned long ago of the threat posed by Islamists. It is too bad that we don't learn from history.
