Different way of looking at it

Reader comment on item: Debate in London: Radical Islam vs. Civilization

In answer to the question: "The great question of our time is how to prevent this movement, akin to fascism and communism, from getting stronger" I will try to provide a different view.

Does anyone care enough to search and learn about the origins and causes of what Dr. Pipes describes as "barbaric" and "akin to fascism and communism"? Can it not be just a group of people going through crisis to whom the international community (the civilized world) failed to provide solutions or remedies? It is a real pity that such profound thinkers never stopped to consider the real causes behind the behavior of their fellow humans without discriminating against them. I believe that if we do so we may save the time and resources to fight more worthy enemies to be fought: hunger, disease, ignorance.
