"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"?"

Mandi, we already know the cause. Islam. There is no need to look any further or to complicate the issue. Islam is the problem. Everywhere that Islam rules, people are poor, miserable, ignorant, violent, and depraved. It is a side effect of the depravity and ignorance that is defined by Islam itself.

"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's not the duty of the international community to "provide solutions or remedies". Muslims can see, and it is clearly obvious, that free society provides a far greater degree of happiness, freedom, and quality of life than the slavery of totalitarian death cults like Islam. They refuse to embrace freedom, regardless. So it's their problem. Let them reform their death cult into a peaceful religion, and things will improve for them. That is the only solution. Otherwise, no amount of aid, no other solutions, nothing else will lift them from their barbarity.

"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."

It isn't a pity. As I said, many of us have stopped to consider it, and it is as clear as daylight....the real cause is the cult of Islam. There is no question about it. To doubt that is to be in denial of reality. The only pity is that good and innocent people continue to be victims of the depravity of Islam because too many people indulge in ignorance and denial of reality when it comes to Islam, including the Western governments who refuse to take appropriate actions against Islam.
