Dear Prof Pipes,
Islamists and non-Muslim apologists of Islam have a typical mindset and can be easily discernible.They avoid to critisize the Islamic/Muslim dominated regimes for their poor Human Rights records for fear of retribution. There is no such fear in a liberal democracy.

Recent history shows that the countries which exported 'Ideology' have suffered.The USSR collapsed.In the 1960's, the Chinese were also fomenting trouble in North Eastern part of India.Saudi Arabia, Iran and Libya are exporting various shades of Islam.Pakistan is exporting terrorism to Kashmir, Chechnya etc.Out of all these exports, India is a victim. And India doesnot receive commensurate sympathy from the international community.

In my opinion, the USA should have attacked Saudi Arabia - a feudal monarchy while in Iraq, at least Baa'th party rule exists whatever it may mean. The USA should not impose 'democracy' on Iraq I am no admirer of Saddam Hussien who arranged the killing of his brother-in-law and executed two sons-in-law and innumerable political opponents.
Regards, Sincerely, S.C.Panda
Prof Daniel Pipes, Director, MEF, Philadelphia
