Radical Non-Violent Islam

Reader comment on item: War against Radical Islamists

Submitted by Israel Pickholtz (Israel), Jun 16, 2002 at 10:50

It seems to me that the term Radical Islam is excellent because it makes the terror issue irrelevant, as it should be.

It seems to me that anyone who wishes to make the United States into a Saudi Arabian-type state - even doing so peacefully - is part of the enemy. No less so than those who do so by violent means.

(In the interest of full disclosure, let me point out that I am a US-born israeli.)
