Reader comment on item: Bolstering Moderate Muslims
in response to reader comment: Support for moderate muslims?

Regarding the response to Henk Twerda on "Bolstering Moderate Muslims", Dr. Pipes states

"Shoebat: He deals with the Arab-Israeli conflict, not radical Islam, so is not part of this particular discussion."

With all due respect, Dr. Pipes, the Arab-Israeli conflict IS rooted in radical Islam!

The fundamental teaching within Islamic ideology calls for the expulsion of Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula until no one is left except for Muslims. The Hamas and PLO mission statements are rooted in this radical Islamic command as so ordered by the recorded words of the Islamic prophet, Muhammad.

Such teachings from the Qur'an and Ahadith are the driving force behind Islamic extremism which result in persecution of Jews and Christians, terror strikes against non-Islamic societies and attempts to gain world dominance; a fact that should not be denied.
