  • moderate Islamists = moderate Nazis.
  • moderate Muslims = "good Germans"

A moderate muslim in this model is not a German, but a card carrying member of the Nazi party. You are asking 'moderate muslims/moderate nazi's' to dissent from within a party with totalitarian leadership.

Pure fantasy.

The only way a moderate muslim can demonstrate their rejection of radical Islam is to leave Islam altogether.

Many, many American muslims have left Islam since 9/11, so we know this is a reasonable request. The time has now come for democratic Americans to demand muslims forgo their current status of enemy combatants by leaving Islam and become loyal American citizens.

When we enter into a dialog with muslims we legitimize Islam in all its various guises. This is a huge, huge error.

Dr. Pipes, you have done more than almost anyone to warn of the dangers of Islam, but by engaging muslims of any kind you are making a fatal (and i really mean fatal) mistake. You are simply facilitating muslims goal to infiltrate American with Islam.

Moderate muslims are the true threat to America. Moderate Muslims are the true enemy, not the radicals. I implore to transfer your highly commendable efforts of fighting radicals to confronting a much greater threat and fight moderate muslims. It will be moderate muslims funding muslim political activism and voting for muslim senators who gradually introduce sharia law in this country. We are already seeing this with muslim cab drivers in michigan pushing for special treatment.

I urge you to stop trying to fight the radicals and confront the true enemy of moderate muslims.

Moderate muslims are tightening its grip on America as we speak and only total resolve and a total rejection of Islam in all its manifestations can give us hope.

Islam (the Arab empire) currently has control of 57 countries. That means Islam has defeated 56 countries. Islam is almost impossible to stop. Only complete and utter resistance to all things Islamic can give us any hope.

Please join us Dr. Pipes, we are fighting for our lives.
