Yes you are quite right! I do agree with you and Dr Pipes! And no, I did not learn anything form your pal Susan whom I am given to understand is Italian. I do not know her, nor she me, nor do I want to! However, pepole are entitled to their views without receiving rants like that!

I know many Moslems and most of the assimilated ones are sick to death of The attention given to the extremists. As one said to me, 'I have lived here forty years, proud of my Britishness, my children educated in Catholic schools, both in good jobs never a problem. Now I have to face the mulahs and their ignorance, hated..again even in England! I fled Pakistan all those years ago to escape this!'

Now there you are, from the horse's mouth. And there are many like them! That is who I am talking about. I was perhaps a little harsh on your pal Susan whom I believe is having a hard time at present, according to your 'Ianus' mate! Well, we all have harsh times and so a little give and take on either side is in order perhaps?

I do not change what I have said and if Susan wants to debate then good...but in a calm manner not trading insults! This is just a waste of time and aids our enemy-Islamism!

Go to my website www.guyleven-torres.co.uk and read my latest article on Turkey Civil War Icon at top left side of Home page! There is the result of the exchange of fire over the last two or three days.

And I would remind ourselves of Voltaire who stated (and others in similar vein) 'I may not like what you say but I will defend your right to say it to the death!' That is something I passionately believe and fought for all my life in military and academic terms. Maybe you and Susan would like to consider this.

Again I will debate with you in courteous terms but not trade insults with you or her!

I admire spark and commitment but not the above.

There is an old maxim in Academia that states' The more one reads the less one knows!'

That is something I have learned a long time ago and I wish many academics and experts would do the same!

Thank you for your comments
