Absolutely Amazing. Thank you!

Reader comment on item: MPAC, CAIR, and Praising Osama bin Laden

All of Dr. Pipes' articles are profound and illuminating. I don't miss one. And I am always grateful for them.

But this one gave me chills. This kind of intellectual depth of research -- for which both Pipes and Emerson are famous -- is the most powerful tool we have. With media asleep at the wheel, covering so little of what is actually going on, an article like this exposes the dark undercurrents of some of America's most important so-called moderate Muslim organizations. I am firm believer in the existence of moderate Muslims and support them. At the same time, it's clear that those masquerading as moderates who hold these beliefs, have supported these statements -- AND WHO WILL LIE TO US ON NATIONAL TV ABOUT IT, WHILE CALLING SOMEONE LIKE EMERSON A LIAR -- absolutely must be exposed.

It is a vast undertaking, ever rifling through yellowing newspapers and haunting the stacks of dusty back corners of libraries. It takes long hours of hard work. And it delivers like nothing else.

Thanks to Steve Emerson, who is amazing in this work. And to Dr. Daniel Pipes for the endless energy to tell the truth, always citing unimpeachable sources and introcontrovertible evidece.

I thank you for myself, for my country, for those too weak or scared to speak out, and for the people who will come after us. You are amazing. Thank you.
