  1. “This is the guy (Pipes) who believes that Islam is an evil religion (except for the few Muslim “moderates” like Nona Darwish and Wafa Sultan who denounce their co-religionists and embrace Zionism).”

    – When/where has Pipes said or written that he regards not just some Muslims as evil, but that he considers the religion (Islam) which they profess to observe evil? (You don’t believe Judaism to be an evil religion, do you, yet you regularly denounce many Jews you consider evil, don’t you?) Please cite the most telling evidence you can produce in support of your allegation that Pipes “believes that Islam is an evil religion.”

    – What are the scare quotes you put around “moderates” meant to imply? You scorn the likes of Nona Darwish and Wafa Sultan because they are “inauthentic” Muslims? Or, because they are “disloyal” as evidenced by their willingness to “denounce their co-religionists?” Or, because they, like the pseudonymous Jeremiah Haber of The Magnes Zionist (and you, RS?), “embrace Zionism?” Or, because they are not the type of Muslim you personally prefer? Do you hold Hirsan Ali in contempt too?

  2. I noticed the date on this post was the 14th. I guess some of us were in synagogue and some of us weren’t.

  3. I guess some of us were in synagogue and some of us weren’t.

    I wasn’t aware that Jews were in synagogue 24 hours on Rosh Hashana. At my synagogue they let us go home after services. But this does make me feel guilty I didn’t put Rosh Hashana greetings in my blog, which I should’ve done.

  4. Thanks for the big laugh, Mr. Pearlman. It’s nice and very reassuring to know the religious thought police are keeping hearty vigil. We’re counting on you, BP!

  5. “Giuliani has opened his arms to some of the most wingnutty of Jewish right-wingers.”

    No surprise here. Rabbi Abraham Hecht and then-New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind (Kahane’s former right hand in the Jewish Defense League) were among those supporting Giuliani in his mayoral campaign. In their fine book, Murder in the Name of God, detailing the role of religious extremism in the murder of Yitzhak Rabin, Michael Karpin and Ina Friedman have a photo of Hizonor sharing the diaz with these 2 sterling gentleman, as well as Sam Domb, all of whom were considered to have helped to create the environment leading to the murder of Rabin. From the book review: [http://www.acjna.org/acjna/articles_detail.aspx?id=117]

    Karpin and Friedman …describe the campaign of hatred that Orthodox circles and Jewish extremists in New York City launched against Rabin and his government. Masterminding the effort were such figures as New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind (Kahane’s former right hand in the Jewish Defense League), Rabbis Abraham Hecht and Herbert Bomzer, and businessmen Sam Domb and Jack Avital…
    Rabbi Abraham Hecht, head of the Rabbinical Alliance of America, declared that surrendering any part of the biblical Land of Israel is a violation of Jewish religious law and, thus, assassinating Rabin, and all who assist him, is both permissible and necessary.

    Ironic bedfellows for Mr. Law & Order.

  6. Ironic bedfellows for Mr. Law & Order.

    Rudy’s only in favor of law & order for Israelis (Jews) and Anglos. Palestinians & U.S. minorities don’t deserve the full protection of the law since they’re basically untermenschen anyway.

  7. When/where has Pipes said or written that he regards not just some Muslims as evil, but that he considers the religion (Islam) which they profess to observe evil?

    Pipes has stated that all Arab American Muslims should be viewed essentially as terror suspects and used a horrifying analogy that referred to rapists. His views on Islam are clear to all but you, him, Rudy Giuliani, & his supporters.

    you regularly denounce many Jews you consider evil

    What’s that supposed to mean? I don’t denounce anyone because they are Jewish and I don’t consider ‘many Jews’ evil.

    Please cite the most telling evidence you can produce

    What do you think this is–a high school history final? Sorry, I don’t produce evidence on demand.

    Do you hold Hirsan Ali in contempt too?

    She is a fellow at AEI & has decided to turn to the political right-wing for support. I don’t have much respect for her no. But ‘contempt?’ I wouldn’t say that.
