  1. Hey Rich, I think you should cover more stories that show people actually “metaknim et haolam”. Just showing people that are “breaking” it isn’t going to help. Provide solutions, not just blame or criticize others for doing wrong.

    Tikkun Olam has a positive active aspect to it. Not just a negative critical aspect of it.

    Stay true to the beaufitul idea/value/ethic of “Tikkun Olam”.

  2. How is Pipes a Muslim hater? Can you find a single statement of his that would qualify him as such? In fact the article you link to shows the opposite: he argues that 10-15% of Muslims are extremist, which means he thinks that 85-90% of Muslims are peaceful and moderate. How is that hatemongering??? What if someone called you an anti-semite if you criticize Israel, or extremist settlers, who are also a minority like the extremist Muslims?

  3. @Yoni: Pls Yoni. Don’t make us out to be fools. He believes Muslim Americans are a Fifth Column within U.S. society seeking to damage or overthrow our democractic form of government.

    He once suggested totally obliterating any Gaza village from which a Qassam was launched as proper punishment for attacking Israel. Pipes is a ghoulish verbally homicidal hatemonger.

  4. He’s distinguished, all right, but not for anything good.

    I first heard of Pipes in a review of his _Conspiracy_. I read it and thought it good. Later, I stumbled on to his web site and realized that the reason he could write with such understanding about conspiracy theorists was that he was one himself!

    It was full of nonsense about the US turning muslim in a few years, about a supposed plot to turn the US into an Islamic Republic, and advocated “interning” some large number of muslims (not all but most). The stuff about Islam being the fastest growing religion in the USA is particularly dubious; Mormons, Pentecostals, even Wiccans, make the same claim! Pipes seemed not to know just how much competition there is in the conversion business in the USA!
