An Open Letter To Sheik Daniel Pipes

Dear Sheik Daniel.

I am writing this letter to you in anticipation that you will one day decide to label me an Islamic terrorist.

It seems to me that anyone who tries to articulate some sort of viewpoint resembling Islam is automatically tarnished by you. I realise you hate me, and you want to inspire hate in others in the hope that they will kill me.

Am I being hysterical? Not really.

After all, you encouraged France and other countries with hostages in Iraq to lynch their Muslim communities. Indeed, you suggested this is an excellent way to discourage terrorism.

Thankfully, the family of Douglas Wood and the Australian Government did not follow your advice. The Government here actively sought involvement from Muslim Australians, including a controversial Imam. Mr Wood was freed. Your theory was proven wrong.

So why do I call you Sheik Daniel? Perhaps it is because you are so similar in many ways to The al-Qaida Network (TQN). And why do I say this?

TQN is committed to the establishment and maintenance of an Islamic state. They are not concerned about how this is established, whose toes they tread on and how many religious rules they flout. Theirs is a political agenda.

You, Sheik Daniel, are committed to the preservation of the Jewish state. And no, not a multicultural moderate Israel wishing piece with its neighbours.

You, Sheik Daniel, support the Israeli version of al-Qaida. You support the maintenance of Jewish settlements in Gaza. You have criticised Ariel Sharon for seeking to close down these settlement.

You are probably part of the team of extremists who took part in the “pulsa denura” ceremony on July 21 2005. Your death curse is so similar to the fatwas of al-Qaida and others calling upon certain Muslim leaders to be cursed and killed.

Now I understand you are probably already tracking what I have written and said in various places. That’s OK. I expect you to place a “pulsa denura on me in your website.

And I look forward to your curse. Because being cursed by anti-Semites like yourself is indeed a blessing. For indeed God smiles when the devil is angry.

If you were to curse me on your website, you will place me with a long list of moderate luminaries such as Hamza Yusuf Hanson and Khaled Abou el-Fadl. I would love to be in the company of devout Christians like the late Edward Said.

And so, Sheik Daniel, I have a request. Please. Consider issuing a “pulsa denura” on me. Go on. It will add so much to my credibility. Please consider my request. I will be ever-so grateful!

Yours faithfully,

  • Don't flatter yourself by thinking that Pipes would waste his time even reading your drivel.

    Also, where does Pipes call for France to lynch its native Muslims? I didn't find that reference in the article.

    You're out to lunch.

  • Salaams

    The only person out to lunch is Pipes, and anyone dim or amoral enough to bother defending him.

  • Yakoub,

    Were you able to find the reference to Pipes advocating the French lynching Muslims?

    Are your eyes better than mine?

  • You people are delusional. It's rather humorous the way your hate clouds over any sense of reality.

    You can't even answer a simple question.

    You hate Pipes because he is staunchly opposed to Islamists and those who support or make excuses for them...and all you can come up with is rhetoric and falsities and references to the "zionist entity".

    What a sad sad joke you people are.

  • Shayne is 100% right. Only Jew-hating, Islamonazi-loving terrorists could possibly interpret Pipes statement that "The abhorrent Nepalese violence reflected an instinct for self-preservation – hit me and I will hit you back....If history is a guide, the Nepalese thereby made a repetition of atrocities against themselves less likely" as an endorsement of retaliation against Muslims. Go to France, you Islamo-fascists.

  • Pipes will use whatver he can to brand all Muslims as extremists. The only Muslim, to him, that is NOT an extremist is a Muslim who refuses to practice his own religion. The only moderate Muslim to Pipes is one who drinks, eats pork, refuses to pray, and sleeps with every woman he meets.

    The types of your enemies says a lot about someone. If Daniel Pipes labels you an extremist then you know you are doing something right.

  • You are wrong there Abu Sinan,

    The only Muslims Pipes is opposed to are those who use the ideology as justification and motivation in blowing themselves up to inflict mass civilian casualties, along with those who support or make excuses for them.

    He often expresses outrage, most likely because it is so rare to see moderate Muslims condemn terrorists and the Islamist ideology outright.
