2. Pipes can go to hell
Just hearing him speak on CSpan one morning motivated me to get involved with the Arab American Institute run by Dr. James Zogby. I've never seen such an intellectual bigot on the scale of Daniel Pipes.

In a letter to the NY Post, Dr. Zogby best describes Mr. Pipes' viewpoint on Islam.

"Daniel Pipes has a problemhis obsessive hatred of all things Muslim. In an article many years ago, Pipes accused Arabs and Muslims of being obsessed with Jews. In fact, it is Pipes who goes to bed at night and wakes up in the morning worried about the Muslim under his bed and all things Arab.

"It used to be said that an anti-Semite was someone who would say some of my best friends are Jews because what the anti-Semite feared was not individual Jews but organized Jewry. While Pipes will acknowledge a good Muslim here or there he has never met a Muslim organization, institution or mosque that he does not fear or revile. Even efforts to simply explain the religion are subject to his wrath.

"Pipes is to Muslims what David Duke is to African Americans. Thank goodness the Post does not employ Duke as a columnist. One bigot is enough."


President Bush used a "recess appointment" to put Mr. Pipes on the US Institute of Peace.
