Pipes' depths plumbed

Militant about "Islamism":
"'It's a mistake to blame Islam, a religion 14 centuries old, for the evil that should be ascribed to militant Islam, a totalitarian ideology less than a century old. Militant Islam is the problem, but moderate Islam is the solution.'
~Daniel Pipes"

A very good review of the career and controversies of Daniel Pipes, head of the Middle East Forum in Philadelphia, from the Harvard Magazine. It is a useful introduction to the life and work of one of the clearest thinkers in the US on the subject of militant Islam. Highly recommended.
