Sorry dear Daniel Pipes, fascists are now your favorite allies. We both had sympathies for each other as we had a common understanding of Islamism, its roots and the way to fight it. But you see in the fascists a perspective, I don´t share. In our interviews you wanted to advice them, now you support them openly. Not with me. Don´t believe in this tactical philosemitism of parts of them while others deny the Holocaust and are openly antisemitic. . I´m astonished that you as a Jew forget about the history of European facism, the Holocaust and the mass killing of Jews. And stop talking about the Islamization of Europe as nobody let´s Muslims in anymore. Most migrants will be secular or Christians young unemployed people from East and Southeurope. That´s paranoid talk as you already think that Obama is a Muslim or that Al-Sissi was member of the Musilmbrotherhood. Sorry that we have to seperate, but your vision is fascist and paranoid.Join Steve Bannon–I´m on the other frontline!
I remember what Daniel Pipes said about Trump and this words made me sympathetic to him:
“Trump’s boorish, selfish, puerile, and repulsive character, combined with his prideful ignorance, his off-the-cuff policy making, and his neo-fascist tendencies make him the most divisive and scary of any serious presidential candidate in American history. He is precisely “the man the founders feared” in Peter Wehner´s memorable phrase. I want to be no part of this. (…)the conservative movement, to which I belong, has developed since the 1950s into a major intellectual force. It did so by building on several key ideas (limited government, a moral order, and a foreign policy reflecting American interests and values). But the cultural abyss and constitutional nightmare of a Trump presidency will likely destroy this delicate creation (…) For the Republican Party to recover its soul, Trump needs to be thumped in November. Purged of his influence, the party of Lincoln and Reagan can rebuild.”
But Daniel Pipes has crossed the line to support Trump, Steve Bannon and any rightwinged and facist party which is against Islamism and Islam. That´s the borderline I have to seperate from him. He is just an islamophobe paranoid rightwinged Jew and pro-Israel lobbyist who envisions all dangers from the Muslim world and doesn´t care about the rest of the world, e.g. that Trump and Bannon want to desintegrate the world order, the Paris Accord, the WTO, the transatlantic relations, the UNO, etc.Daniel Pipes has just two categories: How to fight Islamism and how to make Israel stronger. The rest of the world and its billions of people don´t care.Not enough: He and his Middle East Forum sponsored by US evangelicals, Republicans, Israel´s Likud and right winged parties even prefer an anti-Islam bloc of authotarian states in the USA and by European fascist parties.As Pipes says: „Civilizationist (or “far-right”) parties are key to saving Europe.“ This is the kind of Clash of Civilizations ala Huntington Pipes wants to promote which he before critizised.It was all camouflage. That´s exactly the reason why I distance myself from him and his paranoid, islamophobe and fascist ideas.There is no possible alliance between right and left counterjihad.
