Famous Bigot Quotes:

“Muslims are only 4 percent of Denmark’s 5.4 million people but make up a majority of the country’s convicted rapists, an especially combustible issue given that practically all the female victims are non-Muslim.” (New York Times)

“The Koran is a not ‘a product of Muhammad or even of Arabia,’ but a collection of earlier Judeo-Christian liturgical materials stitched together to meet the needs of a later age…A few scholars go even further, doubting even the existence of Muhammad.” (The Jerusalem Post, 5/12/2000)

“Western European societies are unprepared for the massive immigration of brown-skinned peoples cooking strange foods and maintaining different standards of hygiene…All immigrants bring exotic customs and attitudes, but Muslim customs are more troublesome than most.” (National Review, 11/19/90)

“as the population of Muslims in the United States grows, so does antisemitism.” (“The New Anti-Semitism,” http://freeman.io.com/m_online/jan98/pipes.htm)

“Iranians and Pakistanis, to take two groups of non-Arabs, are at least as widely conspiracy-minded and as anti-Semitic as, say, Tunisians and Kuwaitis.” (Commentary, 9/1/99)

“…black converts tend to hold vehemently anti-American, anti-Christian, and anti-Semitic attitudes.” (Commentary, 6/1/2000)

“‘It seems well worth it in order to keep would-be terrorists off guard,’ said Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum, a think tank. He defended the close monitoring of Arab passengers, arguing that ‘the record shows over the last generation that the great acts of violence are coming from the Middle East…'” (The Baltimore Sun, 11/24/1999, Page 1A)

Bigot Resume:

  • Launched Campus Watch, a Web site that included “dossiers” on professors and academic institutions thought to be too critical of Israel or too sympathetic to Islam and Muslims.
  • Advocated the unrestricted profiling of Muslims and Arabs.
  • Declared that 10 to 15 percent of all Muslims are “potential killers.”
  • Recommended the “vigilant application of social and political pressure to ensure that Islam is not accorded special status of any kind in this country.”
  • In The Weekly Standard (1/22/96), Pipes offered a glowing review of the infamous anti-Muslim book “Why I Am Not a Muslim.” The National Catholic Reporter (11/17/95) called that book “the literary equivalent of hate radio…literary warfare against Islam,” useful only to those “interested in returning to the polemical past to do battle with Islamic believers.” Pipes called the book “quite brilliant” and “startlingly novel.” “This religion would seem to have nothing functional to offer,” remarked Pipes.

Famous Bigot Quotes:

“Osama [bin Laden]’s use of these and other [Koranic] passages in his messages is consistent … with traditional understanding of the Quran. When modern-day Jews and Christians read their Bibles, they simply don’t interpret the passages cited as exhorting them to violent actions against unbelievers. This is due to the influence of centuries of interpretative traditions that have moved them away from literalism regarding these passages. But in Islam, there is no comparable interpretative tradition.”
— From The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades), 2005

“Where is moderate Islam? How can moderate Muslims refute the radical exegesis of the Qur’an and Sunnah? If an exposition of moderate Islam does not address or answer radical exegeses, is it really of any value to quash Islamic extremism? If the answer lies in a simple rejection of Qur’anic literalism, how can non-literalists make that rejection stick, and keep their children from being recruited by jihadists by means of literalism? Of course, as I have pointed out many times, traditional Islam itself is not moderate or peaceful. It is the only major world religion with a developed doctrine and tradition of warfare against unbelievers.”
— Jihad Watch, Jan. 14, 2006
