Daniel Pipes' attack on Israeli Arabs is baseless and inflammatory

Pipes has written an aggressive and confused jumble of half-truths and misunderstandings about the Arabs citizens of Israel in an article published in the Washington Times.
By Carl Perkal


Middle East expert Daniel Pipes was in Israel recently and subsequently published an article entitled “Israel’s Arabs, living a paradox” in the Washington Times. I don’t know Dr. Pipes personally, but I feel compelled to call him to task for his baseless and inflammatory attack on the Arab citizens of Israel.

I refer Pipes to a speech made by Yoram Cohen, the head of Israel’s Shin Bet internal security service in which he said, "…as a community, Arab Israelis are not a target of Shin Bet. They are not a fifth column and we do not view them as such…"

2. I am shocked, shocked I say!

 

Dr Pipes acts like an agenda-driven bigot? Unheard of. And to think there used to be some chumps around these parts that would peddle his stuff from time to time and expect to be taken seriously. Wasn't he part of some official government "Ministry of Peace" or some similarly orwellian-named monstrosity?

3. So what else is new?

Pipes has been slandering people for years. Like Dershowitz, he tries to get people fired from their jobs. He really is one of the more despicable people defending Israel.
