A note on Pipes
In a December 2006 article, I said that a statement by Daniel Pipes warning about the danger of Muslim immigration in America that had appeared in his November 2001 Commentary article, “The Danger Within: Militant Islam in America,” was missing from the copy of the article at Pipes’s website. This was not correct. Pipes’s remark about Muslim immigration appeared, not in the November 2001 issue of Commentary, but the February 2002 issue, where Pipes responded to readers of the original article. I’ve added a correction to my December 2006 article straightening this out. However, as I also point out in the correction, it remains the case that Pipes, at least to my knowledge, has never repeated the grave warning about Muslim immigration that he issued in February 2002—nor, indeed, any criticism of Muslim immigration at all.
