Stanley Kurtz in National Review

Stanley Kurtz in National Review Online reports that Daniel Pipes has recently been “disinvited” from two important speaking engagements at American universities. Kurtz notes that Pipes is a leading expert on terrorism and the Middle East, and one of the very few such experts who warned of the danger posed by Islamism prior to September 11. I would suggest that, in addition, he is one of the few such experts who fully appreciates the danger posed by Islamism after September 11. This explains why he is being blackballed. Unless one wants to accept the Orwellian explanation of those who have revoked Pipes’ speaking invitiations — that Pipes practices McCarthyism.
