Subject: again, from D Pipes

Dear Professor Abou El Fadl:

I wrote you in early January 2004 but did not hear back from you. I am writing an article about you and would like to check two points with you.

A source quotes you stating that you found Noah Feldman unacceptable as legal advisor to the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq because he is Jewish. Any comment?

You stated to the 9/11 commission on 8 December 2003 that “Statistically, after the attacks of 9/11, Muslim and Arab terrorism was responsible for 2% of the sum total of terrorist incidents taking place in the United States.” Could you provide a source for this?

I'd appreciate hearing from you within the week. If I do not hear from you, I shall indicate that I wrote you repeatedly and did not receive a reply.

Yours sincerely,

Daniel Pipes
