Daniel Pipes vs Red Ken

When Ken Livingstone is not spending $70,000 of taxpayers' money in travel, and suing bloggers at taxpayers' expense, he gets into debates:

Gates of Vienna has a 7-part video, and posts,
Red Ken spoke first, and gave a very urbane speech about the need for multiculturalism and a coming together of different cultures to form a "world civilization". He referred repeatedly to the defects of the United States, and gave his opinion that the era of America as the premier global power is even now coming to an end.

Mr. Pipes expressed a strong disagreement with the mayor.

"The problem is not so much a clash of civilizations," he said, "but a clash between civilization and barbarism... The 'clash of civilizations' idea fails; it does not fit the facts; it is not a good way to understand the world." He went on to detail the dangers of the largest and most violent barbarism of all, radical Islam. He singled out Britain, and in particular London, as the world's principal haven for Islamic terrorists.
Watch all the videos.
