On August 14, 2003 The Associated Press reported that "a broad array of Arab, religious and Muslim groups Thursday denounced the expected appointment of outspoken Middle East scholar Daniel Pipes to a federally funded peace think tank... The groups slammed Pipes as a racist, anti-Islam extremist whose appointment to the U.S. Institute of Peace would be akin to naming former Ku Klux Klan figure David Duke to a civil liberties post. And they vowed to strike back at President Bush on Election Day if he goes ahead with the appointment."
