The Kaufmans will receive the
Community Service Award at the
dinner. Dr. Kaufman says his family
was "adopted" by Bais Chabad. "It's
like a big family there. We share
simchahs [joyous occasions] and are
there for each other in bad times,
too."
A retired ophthalmologist, Dr.

Israel Fund, the Yesha Heartland
Campaign and the Committee on
Accuracy in Middle East Reporting.

_ "I love the Orthodoxy," he says.
"I feel like I'm going back to my
roots."

"I think [my arguments] are care-
fully reasoned, and I hope they pay
attention to them."
Pipes, who regularly visits
Detroit, dismisses any thoughts
that criticism is having success in
obscuring his message.
"I am hardly marginalized," he
insists.
"Yesterday, I spoke to the
Christian Coalition. Today, I spoke
to the [Turkish-American] Ataturk
Society and a Jewish group, and I
spoke to a Hindu group. I think
I've got all the religions covered. I
speak to many business groups.
"People are interested, people are
worried, people are grappling with
the issues — and I hope the contri-
bution I'm making is important."

"It is mainly a right-left divide,
and as Ann Coulter [author of
Slander: Liberal Lies About the
American Right] calls it — it is pri-
marily slander," he says.
"They call names, make ad horn-
onym attacks, and charge calumny
rather than arguing the issues. But
besides the left, it comes from the
anti-Israeli groups and the
Islamists."
But in the face of what he con-
siders slander, Pipes is not slowing
down or becoming battle shy. His
persistence is based on his belief in
his positions and his confidence in
those who listen.
"I count on a sophisticated pub-
lic to be looking at all the sides and
to listen to my arguments," he says.
