    Yes indeed. That's clearly Geller's intent.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    The moral of all this is don't mess with Obama's faith.
    Did Obama specifically condemn this event?

    You simply cannot be taken seriously. You make EVERYTHING 100% about Obama. Worst case of ODS on the forum.

    Since 2001, jihadists have killed 13 people on US soil. Right wing extremists have killed 34. Exactly zero jihadists aquired or used chemical or biological weapons compared to 13 right wing terrorists, one left wing terrorist, and two with idiosyncratic beliefs.

    Frazier Glenn Cross killed three people at two Jewish centers in 2014. He founded the Carolina Knights of the KKK and the White Patriot Party.
    Wade Michael Page killed six people at a Sikh temple in 2012, twice the death toll of the Boston Marathon bombings. He was in a white supremacist band.
    Shawna Forde, Albert Gaxiola, and Jason Bush raided a home in Arizona in 2009, killing two in an effort to fund their anti-immigration vigilante group, Minutemen American Defense.
    In 2009 Scot Roeder murdered Dr. George Tiller. Scott Roeder also had ties to the Sovereign Citizens.


    And many many more...
    I'm not saying that jihadists aren't a threat, but in order of danger it goes something like this : Right Wing Terrorists > Unaffiliated Terrorists > Left Wing Terrorists > Islamic Terrorists.

    This is something everyone interested in censorship and violence should read, absorb, and try to understand. Understand also this is not about me.

    It is most important to keep on challenging these would-be censors, so that people with Kalashnikov rifles do not make our customs and laws.

    One of the false presumptions of our time is that people on the political left are motivated by good intentions even when they do bad things, while people on the political right are motivated by bad intentions even when they do good things.

    When people prefer to focus on the motives of the victims rather than on the motives of the attackers, they will ignore the single most important matter: that an art exhibition, or free speech, has been targeted.

    It does not matter if you are right-wing or left-wing, or American, Danish, Dutch, Belgian or French. These particularities may matter greatly and be endlessly interesting to people in the countries in question. But they matter not a jot to ISIS or their fellow-travellers. What these people are trying to do is to enforce Islamic blasphemy laws across the entire world. That is all that matters.

    There's a lot of folks being shouted down being called bigots when they hold different views from others. A tactic used to attempt to silence them. And it is working quite well because more and more folks are becoming timid and apprehensive to say what they truly believe because of the repercussions that may follow.

Compare that to ~30% Right Wing Conservatives. So even if a Muslim is 10x more likely to be a terrorist than a right winger, there would still be 3x as many right wing terrorists.
