    Why not. The KKK is an extreme organization which preaches hate and intolerance and have in the past acted violently aginst those who they hate. Are you claiming that Islamic extremist do not compare?

    Now. Where's that 15 million figure coming from?
    Most estimates place the percentage of the worlds 1.5 billion muslims who are radicalized to be approximately 1%. That is 15 million muslims who believe that it is their duty to wage jihad for Allahs cause against the kafir.

    Thin air, in other words.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Source?

    Half of that 1.5 billion are females. I know there have been some female terrorists, but that is only a small minority. That would leave 750 million potential terrorists. Where you got the 1% estimate from... I couldn't even find a source that put it over .25%.

    If you are going to use "hate and intolerance" as a criteria for comparison, then you can compare Islamic Extremism to the Assyrians. You can compare Scythian nomads to Tamil Tigers. Hate and intolerance is not unique it doesn't nothing but superficially describe; there is no substance there.

    Most estimates place the percentage of the worlds 1.5 billion muslims who are radicalized to be approximately 1%. That is 15 million muslims who believe that it is their duty to wage jihad for Allahs cause against the kafir.
    No. 1% would be the amount considered to be Isalmists. I would say that you could probably get away with circa 2 million-3 million to militant Islamists.

    Out of the M.A.K that was established by Usama Bin Laden, al-Zawahiri, and Abdullah Azzam, only one of them was militant in nature. One of them was persuaded to, and the other one was assassinated for his defiance.

    In the case of adultery, for example, a Muslim man who is convicted of committing adultery with a Muslim woman receives 100 lashes; the sentence for a non-Muslim man convicted of adultery with a Muslim woman is death.

    So dont tell me they are protected minorities and are free because thats a liberal LIE.
    Fair enough. I thought we were sticking to the constitutionally protected and recognized religious minorities. You are right that all others, especially the Bahai, have been persecuted for decades.

    Iran being an Islamic state the chances of a Jew becoming the PM are about as hight as the chances of a Muslim becoming the PM of the Jewish state of Israel.

    Sounds to me like you just spoiled the plot for the next Dan Brown book.
