    I support Islam n that fact that Working Women are a Deleterious Element on Society, in the form of Society/Family unit (more the later) in general extent.

    A maid, despite the foolish Economic Justification, does not equate to the Love nor Attention nor Airt of a Mother.

    Okay, so let's assume that one polling source is 100% correct. 13% said they have favorable opinions of Al Qaeda. That's nowhere near what the video stated.

    On that you are correct, mea culpa.



    Sort of - they are opposed to suicide bombing targeting fellow civilians and particularly fellow Muslims (that's a big divide within the Islamist community).

    But when there is an election, it is the Islamists who win.

    The ability of people to simultaneously depend on people who worry us shouldn't be that surprising. See: US foreign policy towards Iranian Qods Forces, in Iraq v. everywhere else.
    What is that supposed to mean? A Muslim winning an election in Pakistan is just as likely as a Christian winning an election here. And in the last general election, the winning party was the fiscal conservative, right-wing, "pro-American" party.

    Very sharp. But I also included several polls. You DID see those, didn't you?

    Tangentially as of now, 88% of those who voted say they agree with her. How bout them apples?

    Yes. #IAmThe12Percent :P

    21 people on the internet agree with you. Good job.

    And back to the original point, the fact that poll results were displayed via video does not invalidate the poll.

    Not with me-with the point of the woman in the video. When its stated so clearly its easy to see why radical islam must be stopped.
    It would take you 4 seconds to post the poll results that are covered in the video. Why would you pick this hill to make a stand?

    I could say the same to you. As I already said, the poll results are presented in the video, in which it is stated that 93% of Muslims did not identify as radicals. But since you want to ignore that, let's look at the poll posted by cpwill earlier in the thread:

    Muslim Publics Share Concerns about Extremist Groups | Pew Research Center's Global Attitudes Project

    13% have a favorable opinion of Al Qaeda, according to this poll. That's nowhere near what was suggested by the woman in the video. And the vast majority of respondents who have a favorable opinion of Al Qaeda aren't going to take violent action to prove their point.

    I of course assume you compared the SPECIFIC question asked in both polls, and also assured an identical population was sampled. Kindly post that info so you can demonstrate you are comparing apples to apples here. I will wait.

    What point are you trying to make? The two polls I cited were from different sources, so of course the population sampled was not identical. We have no idea which poll the lady in the video was citing (she could've just pulled it out of thin air), so there's no way of comparing that either. This argument is becoming frivolous, so please address something other than the validity of the poll, which was originally cited on this thread by a conservative, mind you.

    YOU made the comment that her findings were inaccurate. Prove it.
    My point is if they aren't directly comparable then hanging your hat on the poll results being inaccurate (or her comments to such) isn't credible.

    Tell you what, why dont you just post what the actual questions were, so we can see how similar they are. For now lets forget about the sample size and population.

    If you cant do the above, what you are really saying is you cant MAKE the argument that her figures are inaccurate. Now, frankly, whichever poll you go with the answers are going to be horrifying to westerners. You know what, but your liberalism compels you to believe some other explanation MUST be the cause.


    Im reminded of the story of the liberal who goes to the dentist, and is told he has a bad tooth, to which the liberal replies "yeah, but they arent ALL bad".

    I already did. Again, read the results of this poll:
    Muslim Publics Share Concerns about Extremist Groups | Pew Research Center's Global Attitudes Project

    Tell you what, why dont you just post what the actual questions were, so we can see how similar they are. For now lets forget about the sample size and population.
    "Do you have a favorable or unfavorable view of Al Qaeda?" Again, read the poll that I have already posted. And again, she didn't cite any polls. She pulled the number out of thin air, and I welcome you to try to find a source that backs her up, but, and I cannot emphasize this any more, as we have been stuck on this point for far too long, she did not cite any polls.

    If you cant do the above, what you are really saying is you cant MAKE the argument that her figures are inaccurate. Now, frankly, whichever poll you go with the answers are going to be horrifying to westerners. You know what, but your liberalism compels you to believe some other explanation MUST be the cause.
    Read the first part of my post. There is no poll to compare to, because she didn't cite one. And furthermore, I'm not a liberal. Other ideologies than liberalism reject islamophobia.

    Im reminded of the story of the liberal who goes to the dentist, and is told he has a bad tooth, to which the liberal replies "yeah, but they arent ALL bad".
    Bad anecdote is bad. Move on.
