    And yes, I agree with her. Unless the peaceful muslims stand up to the radical muslims and force them to stop their jihads the peaceful part of the population is irrelevent. And this includes any race, creed, ideology and any other name/designation you can come up with.


    The problem with that is that the peaceful Muslims are just as terrified of the radical Islamists as everybody else...

    Your mistake is focusing merely on the percentage, as if thats central to the argument. There are 1.6 billion muslims in the world. Even a small percentage would be a huge number, and that was her point.

    Moderate vs. Extremist Views in the Muslim World



    Unfortunately, radical Islamists exist all over the world, not just in the middle east...

    True, maybe more so, because they live amongst these radicals. Whats happening RIGHT NOW, across huge portions of western Iraq, is these radicals are being "cheered" as they roll into town. And within a few days, there are punishments for smoking or listening to popular music. All the while, any civilians who cooperated with the Iraq govt are being publically executed. Anyone seen as being friendly with westerners or sunnis are executed. Any ancient mosques or historical sites are being blown up. This is what they want to do to the world-and they SAY THAT.

    It's a little hard to take someone's argument seriously when they grossly exaggerate their statistics.

    True, but I don't think anyone has actually done a worldwide poll. The majority of Muslims live in the Middle East so that's likely going to be the most accurate statistic you're going to get.

    Perhaps you mean its a convenient excuse for yourself. Her point was that its a HUGE NUMBER of people who support radical islam, and she's right. This was her point, and I think you know that.

    Wrong, the majority of Muslims DO NOT live in the middle east. The largest population is in south east asia, and less than 20% live in the ME.

    The question was whether or not I agree with her. I don't, because she uses false statistics to make her point. I agree that there is an existence of radical Islam that has been provoked by American aggression and intervention in the Middle East.

    Yikes, I've been slipping up on stuff like that way too much on stuff like that tonight. :P Most Muslims live in Asia, however, and Southeast Asian nations were included in the poll, so the point still stands.

    So since you disagree with her number, kindly show us your data. After you have done that explain how the difference is significant.


    And sorry, southeast asia IS NOT the middle east. Own it. Theres no need to be slippery just admit it.

    I already did. Watch the video in the link I originally posted. 7%=/=25%. And furthermore, her claim here is based off of the fact that the religion of extremist groups is at all relevant. It's not. When someone murders someone, we don't legislate the punishment based on their intent; we legislate based on what they did, so that sort of policy doesn't differ when someone who is willing to use violence comes from a sort religion. I fail to see how the existence of extremist groups makes Islam as a religion a problem at all.

    And sorry, southeast asia IS NOT the middle east. Own it. Theres no need to be slippery just admit it.
    I was under the impression that I already did.
