Brigitte goes on CNN and gets schooled by a Muslim.
Early interview with my Friend Brigitte Gabriel at Duke:
I posted her vids as early as 2004/5

The problem here is the use/meaning of 'radical'.
Certainly 25% of Muslims aren't "terrorists" .. the old strawman we see in this string and in the rigged youngturk youtube in the post above mine.
Terrorists would be under 1%.
But how many are Fundamentalist? Literalist? Is that "radical?
If we use those terms the way we use it on Christians it would be a healthy Majority.
The same healthy Majority that supports Sharia worldwide and elected the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, with the more "Radical" Salafis second. Between them 70%.
Salafis, Coincidentally (Not), won 25% in 'moderate' Egypt!
Do you consider the MB "radical"? Salafis?
So her claim is Not at all off base.
Many Muslims and Muslim govts financially support terrorists radicals: Saudi, Pakistan, Hamas charities, etc.
Christians are persecuted and Cleansed in Most Muslim countries by their peoples AND Governments.
So 'radical'? Would you call Falwell/Robertson Radical? Because I would say about 2/3++ of Muslims are at least that 'radical'.
Then, of course, you have the problem of Literal or Radical to What?
Being Literal to the NT would cause what counterproductive behavior exactly? Teaching creationism instead of evolution?
Being literal to the Koran, OTOH, has many Violent repercussions we do see worldwide.
People die Every day in the NAME of Islam/it's scripture.
What would Falwell proscribe for Adultery, Counseling? While a Majority of Muslims support Stoning to Death for Adultery as prescribed by Sharia.
A Christian Fundamentalist is a missionary, a Muslim Fundamentalist Kills him.

No it doesn't, because regardless of her cited statistic, which was not correct, the religion of those who identify with radical Islam is not relevant. How many Americans would support war in the name of "Judeo-Christian values?" You and I both know that answer would be a significant amount of them.If my math is correct thats still something like 120 million. Meaning its a effing huge number, which still makes her case.
I posted something that was incorrect. It was late at night, and I probably shouldn't have been trying to debate that late in the first place. I apologize. Is that what you were looking for?And you owned the ME comment until you started dancing about the number including those elsewhere in asia, which is NOT what you said.
Be up front, theres no need to hide, though liberals never seem to want to do that.

On that you are correct, mea culpa.I think you meant Palestinian Muslims.
Sort of - they are opposed to suicide bombing targeting fellow civilians and particularly fellow Muslims (that's a big divide within the Islamist community).89% of Pakistani Muslims were opposed to suicide-bombing.
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.In addition, 64% of Palestinians said they were concerned about Islamic extremism, according to the poll, which conflicts with the question about suicide-bombers.
