    No, it's not reasonable, but if you're trying to rationalize an irrational fear of 24% of the global population, feel free to keep that to yourself.

    Re: Tillerson Out

    Every day I see news about some mosque in Iraq or Pakistan getting attacked by a suicide bomber, this is not at all unusual. People who have studied this tell us terrorist attacks in Muslim countries get a lot less coverage in western media, it's just not "news". The frequent terrorist attacks in Muslim countries are typically perpetrated by "suicide bombers" (jihadees) who wear the explosives they detonate in markets or mosques. There is a distinctly religious element to these frequent terrorist attacks in the Muslim world, the perpetrators are celebrated as "martyrs" of the jihad, they attack gatherings of Shia muslims. In 2015 four Islamic extremist groups were responsible for 74% of all deaths from terrorism: ISIS, Boko Haram, the Taliban and Al-Qaeda, according to the Global Terrorism Index 2016.
