THIS. MOTHERFREAKING THIS.
Excuse me as I causally anonymously mail this to all my relatives’ homes
AMEN TO THIS!
While I appreciate that 10,000 Al Qaida members are a small percentage of Muslims worldwide, please remember that it only took only 19 to kill 3,000 Americans.
Okay, those are three numbers, but they’re not very valid because just because the actors are a small group, doesn’t mean they are the only one to blame. A relatively small number of people were in NAZI party, Gestapo an SS…but the whole country deserves some blame because while Hitler only got a plurality of votes, the whole nation sat back and let him act.(Yes there was a resistance but they were so small that they had no effect).
It’s alway more of a question of who supports evil, not how many actually carry it out.
So let’s look at some real numbers of support.
People-Press: 31% of Turks support suicide attacks against Westerners in Iraq.
YNet: One third of Palestinians (32%) supported the slaughter of a Jewish family, including the children:
World Public Opinion: 61% of Egyptians approve of attacks on Americans
32% of Indonesians approve of attacks on Americans
41% of Pakistanis approve of attacks on Americans
38% of Moroccans approve of attacks on Americans
83% of Palestinians approve of some or most groups that attack Americans (only 14% oppose)
62% of Jordanians approve of some or most groups that attack Americans (21% oppose)
42% of Turks approve of some or most groups that attack Americans (45% oppose)
A minority of Muslims disagreed entirely with terror attacks on Americans:
(Egypt 34%; Indonesia 45%; Pakistan 33%)
About half of those opposed to attacking Americans were sympathetic with al-Qaeda’s attitude toward the U.S.
Pew Research (2010): 55% of Jordanians have a positive view of Hezbollah
30% of Egyptians have a positive view of Hezbollah
45% of Nigerian Muslims have a positive view of Hezbollah (26% negative)
43% of Indonesians have a positive view of Hezbollah (30% negative)
Pew Research (2010): 15% of Indonesians believe suicide bombings are often or sometimes justified.
34% of Nigerian Muslims believe suicide bombings are often or sometimes justified.
Populus Poll (2006): 12% of young Muslims in Britain (and 12% overall) believe that suicide attacks against civilians in Britain can be justified. 1 in 4 support suicide attacks against British troops.
Pew Research (2007): 26% of younger Muslims in America believe suicide bombings are justified.
35% of young Muslims in Britain believe suicide bombings are justified.
42% of young Muslims in France believe suicide bombings are justified.
22% of young Muslims in Germany believe suicide bombings are justified.
29% of young Muslims in Spain believe suicide bombings are justified.
Pew Research (2011): 8% of Muslims in America believe suicide bombings are often or sometimes justified
28% of Egyptian Muslims believe suicide bombings are often or sometimes justified (38% never).
Pew Research (2007): Muslim-Americans who identify more strongly with their religion are three times more likely to feel that suicide bombings are justified
Federation of Student Islamic Societies: About 1 in 5 Muslim students in Britain (18%) would not report a fellow Muslim planning a terror attack.
The lowest numbers here are 8% of American Muslims believe suicide bombing justified. As all these polls show, 8% is low for much of the world…but let’s just say it’s only 8% of 1.57 billion (125.6 Million) who are so morally bereft they believe in targeting innocent civilians (not collateral damage but actually looking for non-military targets to massacre).
Please tell me with a straight face you think any other religion has even 8% of it’s population that says targeting the innocent is justified.
Excuse you that’s way better
Its a Trojan
Horsecooler. Coke is better than Pepsi in all ways.
"What would you like to drink?"
"We have Pepsi products"
Coke all the way. I actually didn’t drink any Pepsi products for like six years.
"Is Pepsi okay?"
"Only if I can pay with Monopoly money. You give me fake Coke, I’ll give you fake money."
i rest my case [x]
I agree there is something very wrong with you with you if you don’t like Love Actually
In the word of screenwriter Preston Sturges, “Love reformed her and corrupted him.” Remember the Night is an often forgotten Christmas film, which is a shame as movies with Barbara Stanwyck are alw…
Some gun owners in New York City have reportedly received notices in the mail from the NYPD to either surrender their rifle or shotgun that is capable of holding more than five rounds, or have the gun modified by a gunsmith to get into compliance with the law.
And there is only one ethical response to this thuggery:
And any Gestapo member that tries to enforce it will deserve whatever they get.
Eric Cantor on CNBC
saves the military, gets rid of the unemployment extension, no new taxes, reduces the deficit, has the start of long term fixes….
…I eagerly await the whining of populists who don’t seem to understand we only control one half of one third of the government….we’re not exactly in a position to dictate terms.
Cats have an off button? Why was I never informed of this?
