A few days ago on Fareed Zakaria’s show, President Obama rejected the idea that we are at war with radical Islam.
“I reject a notion that somehow that creates a religious war because the overwhelming majority of Muslims reject that interpretation of Islam. They don’t even recognize it as being Islam, and I think that for us to be successful in fighting this scourge, it’s very important for us to align ourselves with the 99.9 percent of Muslims who are looking for the same thing we’re looking for — order, peace, prosperity.”
Best guess puts the number of Muslims sympathetic to the goals and means of Islamic terrorists at 200 million out of a total of 1.7 billion Muslims world-wide. That’s nearly 12%, not .01%.
By way of comparison, of the approximately 66 million Germans at the beginning of World War II, some 850,000 were card-carrying Nazis. Those card-carrying Nazis were .01% of the German population and look what they managed to do to the order, peace and prosperity of the world.
