There is one thing that I find very curious lately and that is how the media rushes to the defense of Islam despite the entire world witnessing the violence perpetrated by Muslims. It’s understandable why Barack Obama does it and John Kerry as well. Barack is a certified Muslim and Mr. Kerry is an exploiter of Islam and the violence committed by Muslims for his global aspirations.
I read an article which claims to make the “perfect response” to people “who say all Muslims are violent.” (of course there is no one who makes that claim … but that’s typical of liberal “news” sites.)
Over at Vox.com a tweet, by Libyan-American Hend Amry said …
5 of the last 12 Nobel Peace Prize winners were Muslim. So according to Bill Maher, we’re all Peace Prize winners!
That statement isn’t that accurate. The guy left out Barack Obama, but I can understand why … awarding Obama the Nobel Peace Prize was a slap in the face to all the deserving folks who have actually contributed to people other than themselves, which Obama can’t even imagine, but I digress.
In the piece at Vox the writer mentioned that Islam has 1.6 BILLION followers which is around 20% of the world’s population. If we can still view the Nobel Peace Prize as legitimate (after Obama’s award) let’s compare the Muslim recipients to those of, say the Jewish Peace Prize winners.
Jews make up about 0.2% of the world’s population.
Okay, according to Wikipedia, there have been eleven Nobel Peace Prizes awarded to Muslims. Seven for their work towards peace and/or rights for women. Two in literature. One in physics and one in chemistry.
Using the same souce, Wikipedia …
Nobel Prizes have been awarded to over 850 individuals, of whom at least 20% were Jews, although Jews comprise less than 0.2% of the world’s population (or 1 in every 500 people). Overall, Jews have won a total of 41% of all the Nobel Prizes in economics, 28% of medicine, 26% of Physics, 19% of Chemistry, 13% of Literature and 9% of all peace awards.
Jews have been recipients of all six awards.
20% of 850 awards is about 170 … 170 for the Jews … 11 for the Muslims. There are 1.6 BILLION Muslims. So, what percent of the 1.6 are violent and/or willing to blow themselves up in the name of Islam. That’s an impossible question to answer accurately. 20%? 10%? 5%? 1% … how about if we say that just 1/2 of 1% are violent jihadists plotting the destruction of the Jews and the Great Satan, America …
That folks = about eight (8) MILLION jihadists. If even half of that … four MILLION. It doesn’t take a large percentage of 1.6 BILLION people to pose a serious threat to the world. There are 190 countries in the world. If the four million jihadists were evenly divided amongst the 190, that would provide over 21,000 to each …
I rest my case.
