Does Islam encourage violence? That is the question. Monday, an article ran at Huffington Post suggesting that majority of terrorists have no tie to Islam and therefore the conclusion can be made that Islam does not encourage violence.
Saudi-born writer, Hanzala Bin Aman authored the Huff Post article entitled, “Is Islam Really the Religion of Violence? Here Are the Facts” utilizing FBI data to garner stats to support his thesis taht only a small percentage of all terrorist acts are done by Islamic terrorists and thus should not be a “source of particular concern”.
Aman asserts that just that nothing more than 6% of all the terrorist attacks, between 1980 to 2012 were committed by Muslims, on U.S. soil. This selective picking leaves out the fact that 94% of deaths, due to terrorism here in the U.S. during this period were indeed carried out by Islamic terrorists. The FBI data that Aman looked at included “amateurish acts of terror” that produced very little terror and took no lives, and therefore considered ineffective, yet the many Muslim attacks, such as 9/11, obviously were catastrophic.
The evidence mounts on page two, debunking Aman's thesis.
Cheryl Brackin Except none of that is what is said in it. Ooops, you didn’t read it did you? Must get your info from Truth and action huh?
Islam is a “cult” under a guise of “religion”!
Religion of dumbfuks
Gee, ya think???
Have not seen any proof of otherwise!
This proves that the HP. Is as evil as the cult.
Look at the Middle East Europe ! Look at the Koran read it! The only religion that supports pedophilia, rape, murder, lying duh!
I haven’t seen yet, may have missed it, but has anyone mentioned about it and why all of ISIS members are wearing masks. Could it be because they don’t wnad to be regonised by those from theri own countries. Oh , now you know that there are some from America in this group that wants to destroy the rest of us. Don’t be fooled. To many are far to tall to be of that region over there. Some even look like they are body builders. JUst asking questions, is this Obama’s new army to unleash on America. I hope its nothing like that. It really looks that the final solution ? is here. THE DESTRUCTION OF ALL MANKIND.
