CNN commentator Fareed Zakaria responds to Glenn Beck.

An off handed comment by Glenn Beck is scorching the Internet. Glenn said that he believed 10% of the Muslims in the world are terrorists and his remark has greatly upset Islamist apologists everywhere. Now, a commentator working for CNN named Fareed Zakaria has responded in defense of all fellow Muslims with this astounding reply reported on Stu Blog.
“And this guy (Beck) cited some polls to support the claim that many in the Muslim world don’t like us and wish us harm. Uhh, yes, many of us have been pointing that out for over a decade now … But hating America is not the same thing as being a terrorist.

“Believe me, if we had one hundred and fifty seven million Muslim terrorists active across the world, we would be hearing more about it.”
Well, 157 million Muslims does represent 10% of the world’s Muslim population but to hear Mr. Zakaria say that if that many were terrorists “we would be hearing more about it” does force you to try to recall when and where you did hear about it.  Because, what you see, hear and read in the news depends on where you look. If you get all your news from the leftist mainstream news media in the United States you only get a slanted anti-American version of the truth and only the parts of the news they want you to see. If you have expanded your view of world events by reading any of the hundreds of blogs and independent news sources such as Jihad Watch, The Investigative Project on Terrorism, Bare Naked Islam or The Religion of Peace you find that news sources in foreign newspapers are talking about it and these blogs are linking the sources. The straight-talking Religion of Peace web blog even carries the banner: "islam: the Religion of Peace (and a big stack of dead bodies)" to prove it.

As far as that web site goes, as of this writing the web site Religion of Peace has documented 16,510 deadly attacks by Islamic Terrorists just since 9-11-2001. There is a counter in the left hand margin of my blog that keeps up to date numbers. How many of these attacks do you recall reading about in your daily newspaper or heard on your favorite network news shows? The Shoe Bomber, The Christmas Bomber, The Times Square Bomber, Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan - the Fort Hood, TX mass murderer, The Portland, Oregon tree lighting bomber. Yeah, those were the big ones. You could probably count all of them on one or both hands.
Yes, Mr. Zakaria, we have heard about it. Unfortunately, you must have been talking about your audience on CNN, because they probably haven't heard about.
