Last Monday, Glenn Beck, the rising religious voice of American conservatism, said 10 percent of Muslims are terrorist. Usually such talk is accepted by Muslim haters and ignored by the intellectual elite because of its stupidity.
But Fareed Zakaria, a Muslim scholar and commentator on CNN, didn’t let it go. Zakaria says there are 1.57 billion Muslims in the world. Ten percent is 157 million. That means Beck is saying there are 157 million Muslim terrorists in the world, when most experts say the percentage is really o.1 percent.
Watch Zakaria go after Beck’s comment here. It’s pretty entertaining.
