Fareed Zakaria on Maher and Harris
Recall the recent Real Time episode that caused such a stir. Zakaria agrees in part and disagrees in part with Maher and Harris. He disagrees in that he thinks they blame all of Islam for the behavior of a few. Yet that stats he cites belie that it is just a few. For example, 7 of the top 10 terrorist groups are Muslim. Of the 24 most restrictive countries on freedom of religion, 19 are Muslim majority. Of the 21 countries that have laws against apostasy, all are Muslim majority. This is not a 'minority' of Muslims by any stretch. In trying to counter Maher and Harris he ends up proving them accurate.
