Muslims and Terror

Jerusalem Post columnist Martin Sherman has a particularly important essay about the links between Islam and terrorism.  The piece is important reading.  The gist: Muslims comprise only 20% of the world's population, yet Muslims are involved in far more than 20% of the world's terrorism, religious violence, and religious wars.  The disproportionate representation of Muslims in murderous terrorist rampages shows a causal relation between Islam and terrorism.

Sherman is right.  Think of 9-11, Madrid, Beslan, Mumbai, Westgate Mall, Charlie Hebdo, Jyllans-Posten, Al Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram, Al Shabab, the various Talibans, the religious wars in Syria and Iraq...there's no other contemporary religion with a record even remotely like this.  Certainly not all terrorists are Muslims, and most Muslims are not terrorists, but clearly something is desperately wrong with Islam.
