Paraphrased, the question was, "How can you fight an ideological war with weapons? The Muslim jihad is an ideology. How can you address it if you
don't address it ideologically"?
Paraphrased answer: "15-25% of Muslims are radical. That's equal to the population of the US. We understand that the majority are peaceful, but they
are irrelevant when talking about the 180-300 million people who are not. Most Germans were peaceful, but the radical minority killed 60 million
people." She went through several historical wars, showing that most of any enemy were peaceful, but that was irrelevant when looking at the actions
of the radical minority.
I agree with what the panelist said, but I don't see how it answered the question AT ALL...
The questioner had a very good point. Most Americans are peaceful, but a few went into Iraq and killed a hundred thousand, but didn't deal with the
ideology and the war is still going on. Same in Vietnam. We killed 1/5 of their population but "lost" the war because we didn't address the
The questioner also made a statement about how all Muslims are portrayed as "bad", and I think that's all the panelist heard.
