This was a meeting on the US governments response to what happened at Bengazi, a US muslim ask's a non relevant question and gets her a$$ handed to her! I am not anti-islam but I do agree with the response!

Your thoughts and comments are appreciated.....

My thoughts on this are, "Huh?"

I guess that would be my comment as well. Can you provide a link?

Ah....I see you fixed it.

Oops...never mind, you didn't. It just goes to the YT main page.

Can you provide a summary?

The second attempt goes to nothing you refer too. When you paste a YT vid, copy and paste everything past the = mark into the YT drop box. That should put the video up.

Well, she's right. (My personal opinion.) I liked her response, it seemed clear to me.
That law student got her answer alright.

The woman asking the question (and making a statement as well) would fit right in here at ATS. Many posters cannot seem to address original post topics and try to deflect using emotion.

But I also think the the lady on the panel addressed it quite well.

That is exactly what I did, I am not sure why it did not work but at least Kandasky has a link working now!

300 Million Extremist Muslims. The 75% of Muslims who are moderate become irrelevant. The 300 Million can inflict heavy damage on the world. Yeah ... she got it right. It's something to be concerned about. And she backed it up with a whole lot of history of this happening in other cultures ... like Japan World War II and the Russians etc etc ....

What was the question and what was the answer? I can't watch it due to not wanting to wake up people sleeping nearby.

The question was more of a statement: You cannot fight against ideas with weapons. (Think V for Vendetta - the whole concept of the movie was about sparking an idealogical change.) Further, if you try to take out the 20%, or whatever the number is/was, it will only convert more of the 80% because it will appear to the 80% that the 20% were correct. Not only that, but the 20% are family and loved ones to the 80%, whom will be vindictive unless you change their ideology.

When we were dropping bombs on Iraqi heads, the peaceful majority were irrelevant.

When we drone funerals and wedding in Afghanistan, the peaceful majority were irrelevant.

Now that all the countries we have destroyed over the past decade are riddled with Extremists, the peaceful majority are irrelevant.

How can you talk about Benghazi and not mention Muslims? Without talking about Muslims then the conversation would be a short one. Four people died and America did nothing that's about it. The Heritage Foundation is nothing but warmongering scum that has been proven wrong time and time again like on Iraq. All they do is the same thing which is cry they want to destroy us when they have said "we want you out of our country". Instead of her asking this woman why doesn't the moderate Muslims speak out why doesn't she ask the MSM why don't you show it. Many Muslims have spoken out against terrorism but no one airs it. So she didn't hand this girl her ass she just showed herself to be nothing but a propaganda machine.

I don't get it. She never answered the question, just rips the questioner. Her history lesson answered the question not at all.

I sure don't see the thread title as accurate but others mileage may vary. I'll just chalk this one up in the "whatever" category.

300 million extremist I would love to see proof of that. If there were 300 million of them they could basically take over any nation they wanted. The Heritage Foundation just pulls facts out of their ass.

I recommend you come back to this thread and watch the video when you are able.

Paraphrasing heavily here:
The question was: Waaahhhh ... why are you picking on all Muslims when the majority are peaceful?
The response was: Because the peaceful percentage is irrelevant, just like the peaceful Germans were irrelevant when the Nazis were in the lead. The peaceful majority of Russians were irrelevant when the Communists killed millions. Etc.

The answer's delivery was worth the watch ... no doubt.

ETA: Oh yeah, she said to heck with political correctness there at the end.

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 ideology.

The questioner also made a statement about how all Muslims are portrayed as "bad", and I think that's all the panelist heard.

I believe it's simple geographies and economy. They are scattered and don't have a unified economy. Not to mention the in-fighting among themselves.

If Islam were to fix all five of those problems, I believe that the world would be in for a world of hurt.

While the extremists may be few in number, they command a healthy fear among many.
