Hah you tell em Whoopi! Someone ought to set this dodo straight, so it might as well be you.
Truth is, we have a Bill O'Reilly problem in the world! Unfortunately there's seems to be a pandemic of ignorance like his going on around the world and the worst part about it is, it's intentional and by design. Can't get any worse than that.
To be honest, O'Reilly used to sound somewhat intelligent at one time....a long long time ago. Then he morphed into this arrogant, annoying, uncivilized talking head, who clearly enjoys his gift of blab as a professional bigot/agitator, with little or no substance at all.
It is unfair and a grave injustice to Muslims all over the world to attribute terror attacks committed in conflict zones due to political upheaval, such as Israel/Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and various other areas around the world as Islamic Terror, not to mention the fact that in those conflict zones, the overwhelming majority of the victims are Muslims themselves.
When terror attacks in the name of Islam are committed elsewhere in the world, then by all means yes, classify them as Islamic terror. But even then, when you look at the facts from various sources, Islamic terror hardly stacks up against various other extremist terror groups, which are often homegrown nonetheless.
Leave it to the media to shift blame. When a Muslim commits a crime they never fail to mention his religion and/or ethinc origin on the front page news. When others commit a crime, oh well, it's just another statistic, no ethnic or religious sterotyping, plus they'll be lucky to make the news, let alone the front page.
If we really want to solve the problem, let's concentrate on the bad guys and stop alienation of all Muslims based on the actions of the few.
Alright, now let's take a look at a sampling of how Islamic Terror stacks up against the rest here in the USA and in Europe. Click on the links for specifics.
