Q

trryfa asked:

You say people have preset ideas about Muslims, what we can't figure out is how these radicals were supposed to be raised by good people , why then when they raised these radicals and they know who and what the radicals are but won't tell us so we can stop their killing of our people , why should we believe there is such a thing as a good Muslim?

A

Not that you haven’t laid out a sophisticated argument here, but most people don’t kill other people–whether they’re Muslim or Christian or worship the sun or any other thing.

But so you don’t have to settle for a squishy hippie answer, here’s a mathematical one: there are a billion Muslims in the world. If even a significant number of them were actively engaged in the killing of non-Muslims, there wouldn’t be too many non-Muslims left.

And yet, here we are.
