Obama Thinks 99.9% Of Muslims Moderate? Think Again

hahahaha ... Hey Barry, any Idea WHICH ONE of these 
Thousand Muslims isn't a Moderate? BETTER YET, 
President Obama might want to brush up on his facts before hosting next week's critical summit on "violent extremism." By claiming "99.9% of Muslims" are moderate and reject the radical tenets practiced by the Islamic State, he grossly underestimates the threat, including in America.
"The overwhelming majority of Muslims reject that interpretation of Islam," he recently told CNN's Fareed Zakaria. "It's very important for us to align ourselves with the 99.9% of Muslims who are looking for the same thing we're looking for — order, peace, prosperity."
While his remarks echo his earlier State of the Union speech, in which he said "the vast majority" of Muslims share Western values, this was the first time he has quantified the "extremist" threat. In his mind, only 0.1% of the world's 1.6 billion Muslims hold radical beliefs.
But taking into account scientific measurements of attitudes in the Muslim world, his estimate is foolishly low. For example, several recent Pew Research Center polls of Muslims in Muslim countries — as well as in America — show strong support for many of the extremist notions that Obama assumes they shun.
An alarming 26% of American Muslims ages 18 to 29 believe suicide bombings vs. non-Muslims "can be justified." That means our Muslim youth are just as radicalized as their counterparts in France, Germany and Britain.
"The higher levels of support for suicide bombing seen among young American Muslims resembles patterns found among Muslims in Europe," Pew said.
