99.9% of Muslims are Peaceful, If You don't Count the 50% Who Are Not

So many people speak passionately about Muslims without knowing the least bit about them. President Obama said 99.9% of Muslims want the same things you and I do. Is he right? Turns out he is not even close.

I have been asking for data in order to understand what Muslims believe in relation to their numbers. I found it in the excellent video below.

Hard hitting 14 minute video below, narrated by Raheel Raza, herself a Muslim, dares to expose Muslim opinions and demographics. Is Obama right and 99.9% of Muslims are peaceful. This film exposes that strangling political correctness that prevents us from telling it like it is.

A glimpse at the numbers Ms Raza reveals:

1.6 billion Muslims

Violent Muslims:

40,000 - 200,000 are ISIS fighters, globally.

Hundreds of thousands (approx 300,000) are fighting for Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Al Nusra, Taliban, Hamas, MILF (Philippines), and other jihadist groups elsewhere in the world

There are twice as many British Muslims fighting for ISIS than enlisted in the British military

Muslims working toward a global caliphate through politics & culture:

Hamas supporters who voted them as government in Gaza

Muslim Brotherhood supporters globally, notably in Egypt where they were elected government. MB's stated goal is to establish a global caliphate.

CAIR - Council on American Islamic Relations - "Through media relations, lobbying, and education, CAIR promotes Islamic perspectives to the American public and promotes social and political activism among Muslims in America", Wikipedia.
CAIR was founded by the Muslim Brotherhood, a known terrorist supporting organization, and have their head office on Capital Hill, Washington, D.C. They also have influence at the highest level of the American government. They have many supporters, especially in American universities.
CAIR was named a terrorist group by the United Arab Emirates, but operates freely in the US.

Muslims who may or may not practice violence, but believe it is justified, fundamentalists:

In Muslim countries - 79-86% believe Muslims should be killed for leaving Islam

Globally - 27% believe Muslims should be killed for leaving Islam

Globally - 39% believe honor killing is justified (about 345,000,000)

In France - 42%; in Britain 35%, and in America 26% of young Muslims believe suicide bombing is justifiable.

Globally 53% of Muslims (including 40% of British students) are in favour of Sharia Law, ie stoning for adultery, whipping, cutting off hands, beheading, etc. Sharia,  In its strictest and most historically coherent definition, sharia is considered in Islam as the infallible law of God. Wikipedia. In Sharia, a woman, a Christian or a Jew is considered to be worth half of a Muslim male - both in testimony and in awards. 

Under Sharia, punishment for blasphemy against Islam, by Muslims and non-Muslims, range from imprisonment, fines, flogging, amputation, hanging, or beheading. In some cases, Sharia allows non-Muslims to escape death by converting and becoming a devout follower of Islam. One is better off dead!

So, many of these categories are overlapping so it is almost impossible to come up with a single number, or percentage of Muslims who can definitely be labelled, "not peaceful". But certainly, the number is between 27% and 53% and probably closer to the higher number. 

That's between 432,000,000 and 848,000,000 non-peaceful Muslims. And, it is safe to say that number is increasing every day. 

So Mr Obama, your 99.9% is wrong to the point of absurdity, if not downright hostile toward one's intelligence.
