All Terrorists are Muslims…Except the 94% that Aren’t

Who are the terrorists? Who are the terrorists?

"A lie can make it half way around the world before the truth has time to put its boots on." Mark Twain

Let me bring a bit of the present day to Mark Twain's words with the addition of the old American proverb, "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." 

Are we being fooled twice?  Let me give an example.

In hindsight many people agree that as General Hugh Shelton said in his new book, we were lied into the war with Iraq.  Are we already believing two lies essential to being fooled twice?

Did Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad say he was going to wipe Israel off the map?  Here's a New York times article that might make you wonder.

Just How Far Did They Go, Those Words Against Israel?
But is that what Mr. Ahmadinejad said? And if so, was it a threat of war? For months, a debate among Iran specialists over both questions has been intensifying. It starts as a dispute over translating Persian but quickly turns on whether the United States (with help from Israel) is doing to Iran what some believe it did to Iraq — building a case for military action predicated on a faulty premise.

"Ahmadinejad did not say he was going to wipe Israel off the map because no such idiom exists in Persian," remarked Juan Cole, a Middle East specialist at the University of Michigan and critic of American policy who has argued that the Iranian president was misquoted. "He did say he hoped its regime, i.e., a Jewish-Zionist state occupying Jerusalem, would collapse." Since Iran has not "attacked another country aggressively for over a century," he said in an e-mail exchange, "I smell the whiff of war propaganda."

Then there's the next lie that "Not all Muslims are terrorists but all terrorists are Muslims"  Again we see how far and fast a lie can go while the truth barely gets started. 

According to the FBI and a study released by Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill there are more Jewish terrorists than Muslim.  And a more accurate statement would be the title of this following article, and I encourage you to read it -- lest the people of the United States be labeled fools:
