"We're currently at various forms of war in five different Muslim countries, so it's not surprising that some of the violence directed at us is from Muslims. But to claim that '100 percent of attempted terrorist attacks on the U.S. (and [other than Spain], terrorists attacks on all Western nations)' since 1995 are by 'people claiming to act in the name of Islam' is so blatantly, demonstrably, obviously false that you really have to wonder about a person who utter such a thing."

Did I ever show you my victorian "French" stereographs from 1910?
