Journalists Keeping Jihad In Perspective

Course Instructs Journalists to Take Note That Jihad 'Not a Leading Cause of Death'

A new online journalism course on Islam appears to downplay the threat posed by global jihad groups, suggesting reporters keep the death toll from Islamic terrorism in "context" by comparing that toll to the number of people killed every year by malaria, HIV/AIDS and other factors.


Hmm. Let's put Jihad in perspective, according to this site.

More people are killed by Islamists each year than in all 350 years of the Spanish Inquisition combined. (source)

Islamic terrorists murder more people every day than the Ku Klux Klan has in the last 50 years. (source)

More civilians were killed by Muslim extremists in two hours on September 11th than in the 36 years of sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland. (source)

19 Muslim hijackers killed more innocents in two hours on September 11th than the number of American criminals executed in the last 65 years. (source)

Finally, they want to divert attention away from jihad by focusing on how many people are killed by Malaria or HIV or other factors. What do you think the odds are that one of the other factors they would mention is the number of babies killed by abortion?

Not a chance in hell. In fact the chances of such is greater than winning the Power Ball Lottery if you don't buy a ticket.

The whitewash continues.

Ostriching never works because reality always comes around.

Dhimmitude. Ugh. I don't understand why we shouldn't want to show a belief system that wants us dead for what it is!

The website you referenced is one of my go-to sites for unsoftened news on the 'religion of peace.'

comparing jihadists to bacterias and viruses? WHAT?
Chuck, in the same vain as your last post, I posit: WHERE IS PETA? Are we daring to say that poor little bacterias and viral organisms are MEAN and go after people to KILL THEM?
you get my drift......ya, I know I sound insane; that's how nutty this whole thing's becoming.

I just wrote a comment at my top post that I feel islamists must be threatening lives or stories like your post here about Journalists "keeping Jihad in Perspective" just COULDN'T be's INSANE.
Who'd write these nutty things unless someone was forcing them to?

AOW, problem is it's the public that has their head in the sand

Brooke, my first time there. Good site

Z, PETA would be okay with the muzzies doing in a few humans
