Ben Shapiro video: The Myth of the Tiny Radical Muslim Minority


Ben Shapiro, from Truth Revolt, cuts through the argument that it is only a tiny minority within Islam who holds extremist views. He made this video in October 2014, in response to the televised spat On October 3, 2014, between Ben Affleck, who angrily asserted that the vast majority of Muslims were peaceful, and Bill Maher and Sam Harris, who argued that liberals needed to stand up for liberal values when debating Islam.

Here, Ben Shapiro presents statistics which suggest that a strong proportion of Muslims around the world do not hold to moderate or liberal principles, but many actually have ‘positive feelings’ toward terrorist organisations, believe in the implementation of sharia law not only in their own country but around the world, and feel that honour killings are justified some of the time.

His interest in history was piqued by playing a flight simulator computer game about the Battle of Britain, and he hopes to one day siphon the earnings from his political writings into funding the greatest prog-rock concept album the world has ever seen.
