Uhm, numbers don't lie, right?

And saying I'm using a broad brush to talk about broad brushes is pretty broad brushy.

It's honestly a great point, and it should be on repeat

When the overwhelmingly majority of Muslims are not extremists it makes no sense to point to Islam and not other factors that radicalize an individual

In the US Muslims are up there as the best assimilated minority group in the country

But it just makes it sound like you don't have any more nuanced or deep of an opinion, so you just keep saying the same thing over and over again so you'll feel like you're contributing.

So Europe's biggest problem is they're **** compared to the U.S. when it comes to assimilating different cultures into their own?

I've provided tons of nuanced opinion. I have 51 posts in this thread and only 3 of them have pointed to the numbers. Now I feel like a broad brushed Muslim too.
