  1. it's because Islam is violent and stupid

    Crazy stuff like Muhammaed split the moon into two pieces (54:1-2)

    Sexism saying that a mans testimoney is worth twice that of a womans. "And call to witness, from among your men, two witnesses. And if two men be not found then a man and two women" (2:282)
    Sahih Bukhari (6:301) – "[Muhammad] said, 'Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?' They replied in the affirmative. He said, 'This is the deficiency in her intelligence.'"

    or the fact that their prophet Muhammed had sex with a 9 year old. Sahih Muslim (8:3309)

    Then we move onto what muslims today personally believe…
    26% of younger Muslims in America believe suicide bombings are justified. (Pew Research 2007)
    Only 57% of Muslims worldwide disapprove of al-Qaeda. Only 51% disapprove of the Taliban. (Pew Research 2013)
    68% of Palestinian Muslims say suicide attacks against civilians in defense of Islam are justified. (Pew Global)
    78% of British Muslims support punishing the publishers of Muhammad cartoons (NOP Research)

    Pew Research (2010): 84% of Egyptian Muslims support the death penalty for leaving Islam
    86% of Jordanian Muslims support the death penalty for leaving Islam
    30% of Indonesian Muslims support the death penalty for leaving Islam
    76% of Pakistanis support death the penalty for leaving Islam
    51% of Nigerian Muslims support the death penalty for leaving Islam

    83% of Pakistanis support stoning adulterers
    78% of Pakistanis support killing apostates

    Pew Research (2010): 82% of Egyptian Muslims favor stoning adulterers
    70% of Jordanian Muslims favor stoning adulterers
    42% of Indonesian Muslims favor stoning adulterers
    82% of Pakistanis favor stoning adulterers
    56% of Nigerian Muslims favor stoning adulterers

    I could go on all day here but I think we get the picture.
    around 145m people in Indonesia are radicalised, around 55m in egypt, 135m in pakistan.
    The list goes on to the point were we see that a coservative estimate of around half of all muslims support violent and strict islamic behaviour including sharia laws.
    Even turkey, a very moderate muslim country. around a third believe that honour killings are justified.

    You may encounter many nice law abiding muslims however the facts show that not only are the source texts violent, sexist and stupid but also that personal beliefs amongst muslims mirror these beliefs.


  3. Am proudly Muslim and as a Muslim i know Islam is peace. Every one has a right to say or believe all the wrong things about Islam. The religion has survived centuries and decades before Trump and it will be here after Trump.

  4. by the way, Donald Trump didn't ban all Muslims . this is propaganda, again, but the Democrats which owns the majority of the news including Comedy Central. Fox is the union Republican news out there MSNBC, CBS, NBC and pretty much all of them are all Democrats. As my understanding goes, only the Fox News channel is Republican so they're completely outnumbered in the news media is completely unbalanced and one-sided. So hamster for the Democrats have more propaganda power than the Republicans

  5. and didn't Obama banned all Muslims from predominant Muslim countries from entering the United States? Or something like that? if this is true where was the outrage then? Because Obama is a Democrat and the majority of the news including Comedy Central are Democrats so clearly that I could speak out against their own. If this is true then Obama did worse and he demonstrated more racism than Donald Trump

  6. stop calling it in Muslim ban when it's only seven countries that are known to Harbor terrorist extremist out of the rest of the Muslim countries. That term is misleading. Trevor is a Democrat, the entire show of The Daily Show is democratic . so clearly they're going to have negative propaganda against their opposers, okay the Republicans. Trevor is giving serious this information. Donald Trump is actually a great president so far he is done nothing seriously wrong there just still angry that they lost the presidency ( the Democrats)… name one illegal act that Donald Trump has done during his presidency? Name one?… Muslims right now are problematic broke the entire world . every terrorist attack every plane explosion every bomb explosions on the street is Muslim related. You guys should check your Muslim history. please subscribe to my channel and search for my playlist concerning Muslim history and you will know and understand better about Muslims and how they're a threat
