As seen on the College Republicans blog at the end of a post about Islam. To the blog's credit, Nigel points out in a comment that, "I agree that some individuals who continue to incite this type of violence aren't very helpful people for the image of their religion, but I think it's important to remember many of them are very different from the millions of muslims who are as peace loving as their christian, hindu, jewish, atheist and other brothers and sisters."
I wonder how the author would rationalize the fact that:
The results with respect to Islam do not support the notion that it is inimical to growth. On the contrary, virtually every statistically significant coefficient on Muslim population shares reported in this paper -- in both cross-country and within-country statistical analyses -- is positive. If anything, Islam promotes growth.with his understanding of 'filthy barbarians.'
