    Is Islam A Religion Of Peace? Fact Checker | What Is Sharia Law?

    Before I begin I want to say that many Western Muslims are good people who follow a moderate version of Islam and are therefore able to congregate in a non-muslim country the point of this video is to highlight global Islamic beliefs which are in sharp contrast to the hypothesis that Islam is a religion of peace now I bore you with the details but I will cite the 2013 Pew Research report where the researchers interviewed samples of Muslims from about 66% of the Muslim world so the following numbers are linked to the sixty-six percent not the entire Muslim population first up I did a key calculation I…
