There is irrefutable proof that it is Islam, not poverty, that causes terrorism. A three decades long study shows that as worldwide poverty has declined, terrorism has increased.
Democrats are constantly on the attack. Whenever they recognize an opportunity to promote one of their destructive aims, they will do anything necessary. As we have seen over and over again, this means lying. John Kerry–the slug who plays the Secretary of State on television (don’t tell me the Democrats’ low information supporters know any better)–is among the best liars his party has. Kerry almost lied his way into the Oval Office a few years back, you will recall.
During a recent meeting with a representative of the Vatican, Kerry took the opportunity to lie to suck up to the Muslims in his effort to get them to abandon their eternal goal of wiping Israel off the map.
What Kerry said was that poverty (and of course “disenfranchisement” – a favorite Democrat word usually used when they are caught committing fraud) causes terrorism. This lie gives Kerry and his party a few advantages. They can get cover from a Papacy that already blames poverty for all of the world’s ills, and they further reinforce the lie that Islam is a “Religion of Peace.” Kerry pushes aside the fact that Islam is actually just another failed economic system created by people who knew and know nothing about how thriving economies work.
As “an important member of Barack Obama’s Cabinet,” Kerry must have been told about the results of a huge and exhaustive study of the results of America’s benevolent introduction of free market principles to the world. The study completed by economists Maxim Pinkovskiy of MIT and Xavier Sala-i-Martin of Columbia shows that over a thirty six year period, the percentage of the world’s people living on the equivalent of a dollar a day dropped from 26.8% to just 5.4%!
This drop is so great that it leaves no room for argument from the freedom-hating left. Poverty doesn’t incite Muslims to blow people up; they’ve lived in poverty for hundreds of generations. It is Islam that causes terror attacks. John Kerry knows this but lies about it anyway; he is a Democrat after all.
