    The estimate that 20,000 could die (not enough to clear all the beaches so we can swim in peace) will only be poor people. There’s a new drug for those who can afford it, so we don’t expect anyone that matters to die.

    That is sad. 20,000 is a lot.

    However, to put things in perspective, this year alone, Muslims have murdered 17,875 and injured 16,973.
    This year alone.

    Wow, we did much better in Iraq when we liberated them and brought them Democracy.

    To put the 20,000 deaths in actual perspective, here is the CDC data for causes of death in the US alone for 2011, the latest year available. Ebola would replace pneumonitis for #15.

    @Jim Guess Jim Guess said, “…, this year alone, Muslims have murdered 17,875…”


    And in 2003, Christian soldiers from America murdered 100,000 innocent women and children in Iraq.


    You win.

    Does anyone else besides me find the numbers quoted in Jim Guess’ post a bit strange? Such precise numbers for murders and injuries…seems a bit unbelievable that they have such precise numbers…unless they made them up.

    Bollocks cartoon. Ebola is a hobby disease for DEATH.
    These are numbers that make a real difference:
    Source: WHO:


    Top 10 killer diseases in Africa:


    01 – Pneumonia / Lower respiratory infections (bacterial, viral, and environmental) 4 million deaths
    02 – HIV/AIDS (3 million deaths in 2004; somewhere else I read 605 000 more recently)
    03 – Malaria 1 to 5 million deaths
    04 – Diarrhoea (8% of all deaths in Africa, 2,2 million)
    05 – Tuberculosis 2 million deaths
    06 – Measles 530 000 deaths
    07 – Whooping Cough (200 to 300 000 deaths)
    08 – Tetanus (214 000 deaths)
    09 – Meningitis (174 000 deaths)
    10 – Syphilis (157 000)


    Any death to any disease, like Ebola, is as tragic as any attributed to above; to die from Ebola is scary but must be put in perspective

    Jim Guess, much like his name, is thumb-sucking those numbers


    To thumb-suck:South Africanism; To pull out of thin air an apparent fact and make it sound plausible.

    Hiram,
    Sorry, but your ‘facts’ are total lies.

    omQ,
    Ad hominem attacks don’t change facts.

    EVERYONE!
    Go to the link I provided. Check for yourself. ALL are documented!

    Here it is again.
    www.thereligionofpeace.com
    This is a site that tracks Muslim attacks around the world. Do they get them all? I doubt it. But ALL listed attacks are verified.

    omQ,
    Your point is well taken on the top ten killer diseases. That too is very sad.

    But your second post shows your real colors. God help you.

    @Jim Guess

    Ad hominem? This coming from the bloke who bigotedly paints an entire religion in a bad colour.
    Speaking of which: My “true colours”?
    Since I’m from the Rainbow Nation, what colours might these be?

    I have to defend Mr Guess. He gave a link, and the link seems to have a fairly reliable methodology and shows that Muslims murdered at least 17,875 persons.


    Of course, those are murders by Muslims that his link counted in reports written in newspapers written in Western languages, and is almost certainly an accurate count of the murders in those stories, and hence is also almost certainly an understatement of the total number of murders by Muslims.


    Of course, in the US alone, the CDC counted 16,238 people murdered, and the CIA says that the US is 76.8% Christian, that makes precisely 12470.784 killed by Christians just in the US, which has about 10% of all Christians.

    @Michael wme

    Thank you, Michael.
    I truly appreciate your taking the time to deal with the math even to the decimal places, especially since we know that St Augustine warned us about the sin of using math!

    Sometimes it seems like the only way to help Africa is to get all of the humans out of there.
