New York — Glenn Beck and Fareed Zakaria are best known as political pundits, but this week the two are locked head-to-head in a battle over math.
Beck launched the feud by claiming on his radio show last week that 10% of Muslims are terrorists.
“What is the number of Islamic terrorists? 1 percent? I think it’s closer to 10%, but the rest of the P.C. world will tell you, ‘Oh no, it’s miniscule,'” the Fox host said.
Beck first made the claim in his 2003 book “The Real America,” in which he said “Ninety percent of Islam is peaceful. Ten percent of Islam wants us dead.”
