During a Heritage Foundation event on focused on the Benghazi scandal, a woman asked a question of terrorism expert Brigitte Gabriel regarding how Islam is often portrayed negatively. This video is her spirited response: the peaceful majority were irrelevant.

When you look at 15-25% of the world Muslim population, you're looking at 180 million to 300 million people, dedicated to the destruction of Western civilization,” Gabriel said. “That is as big as the United States. So why should we worry about the 15 to 25%? Because it's the radicals that kill.”

The radical Islamists give all Muslims a bad name, and they should be upset about that. But simply believing that because most Muslims are peaceful that radical Islamists are not a threat is a naive view.
