Democratic Congresswoman: "Between 5 And 20%" Of Muslims Willing To Use Terrorism To Institute Caliphate
by Christopher Massie
California Democratic Rep. Loretta Sanchez said on Wednesday that "between 5 and 20%" of Muslims "have a desire for a caliphate and to institute that in any way possible," including the use of terrorism.
"But certainly, we know that there is a small group, and we don't know how big that is — it can be anywhere between 5 and 20%, from the people that I speak to — that Islam is their religion and who have a desire for a caliphate and to institute that in anyway possible, and in particular go after what they consider Western norms — our way of life," Sanchez said on "PoliticKING with Larry King."
Sanchez, who is running for Barbara Boxer's open Senate seat, added that this group of Muslims was "willing to use and they do use terrorism."
