Jihadist Uses ‘Popularity’ to Defend Killing Innocents

After listening to this video, I commented that the Islamic fundamentalist guy wasn’t making any sense. Someone responded to me by saying that he was being consistent. I considered it a bit further and responded with this:

I guess it’s self-consistent. If only fundamentalists matter and fundamentalists don’t vote, anyone who votes isn’t a fundamentalist and so isn’t a real Muslim. So, fundamentalism is popular among Muslims if being a Muslim is defined by being a fundamentalist. And, so, fundamentalism is popular if anyone’s opinion who isn’t a fundamentalist doesn’t count meaning that fundamentalism is popular among fundamentalists who don’t vote because anyone who votes isn’t a real Muslim. Got it.
