"Muslim Demographics Video" (Philip)

See a debunk of this faked video (although funny, especially the 8.1 children/woman fertility rate of Muslims in France) in Tiny Frog, Muslim Demographics, 2009-05-03.

Your link is certainly worth a look. However, I don't think the video is "faked" (though it is a bit alarmist). What I do think is that this issue is very complicated and vulnerable to fallacious logic on both sides.

See also Duncan Macleod, Muslim Demographics on YouTube Abuse of Statistics, 2009-05-11.

"However, I don't think the video is "faked" (though it is a bit alarmist)"

All the numbers showed by the video are false (although funny, especially the 8.1 children/woman fertility rate of Muslims in France), if you prefer. You can compare with the CIA World Fact Book.

"What I do think is that this issue is very complicated and vulnerable to fallacious logic on both sides."

I concur.
