Simple Comparison

The US State Department reported that there were over 22,000 deaths caused by terrorism last year. Over half of those killed or injured were Muslims.

Everyday, almost 16,000 children die from hunger-related causes. One child every five seconds.

Unsurprisingly, non-state actors murdered by the US military et al. in pursuit of political ends were not counted in the terrorism deaths statistic. Hrmph.
