The Fresno Bee reprinted a column by the New York Times‘ Nicholas Kristof belittling fears of radical Islamic terror — almost exactly two months before Tuesday’s deadly shooting attack in the city by a man shouting “Allahu Akbar.

In a column published Feb. 17, under the headline, “Husbands are deadlier than jihadi terrorists,” Kristof wrote:

It’s true that American Muslims – both born in the United States and immigrants from countries other than those subject to Trump’s restrictions – have carried out deadly terrorism in America. There have been 123 such murders since the 9/11 attacks – and 230,000 other murders.

Last year Americans were less likely to be killed by Muslim terrorists than for being Muslim, according to Charles Kurzman of the University of North Carolina. The former is a risk of approximately one in 6 million; the latter, one in 1 million.

The bottom line is that most years in the United States, ladders kill far more Americans than Muslim terrorists do. Same with bathtubs. Ditto for stairs. And lightning.

Above all, fear spouses: Husbands are incomparably more deadly in America than jihadi terrorists.

Kristof also attacked Trump aide Sebastian Gorka, a former Breitbart News editor, for being focused on the threat of Islamic terror.
