BILL MAHER: This idea that we cannot even call it Islamic terrorism seems Orwellian to me. It seems like we're paying a very high price for this which is we can't discuss it even rationally. Can't we at least say that there are a number of factors that are involved? And the religion is certainly one of that.

[President Obama] presented this idea that it's poverty and education. It is poverty and education, also. But why are they impoverished and uneducated? It's mostly because of the religion. That's mostly why. The U.N. did a study in 2002, they found out that only 300 books had been translated into Arabic that year. In madrassas they only teach one book -- I don't have to tell you which one.
