    A very common claim that I see thrown around, the golden piece of evidence that justifies Islamophobic ideology, is that most (or all) terrorist attacks are committed by Muslims.

    "that's not opinion that is fact".


    Not it's not.

    According to the FBI: http://www.fbi.gov/stats-services/pu...05/terror02_05
    (for the full list of recent terrorist attacks, scroll to bottom)

    Most terrorist attacks have not been committed by Muslims. In fact, according to the FBI, only 6% of terrorist attacks have been committed by Muslims.

    Some people eager to believe that Mooooozelems are out to get them will claim that they commit more attacks than any other group, but that's just not true.

    Latino Extremist groups have done 7 times more terror acts. Radical environmentalists have committed more terror attacks than radical muslims. Even radical Jewish groups have committed more terrorist attacks than radical Islamists.


    That comes from the FBI. Let's hope we can put that myth to rest.

    Using the definition given by the FBI and the statistics, also provided by the FBI you are absolutly correct. Most terrorist attacks in the U.S. are not perpetrated by Muslims. In fact, according to the FBI statistics, they are mostly perpetrated by LEFT WING NUT JOBS.

    Your buddies,..... Wee Wee.

    Of course there are some RIGHT WING NUT JOBS that are also commiting these Terrorist attacks, but most are the lefties, burining down houses, vandalizing buildings, etc.

    Good job Wee Wee, you are right. :D

    Yes left-wing extremists, radical environmentalist groups and the like have committed far more terrorist attacks than Muslim Radicals or Jewish Radicals etc.

    Of course I don't support any form of violence or terrorism so I wouldn't call them "buddies".

    So if the 9/11 attack failed and no one died, then Muslims/Islam would not be a threat?

    Is Islam a threat to the west Mr. Wei?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Coming to us with Media Maters as a source Wei?

    And how long till we tear you/it apart?

    FYI from the FBI

    LEFT-WING GROUPS:The FBI states leftist extremist groups "generally profess a revolutionary socialist doctrine and view themselves as protectors of the people against the "dehumanizing effects" of capitalism and imperialism." From 1960 to the mid-1980s, most acts of extremist violence were committed by leftist factions like the Weather Underground. A wellspring of disaffected, radical youth with ideological roots in the civil rights, women's liberation, and anti-war movements provided these groups with much of their militant fervor. However, broad left-wing violence has been in a marked decline since the fall of the Soviet Union and a successful FBI infiltration campaign in the mid-1980s.
    May have been on the decline after the '80's. But I'm willing to bet with the OWS movement, its taken a sharp and drastic uptick

    Also from their site for laughs.

    The same report found "little public evidence that the Obama administration has launched a significant effort to deal with the continuing criminal enforcement flaws."
    Another words, the Oblabla admin doesn't want to classify some acts as terrorism which would carry much harsher punishments for political reasons. Example. Fort hood shooting.

    Yes left-wing violent extremists have done bad things, I'm not denying that.

    Go ahead and sing it on the hilltops if it makes you happy, I'm not arguing. However, let's not forget that the claim that "most terrorist attacks have been committed by Muslims" is pure BS.

    Violent Extremism or 'Domestic Terrorism'?

    Since September 11, the threat of internationally based Islamic extremist networks has dominated concerns of Homeland Security officials. And while authorities say the threats posed by homegrown Islamic extremism is growing, the FBI has reported that roughly two-thirds of terrorism in the United States was conducted by non-Islamic American extremists from 1980-2001; and from 2002-2005, it went up to 95 percent.


    With the enactment of the Patriot Act in 2001, the legal definition of "terrorism" was expanded to include domestic as well as international terrorism. However, alternative definitions still exist at the FBI, Justice Department, Homeland Security Department, and Defense Department.
    Another words, that 96% by you is artificially high due to a change in classification. Kinda like Obama's "Seasonally Adjusted" unemployment numbers is artificially low.
