Default Poll shows how US Muslims are like Protestants – and how they're not

ok we have an estimated 7 million muslims in the US. according to this article 70,000 of these people our government decided to let into this country thinks its ok to blow up innocent people in the name of islam while 490,000 thinks that "SOMETIMES" , ITS OK TO BLOW UP INNOCENT PEOPLE IN THE NAME OF ISLAM.
I FEEL MUCH SAFER NOW....

Quote:
America is one of the exceptions to this pattern, although about two-thirds of US Muslims are foreign-born, according to Pew Forum researchers. Some 56 percent of US Muslims agree with the view that many religions can lead to heaven, compared with 18 percent in the median nation in the global survey.
Terrorism. Around the world, most Muslims reject suicide bombing and other attacks against civilians in the name of Islam. Some 81 percent of US Muslims, on one end of the spectrum, say such violence against civilians is never justified, while some say it is either often justified (1 percent) or sometimes justified (7 percent) to defend Islam.

the point is , there are tens if not hundreds of thousands of "imported lunatics" running around in this country and they are ticking time bombs ready to go off..
i don't know if the author of this article was trying to "calm" the islamophobes or what
but anyone who does the math shouldn't feel comfortable with the results.
yet the government will continue to issue visas to these people because its more important to not look like they're discriminating.

If it was up to me, I'd be stricter on ALL immigration: Muslims, Mexicans, Europeans, Asians, ect.

Be alert and vigilant on Thursday. It is the anniversary of bin Laden's death and radical Muslims have a fondness for celebrating such dates with acts of violence.

Yes, but 81% say it's never justified. It's like the 1% of Catholics and/or Christians that are Westboro Baptist Church transients.

Let's not panic over the minority.

When was the last time the Westboro Baptist Church killed people.

Ignoring the minority is whats going to get people killed.
