    and draw our own conclusions based on what we've see happening in the world over the past 15 years doesn't equate with being "right-wing Islamophobes".  Just because some fuckwad RWs demonize Muslims as a tool for advancing their own neocon agendas doesn't mean we don't have a problem with Islamic terrorism, for crissakes.  Try to clear your mind of the railroads your brain is running on.

    •  Here's an interesting article (0+ / 0-)

      I went looking for facts and figures. Here's an article that argues from FBI data that Muslims are not the originators of the majority of domestic terrorist plots.  In a nutshell, it shows 45 plots in 2011 by domestic Muslim terrorists, 36 plots by anti-tax extremists (that was the 2nd-largest number), and a total of 80 plots by non-Muslim terrorists (including the 36 by the anti-tax extremists, plus things like abortion-clinic bombers, white supremacist groups, black supremacist groups, etc.). The author concludes that since all other sources combined accounted for 80 plots, and Muslim terrorists accounted for only 45 -- the single largest source -- that proves that domestic Muslim terrorism isn't our biggest problem. I read those numbers very differently. But I made a good-faith effort to find some actual evidence, and this is what I found. Maybe later I'll have time to look for more.
