How many Muslims are Terrorists?

http://prophetofdoom.net/Islamic_Terrorism_Timeline.Islam

I am often asked to guess as to how many Muslims are jihadists. The
easiest answer is: enough to commit the terrorist acts detailed in this
1,000-page-long Islamic Terror Timeline. But if you are looking for a more analytical response, I think the math goes something like this:

There
are between 1.2 and 1.5 billion Muslims in the world. Half are women.
While a substantial percentage of Islamic women support jihad, less
than one in fifty Islamic terrorist acts is actually perpetrated by a
female. That leaves us with a maximum pool of jihadists that is just
over 50% of the total population.

The overwhelming
preponderance of terrorist acts are conducted by young Muslim men 15 to
30 years old. This age bracket covers about half of the male population
of the Islamic world, leaving us with a potential jihad pool of 25% of
all Muslims - approximately 300 million people.

The most
logical way to determine the percentage of Muslims who are
salafi/fundamentalists - a precondition to jihad - is to consider the
most recent elections in Islamic countries. For example, the
fundamentalist Islamic group HAMAS received 65% of the popular vote in "Palestine." The somewhat secular Fatah, at least by comparison to HAMAS, won only 30% of the votes.

While
he was not popularly elected, Turkey's president, Ahmet Necdet Sezar,
is a fundamentalist Muslim. Turkey's parliament, which selected him by
a 70% majority, is formed as a result of a popular mandate and it is
predominately composed of fundamentalist Muslims. Turkey's Prime
Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is the nation's most popular leader. He
is a convicted felon who believes: "Mosques are our barracks, domes are
our helmets, minarets our bayonets, and believers our soldiers." He won
a landslide victory in 2002 - and Turkey is considered to be the most
moderate Islamic state.

The newly elected fundamentalist
Islamic nutcase ruling Iran, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, earned 62%
of the popular vote. The most moderate Islamic challenger garnered less
than twenty percent support. The notion that the majority of Iranians
are hostile to the Shia mullahs, and are poised for a revolution, is a
myth

In Lebanon, politicians got all excited when 50,000 people
marched in support of democracy. The following week when 500,000 people
protested in support of Islam/Submission, the percentage of
fundamentalist Muslims became clear.

Fundamentalist Islamic
candidates in the most recent Iraqi elections, those individuals who
belonged to clerical parties like the Islamic Revolution in Iraq
founded by Grand Ayatollah al-Sistani, won 65% of the seats in the new
parliament.

While opinion surveys can be suspect, and are often
tainted by the manner in which a question is phrased, there are two
that are worth mentioning. Opinion polls taken by the British
Government reveal that 70% of Iraqis think killing Americans is
justified, something that is impossible to justify outside the
conditioning of fundamentalist Islam. The rising death toll of American
troops and stunning escalation in terror in Iraq give credence to those
numbers. Polls taken in Pakistan, where bin Laden is being harbored,
reveal that 70% of Pakistanis view the world's most famous Islamic
terrorist very favorably. In fact, Osama has become the most popular
name for boys in the region.

Therefore, based upon the most
objective data available to us, at least 60% of all Muslims have the
potential to be jihadists by way of their fundamentalist voting
patterns. That is to say, Islam has grown substantially closer to its
salafi, and thus terrorist, roots over the past decade. It is safe to
say that 750 million Muslims are fundamentalists trying to follow
Allah's orders and Muhammad's example. And as fundamentalists, they are
potential jihadists.

If the 60% response levels derived from
polling data is an accurate reflection of the current state of Islam,
then sex and age criteria further reduce Islamic terrorist candidates
down to a maximum of one in every seven Muslims - 25% of 60%. That
means that no more than 15% of the total Islamic population of 1.2 to
1.5 billion people has the potential to be a terrorist should the
opportunity arise. That equates to a minimum of 180 million potential
jihadists and a maximum of 225 million.

But when it comes to
actual jihadists, to those who have or will commit an act of terrorism
in Allah's name, my research suggests that they represent no more than
one in one hundred of the 180 million young fundamentalist Muslim men
prepared mentally, morally, and spiritually to be terrorists. That
means that there are 1.8 million actual Islamic jihadists on the planet
today - a number which could jump one hundred fold almost
instantaneously should the opportunity arise.

Middle East
political commentator Daniel Pipes says that there are no less than 130
million Islamic jihadists but I don't believe that is possible because
there haven't been sufficient jihadist attacks over the past 20 years
for that many Muslims to be engaged in the business of killing people
for Allah. The potential pool of jihadists, however, is reasonably
close to Pipes' estimate.

Before you get a warm and cozy
feeling, thinking that only 60% of Muslims are sufficiently
indoctrinated in fundamentalist Islam to be a terrorist should the
opportunity arrise, and that only 25% of those Muslims are the
appropriate age and sex to actually engage in jihad, let's consider
some recent historical events. In 1917, less than 3% of Russians were
Communists. Yet since that 3% was sufficiently corrupted by an immoral
and ruthless religion (Socialist Secular Humanism), they quickly came
to oppress the entire nation - murdering 30 million Russians in the
process. In 1924, less than 3% of Germans were Nazis. And yet since
that 3% was sufficiently corrupted by Hitler's "People's Religion" as
it was immorally and ruthlessly laid out in Mein Kampf, that 3% came to
oppress the entire nation and led the world into a war that killed 50
million people.

Also keep in mind that while only 15% of
Muslims are potential jihadists today, that percentage is growing
rapidly. Thanks to OPEC funding and clerical indoctrination, the
Islamic world is becoming increasingly fundamentalist. In twenty years
most Muslims could be terrorists - and probably will be.

There
is another factor in play that we must not ignore. When America invaded
Iraq my analysis was validated. With accessible Infidel targets, the
gap between potential jihadists and actual jihadists narrowed
substantially. Acts of terrorism increased over one million percent -
from one every several months to hundreds per day. Given the
opportunity to tangibly demonstrate their religion, an unparalleled
number of Muslims became terrorists. Therefore, should there be another
miscue like Iraq, or should the war on terror be expanded, rather than
dealing with 1.8 million Islamic jihadists, the world will have to
confront a hundred million of them, or more.

The moral of the
story is: the fastest way to convert potential jihadists into actual
jihadists is to send infidels into an Islamic country. To say that the
American invasion of Iraq was counterproductive, is the understatement
of the decade.send infidels islamic country american invasion iraq counterproductive understatement decade

    Ok. You have to get your facts straight. Turks in general are as liberal as muslims can get. Ahmet Necdet Sezer is a serious secularist calling him an Islamic radical is the furthest thing from the truth. Taayip erdogan on the hand is a different story. Do your research before making stuff up!

    A) muslims are two group generally
    1) who that say we are muslim and do Islam advises
    2) who that say we are musliom and don;t do Islam advises
    some one that terror other are not real muslim, some one who don't accept other Idea are not muslim,
    Ali-eb-abitaleb was first Imam shia and Islam messanger say him it is ur right to be Islamic countries controler and you are best one for this post but if people don't accept you, it is not your right and you have to accept people Idea and vote and Ali-ebn-abitaleb do this, so reall muslims accept other view and they don't terror any one
    B)Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is not Iranian president! he is a doll and Ali Khamenei control it, just watch videos that millions of people go to protest in streets while they may be killed

    It's mentioned in the Koran that Allah Gave Israel To The Jews.

    THE QUR'AN SAYS:

    "To Moses We [Allah] gave nine clear signs. Ask the Israelites how he [Moses] first appeared amongst them. Pharoah said to him: 'Moses, I can see that you are bewitched.' 'You know full well,' he [Moses] replied, 'that none but the Lord of the heavens and the earth has revealed these visible signs. Pharoah, you are doomed.'"

    "Pharoah sought to scare them [the Israelites] out of the land [of Israel]: but We [Allah] drowned him [Pharoah] together with all who were with him. Then We [Allah] said to the Israelites: 'Dwell in this land [the Land of Israel]. When the promise of the hereafter [End of Days] comes to be fulfilled, We [Allah] shall assemble you [the Israelites] all together [in the Land of Israel]."

    "We [Allah] have revealed the Qur'an with the truth, and with the truth it has come down. We have sent you [Muhammed] forth only to proclaim good news and to give warning."

    [Qur'an, "Night Journey," chapter 17:100-104]

    I accept koran my friend but if you don't accept it why do you accept some part of it about Moses?
    I answer myslef you accept that parts you like and refuse some parts you don't like
    Koran accept Moses as a messenger like jesus, do you ever thnik why?
    why in a society that have a few Jewish or christ, Koran talks about them, and tell them stories that no body know them in that Ingnorant society?
    if koran is not by God how anticipate satanism and talk about it?
    If koran is not truth why it talk about moses and talk true about him?
    if it is not by God how it talk about fingers and tell us all of fingers are diferent and how it tell us so many science thnigs that we know it in 2010?
    If it is not by God and messanger of Islam was a lier, why koran don't lie about no changing rule of koran?
    yes Koran told human it will be just one Koran to the end of world and you can see there is just one Koran around the world
    if it is not by god how a Illiterate man (Islam messanger) can say something that in arabic is like peom?
    so if muhammad wrote them by his mind not God's messages, so why he don't want any thing for them of people expect praying God?
    why muhammad spend all of his life and his mony to Islam developmant
    My friend, talk about Israel and palestine is another thing, I think we can talk about it in a Q, and I will create that Q soon
    but think about what I say Koran is truth

    The simple answer is that either purposely or without knowing, you have done less than half the research.

    1) O Children of Israel! Remember My Favour which I bestowed upon you, and fulfil (your obligations to) My Covenant (with you) so that I fulfil (My Obligations to) your covenant (with Me), and fear none but Me.
    ( سورة البقرة , Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #40) <=== The Children of Israel have to Obey Allah as well.

    2) And (remember) when We took a covenant from the Children of Israel, (saying): Worship none but Allah (Alone) and be dutiful and good to parents, and to kindred, and to orphans and Al-Masakin (the poor), and speak good to people, enjoin righteousness and forbid evil, and say the truth about Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم, and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and give Zakat. Then you slid back, except a few of you, while you are backsliders. (Tafsir Al-Qurtubi).
    ( سورة البقرة , Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #83) <=== This is what the Children if Israel chose to do instead.

    3) Ask the Children of Israel how many clear Ayat (proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) We gave them. And whoever changes Allah's Favour after it had come to him, [e.g. renounces the Religion of Allah (Islam) and accepts Kufr (disbelief)] then surely, Allah is Sev...

    ( سورة البقرة , Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #211) <=== More rebuke to the people who accoording you Israel was "given" to. Rebuked becasue they chose to become agressors and muderers.

    4) And will make him [('Îsa (Jesus)] a Messenger to the Children of Israel (saying): "I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, that I design for you out of clay, a figure like that of a bird, and breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by Allah's Leave; and I heal him who was born blind, and the leper, and I bring the dead to life by Allah's Leave. And I inform you of what you eat, and what you store in your houses. Surely, therein is a sign for you, if you believe.
    ( سورة آل عمران , Aal-e-Imran, Chapter #3, Verse #49)
    4b) Verily, We took the covenant of the Children of Israel and sent Messengers to them. Whenever there came to them a Messenger with what they themselves desired not, - a group of them they called liars (Jesus and Muhammad), and others among them they killed (Jesus).
    ( سورة المائدة , Al-Maeda, Chapter #5, Verse #70)
    <=== Then before Muhammad, Jews were ordered to accept Jesus as a his messenger. What did they do to Jesus?

    5) Indeed Allah took the covenant from the Children of Israel (Jews), and We appointed twelve leaders among them. And Allah said: "I am with you if you perform As-Salat (Prayer) and give Zakat (Charity) and believe in My Messengers (Jesus, and then Muhammad); honour and assist them, and lend a good loan to Allah, verily, I will expiate your sins and admit you to Gardens under which rivers flow (in Paradise). But if any of you after this, disbelieved, he has indeed gone astray from the Straight Path."
    ( سورة المائدة , Al-Maeda, Chapter #5, Verse #12
    5b) Those among the Children of Israel who disbelieved were cursed by the tongue of Dawud (David) and 'Îsa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary). That was because they disobeyed (Allah and the Messengers) and were ever transgressing beyond bounds.
    ( سورة المائدة , Al-Maeda, Chapter #5, Verse #78)
    <=== Finally, Allah's favor and covenant was TAKEN from the Jews because they chose to disobey their lord.


    AND FINALLY, CHAPTER 7, VERSE 129 SEALS THEIR FATE:

    They said: "We (Children of Israel) had suffered troubles before you came to us, and since you have come to us." He said: "It may be that your Lord will destroy your enemy and make you successors on the earth, so that He may see how you act?"

    So how have the Children of Israel acted all these years. If you see no problem in the suffering of innocent Plaestinians, then that is your CHOICE, but it lies in the face of FACTS. The Arabs are no better or less barbaric than the Israelis, but that DOES NOT give the Israelis a free ticket to butcher and litereally enslave the Palestinains.
