Radical Islam Has Now Taken More Lives on US Soil Than All Other Terror Groups Combined
For all the people who criticize anyone who puts the blame of terrorist attacks on radical Islam, a new study has come out that shows the true about the situation that the United States is in right now. It seems every day that a new terror group proclaims their plans for the destruction of America. And everyday our leaders refuse to put the blame where it belongs.
That blame, a new report now shows, should lie heavily on the radical Islamists who are spreading terror and destruction across the globe in the name of Allah and their religion. The report was sponsored by the New America Foundation as well as Syracuse University--both solid, reputable sources.
According to the report, radical Islam has now killed over 90 U.S. citizens in America since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Take in mind that those are deaths on U.S. soil.
Over the same 15-year period of time, only 48 people have been killed by other terrorist groups or political or radical ideologies. Now, when someone asks what the greatest threat facing America is, the answer should be, without a doubt, radical Islam.
According to the researchers, they made sure that their dataset was accurate by including only killings perpetuated by members of terrorist groups who have a definitively stated hatred of America. Groups like Hamas and Hezbollah were discounted because they only have it out for people like Israel.
The dataset, however, isn't subjective. It relies, as the researchers state, on hard facts. " The dataset relies mainly upon court documents, wire service reports, and news reports as sources." Those aren't things that can be spun to reflect badly on Islam. The facts are doing that for themselves.
It's clearer than ever that the United States has a problem with radical Islam. The peaceful kind of Islam is clearly alright, but its radical brother has a death wish for our great country.
It's time we put a stop to that.
