Here's a Surprise (Not)!

A poll taken in Britain yields not-so-surprising results:

YouGov sought to gauge the character of the Muslim community's response to the events of July 7. As the figures in the chart show, 88 per cent of British Muslims clearly have no intention of trying to justify the bus and Tube murders.

However, six per cent insist that the bombings were, on the contrary, fully justified.
Six per cent may seem a small proportion but in absolute numbers it amounts to about 100,000 individuals who, if not prepared to carry out terrorist acts, are ready to support those who do.

Moreover, the proportion of YouGov's respondents who, while not condoning the London attacks, have some sympathy with the feelings and motives of those who carried them out is considerably larger - 24 per cent.

Yet these are the very same people who are worried about "racial profiling" and retaliatory actions by both the citizenry and the government.

If bombings were being perpetrated by white Christians or Jews, you can bet there would be no tolerance for those who "sympathized" with their cause, either in Britain or here in the U.S. The very idea is despicable.

How can you sympathize with people who want to kill others simply because they do not share your religion or the values that accompany it?

Islam is losing its PR campaign as "the religion of peace."
