    Pretty shocking, isn't it. Take not that the researchers felt the need to ask only about terrorist attacks against US civilian targets, thereby giving the impression that terrorist attacks against US military targets are normal.

    Unrelenting pursuit of the war against jihadi terrorism, killing as many jihadi's and their supporters as possible.

    Even some US research institutes want to be blind to the deep hatred towards the West that is prevalent in many (not all) muslim societies and populations.

    Artevelde -

    Given the research totally contradicts your position - what do you base your position on?

    It doesn't contradict my position. Cite me one credible study that shows that a majority of Muslims condemns all terrorist attacks against the US, Israel and India by any muslim extremist organization.

    You yourself said that there is broad support for Hamas and Hezbollah, two avowedly genocidal terrorist organizations.

    Again you come with a useless statistic that is purely limited to terrorist attacks against US civilian targets. How many Muslims condemn all terrorist attacks against Israel?
