    We should probably be watching all sports bars and strip clubs out there as well.

    It totally depends. We americans only seem to focus on terrorism when it affects us. I haven't seen any hard numbers, but probably since 9/11 - and in particular, since Bush's war in Iraq started - at least a plurality of terrorist attacks have been from islamic affiliated groups.

    In the past 20 years overall, however, I doubt that was the case. Like I said, americans pretty much paid no attention to terrorism pre-9/11. In the last two or three decades most terrorism has probably come from hindu groups, like Tamil Tigers, and drug lords in south america. Tamil Tigers have probably killed WAY more people that hezbollah ever has. But, you wouldn't know that from being an american, because we don't pay any attention to terrorism in India, Sri Lanka, or south america - because it doesn't affect us.

    The Medical Director of the Nation of Colombia reports ten thousand people killed in Colombia due to terrorist activities, in just seven years: 1995-2002.

    There were 18 major terrorist bombings in Colombia in the year 2002 alone. I guess that number doesn't include "minor" bombings. A dozen City mayors, and scores of national legislators have been assasinated or blown up.

    We in the U.S., of course don't hear about it. Because it doesn't affect us. All we hear about is muslim terrorism, because it directly affects us and we have been conditioned like Pavlov's dogs to assume most or virtually all terrorism is islamic.

    -By way of comparison, the Israeli Government reports that there were 428 total Israelis killed by terrorism in the entire decade of the 1990s.

    -The Colombian Government reports, ten thousand colombians, including dozens of city mayors and national legislators, killed in terrorist attacks in just seven years 1995-2002.

    I think that lately, self-professed Muslims have done more terrorist attacks than have been done by alleged followers of any other major religion.

    With the ohh so minor exception that NONE of the terrorism involved organized religion. No church or religion sponsored or inspired it.
