Jihadists no threat to America...nothing to see here, move along

A new survey was taken by the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security of North Carolina (sounds comforting, doesn't it?) which says we have little, if anything to fear from Islam or sharia, and that the incidents of jihad in the U.S. have declined, so go back to sleep.  Nothing about the continued jihad globally, where almost 19,000 attacks have occurred since 0-11.  Of course, those numbers include honor murders but the Triangle Center does not address that aspect, and conveniently discounts those as not relevant to their conclusion.  There are other major flaws in the study, be seated while reading.

 Radical Muslim Americans Pose Little Threat, Study Says

WASHINGTON - A feared wave of homegrown terrorism by radicalized Muslim Americans has not materialized, with plots and arrests dropping sharply over the two years since an unusual peak in 2009, according to a new study by a North Carolina research group.
The study, to be released on Wednesday, found that 20 Muslim Americans were charged in violent plots or attacks in 2011, down from 26 in 2010 and a spike of 47 in 2009.
Charles Kurzman, the author of the report for the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security, called terrorism by Muslim Americans "a minuscule threat to public safety." Of about 14,000 murders in the United States last year, not a single one resulted from Islamic extremism, said Mr. Kurzman, a professor of sociology at the University of North Carolina.
Because of their bias, within that 14,000 they do not recognize honor murder, or give the number of those murders.  They let them stand as part of the whole, not an individual number.  Talk about taqiyya, and from an infidel, no less.
The report also found that no single ethnic group predominated among Muslims charged in terrorism cases last year - six were of Arab ancestry, five were white, three were African-American and two were Iranian, Mr. Kurzman said. That pattern of ethnic diversity has held for those arrested since Sept. 11, 2001, he said.
Now, if someone calls you a racist because you have strong conclusions about Islam, give them the above fact.  Then srand back and watch them start spinning.
Forty percent of those charged in 2011 were converts to Islam, Mr. Kurzman found, slightly higher than the 35 percent of those charged since the 2001 attacks. His new report is based on the continuation of research he conducted for a book he published last year, "The Missing Martyrs: Why There Are So Few Muslim Terrorists."
The decline in cases since 2009 has come as a relief to law enforcement and counterterrorism officials. In that year, the authorities were surprised by a series of terrorist plots or attacks, including the killing of 13 people at Fort Hood, Tex., by an Army psychiatrist who had embraced radical Islam, Maj. Nidal Hasan.
