Not hardly as 9/11 attacks are far and few between and lesser and smaller Islamic attacks are far easier to pull off. Moreover, we didnít increase the size of the federal government by approximately 45 percent by creating the Department of Homeland Security and the new Directorate of Intelligence to protect ourselves from random unabombers and abortion clinic bombers.If we only focus on muslim-looking folks we are only trying to prevent 9/11.
Random attacks perpetrated by kooks, crazies, and flakes do not nearly represent the same threat we face emanating from Islamic terrorist attacks. I mean there are approx. 1.5 billion Muslims in the world. Not to mention that most of those kinds of random terror attacks as opposed to Islamic terrorist attacks are rare events, whereas Islamic terrorist attacks arise from the universal mission of Islam to make the world sovereign for Allah, which is the sole purpose of Islam, and are exponentially far more widespread and prevalent.A terrorist attack can, has, and will again come from non-muslims. I guarantee it.
Uhm...Muslim's may not think like you, I would have said you and me, but I clearly don't think like you thankfully, but Muslims are not crazy. They have a fundamental mission and they seek to fulfill that mission the best way they can.The threats of terrorism are equal regardless of the ideology of the terrorists. No crazy person is more of a threat than another crazy person simply because they worship differently.
Crazy is crazy.
Thus, all devout Muslims are jihadists, however, not all Muslims will partake in the form of jihad known as terrorism, but nevertheless there are numerous other forms of jihad they can participate in other than terrorism.
In any event, if a Muslim fights or otherwise is forced into fighting, they will resort to emulating the prophet Muhammad, because all devout Muslims are inculcated to blindly follow Muhammad, the uswa hasana, the perfect model and excellent example for emulation, which means they will resort to the tactics of terrorism.

Nevertheless, are you denying that the Islamic world was rallying around the Hezbos and Hamas terrorist groups when they were at war against Israel and not protesting in the streets all over the world against Israel? If you are going to deny it, Iím going to ask what planet you live on?
Furthermore with respect to your poll regarding suicide/homicide attacks, it is obviously invalid and absurd. Change the question to do you support suicide/homicide attacks against American kafirs in Iraq and Afghanistan and Jewish kafirs in Israel, and I suspect you will see nearly 100 percent support.
Nevertheless, that poll is still very alarming in its own right because look at all the Muslims that approve of homicide/suicide attacks regardless even when against Muslim civilians.
With respect to the USA Today Poll, it is also absurd. As if Muslims are going to cut his or her own throats and confess to pollsters who are completely ignorant of Islam the real purpose of the global jihad and their reason for migrating to the USA. That would be like a CIA agent living in Pakistan confessing his real intentions for being in Pakistan to a pollster. Not to mention it is conducted on a false understanding of Islam.
And your last BBC Poll is too ridiculous and absurd to even comment on. You can tell by the naive nature of the poll that it isnít worth the paper it is going to be printed on. In any event, because the practice of taqiyya (deception) is so prevalent in the Islamic world and especially with regards to Muslims living in the west, I take all polls of Muslims with a grain of salt. Not to mention that I wouldnít be surprised if the Wahhabi Lobby paid for that poll.
The notion that Muslims when confronted by kafirs wouldnít fulfill their obligation to lie is ludicrous. Nonetheless, that is the state of ignorance we have to live with in the West today.
Thus, you miserably fail! Try again.
Yeah right:Suicide is forbidden in the Qu'ran. End of. There is no debating what is in the Qu'ran
Whoever purposely throws himself from a mountain and kills himself, will be in the (Hell) Fire falling down into it and abiding therein perpetually forever; and whoever drinks poison and kills himself with it, he will be carrying his poison in his hand and drinking it in the (Hell) Fire wherein he will abide eternally forever; and whoever kills himself with an iron weapon, will be carrying that weapon in his hand and stabbing his abdomen with it in the (Hell) Fire wherein he will abide eternally forever
My slave has caused death on himself hurriedly, so I forbid Paradise for him
No wiggle room here. No if or buts. SUICIDE IS FORBIDDEN.
Find a Priest crazy enough and he can also sanction murder, does not mean the religion itself teaches it.
"He who commits suicide kills himself for his own benefit, while he who commits martyrdom sacrifices himself for the sake of his religion and his nation. While someone who commits suicide has lost hope with himself and with the spirit of Allah, the Mujahid is full of hope with regard to Allah's spirit and mercy. He fights his enemy and the enemy of Allah with this new weapon, which destiny has put in the hands of the weak, so that they would fight against the evil of the strong and arrogant. The Mujahid becomes a 'human bomb' that blows up at a specific place and time, in the midst of the enemies of Allah and the homeland, leaving them helpless in the face of the brave Shahid who... sold his soul to Allah, and sought the Shahada [Martyrdom] for the sake of Allah."
Sheik Qaradhawi added that these operations are allowed even when the casualties are civilians: "Israeli society is militaristic in nature. Both men and women serve in the army and can be drafted at any moment. [On the other hand] if a child or an elderly is killed in such an operation, he is not killed on purpose, but by mistake, and as a result of military necessity. Necessity justifies the forbidden."
