New Poll: 25% Young Muslims in U.S. support suicide bombing. 60% Muslims in U.S. worried about growing Islamic Extremism in U.S.

A Pew Research Centerpoll released this week reveals that one in four young Muslims living in America supports the use of suicide bombings to defend their religion are just fine. So, how's that for a religion of peace?

On the brighter side of things three out of four younger Muslims, and about 80 percent of Muslims altogether, say that suicide bombings are not appropriate.

Well, that is good but still not comforting. 25% is a pretty significant number of young muslims living in the United States and what exactly would they consider defending there religion?

Is the idea of defending their religion include the act of killing people who draw cartoons of Mohammed or utter any negative comment of any nature whatsoever about Islam as we have seen in the past.

Here is another thing to ponder, these are Muslims living in the United States, most of them were born here. This would mean that they must have been taught the idea of suicide bombings from somewhere. Could it be that they have been taught to think this way in their Mosques an in their associations with other Muslims?

This is where homegrown terrorism comes from, the type of homegrown terrorism that has been showing up in England and Spain in recent years.

Here are some other numbers in the Pew poll worthy of note:

5 percent of U.S. Muslims have favorable views of Al Qaeda. Another 4 percent just wouldn't say. That's not a small number folks when you realize there are approximately 2.35 million muslims in the U.S.

Sixty percent say they are concerned about a rise in Islamic extremism in the U.S. Wow!!! that should set an alarm off. 60% of Muslims I remind you....concerned of a rise of Islamic extremism in the U.S. Unfortunately, most of the U.S. doesn't seem to concerned.

Now get this one --- only 25 percent of U.S. Muslims actually believe that the attacks of 9/11 were carried out by Arab men. They're either lying or they are brainwashed.

The poll also says about one-third of U.S. Muslims who have flown in the past year say they had to endure some extra security screening because they are Muslims.

Well, good profiling is a good defensive technique against Muslim violence.
