We keep hearing how not all Muslims are terrorists, and how Islam is the religion of peace. Since I love looking at data, we will do that here.
There are 3.3 million Muslims in the United States. According to a 2007 survey by the Pew Research Center, 65 percent of the Muslim-American population are first-generation immigrants, and 61 percent of the foreign-born arrived in the 1990s or this decade. In fact, the US admits approximately 250,000 Muslims per year into the country.
In the fifteen years since 9/11, approximately 2 million Muslims have immigrated to the US.
Since June 17, 2015, there have been 5 confirmed terror attacks on US soil, involving at least 8 suspects. There have been a total of 73 killed and 86 injured.
Eight terrorists out of 2 million doesn’t sound like a lot, since that is only one terrorist out of about 250,000 people, until you realize that this is far higher than any other demographic.
