Muslims are the Greatest Victims of Jihadi Terrorism

Via The Jawa Report, from Long War Journal:

The Combating Terrorism Center at West Point recently released a stunning report which found that Muslims have accounted for 85 percent of the casualties from al Qaeda attacks between 2004-2008.

Even more astounding, during the last two years of the study (2006-2008), the percentage of al Qaeda’s Muslim victims skyrocketed to an almost-unbelievable 98 percent.

The revelation that a full 85 percent of the 3,010 people killed by Al Qaeda between 2004 and 2008 were Muslims serves as a conclusive rebuke of Zawahiri’s claims. Furthermore, while Western columnists and politicians have often remarked that Muslims are “the real victims” of jihadi terrorism, never before has that assertion been so conclusively or overwhelmingly supported by hard data.

The CTC report’s authors (Scott Helfstein, Nassir Abdullah, and Muhammad al Obaidi) wisely used only Arabic-language reporting in their research, in order to sidestep any complaints of bias that would have inevitably resulted from using English-language news accounts.

It’s true that Al Qaeda’s support in the Muslim world has already been steadily declining in recent years — mainly due to this very issue. But the headline “Al Qaeda Kills Eight Times More Muslims Than Non-Muslims” could well be a final death blow to al Qaeda’s efforts to win the hearts and minds of the Muslim world.

What religion do most terrorists claim to follow, represent and defend? (Whether rightly or wrongly, they claim to follow Islam.)

Where are most of these terrorists based? (Muslim majority countries.)

Where do most of these terrorists carry out their attacks? (In the nearest convenient place – the Muslim majority country where they are based. At marketplaces, mosques, and even madrassas.)

Therefore, who comprises the vast majority of their victims? (Muslims.)

So tell me again… Exactly why you don’t support George W. Bush killing tens of thousands of Muslim-murdering jihadis and saving 750,000 Iraqi Muslims lives?

    How old is this post?
    Anyway, to answer your question

    … because Bush has created twice the jihadists he’s killed and caused even more deaths.

    ‘Going to war for peace is like f***ing for virginity’ I’ve heard.
    Certainly trying to save Muslim lives by supporting the neocons is like shooting yourself in the face to cure a toothache.
    Need anymore metaphor?

    Tripe. Weak, effete Obama and fellow minded pofftahs in US/Europe created/create more.

    I don’t know. Being a neocon, I am too illiterate to notice the 2009/12/11 in the address bar or the This entry was posted on December 11, 09 at 1:31 pm at the bottom of the post. If you ever find out someday using your superior liberal insight, please tell me.

    Yeah, how about one that demonstrates the neolib solution to jihad? Kind of like, ‘Addressing religiously motivated jihad that will not accept anything but the complete subjugation of all people to political Islam by repeatedly giving in to their demands is like discouraging prison shower rape by bending over to pick up the soap.’

    Or the liberal path to world peace? Kind of like, ‘Not going to war for peace is like exactly letting the South keep its slavery, letting Hitler kill the Jews and letting Rwanda continue its genocide.’

    Going to war for peace actually is like f***ing for virginity… The USA goes and royally screws jihadists so that they cannot continue raping the local Muslim populace. But I believe Team America already did that one better…
