Just think, when you walk past a mosque of 200 people getting out, only between 25 and 50 of them are obsessed with killing you.

Not likely as the vast majority of terrorists are in one small area of the world and more likely to kill their own Brothers and Sisters.

The Terrorists are a much greater Danger to Muslims than they are to non-Muslims

The majority of terrorists are Sunni muslims, (70%) and they have no country boarders.
Shia is second. 20%
All the other religions, political affiliation cultures, etc make up the remaining 10%.

If we glance at the terror meter, they come from all over Islam and non-Islamic countries.

We in the states, are insulated by an ocean

I disagree for the following reasons...

1. They are not confined to a small area of the World as they constitute 23% of the Worlds population.
2. Islam is the dominant religion in the Middle East, North Africa, the Horn of Africa, the Sahel, and some parts of Asia. Large communities of Muslims are also found in China, the Balkans, India and Russia. The largest Muslim population in a country is in Indonesia.
3. A December 2011 Pew Research Center Study found more Muslims in the United Kingdom than in Lebanon and more in China than in Syria. So the large majorities of Muslims say in The United Kingdom and China are likely not killing their own adherents as frequently as they are non-Muslims.
4. Given these facts it seems Jim_a49's numbers may be reasonable.

A quote from the Book The Haj by Leon Uris...
"So before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world. And all of us against the infidel."



I don't know about you Sir but I fall squarely into the Infidel category.
