Reader comment on item: Europe's Threat to the West

Submitted by DAVID (United States), Jun 3, 2004 at 16:25

While it may be true that the majority of European terrorism may be from the Muslim community, they are strongly supported by the average European, from the politicians on down - especially if it's against Jews.

Remember the recent poll that showed at least 59% of Europeans believe that Israel is a threat to world peace (i.e., supporting suicide bombers against Jews). 59% of Europeans are not Muslims. Most Europeans in the ISM are not Muslim. Most Europeans actively advocating disinvestment from, and cultural boycotts against Israel are not Muslim. And on and on. Don't put the entire blame on Muslims. European non-Muslims are just as terroritistic. By the way, Sheikh Abdel Hadi Palazzi head of the Italian Muslim Association is very much suppportive of Israel.
