France has been the target of the most devastating recent terrorist attacks because, apparently, almost half of young French Muslims support suicide bombing, probably the most extreme act of terrorism (compare with the Japanese Kamikaze pilots, who represented the Japanese Empire’s final, most desperate lashing at an overpowering enemy).

But a November, 2015 Pew Poll found that while a large percentage of Muslim youths in the West support suicide bombing, and out of those the largest percentage live in France, the numbers in the US are only somewhat better.

“The higher levels of support for suicide bombing seen among young American Muslims resembles patterns found among Muslims in Europe, where Muslims also constitute a minority population,” the Pew poll concluded. “In Great Britain, France and Germany, Muslims under the age of 30 are consistently the least likely to say that suicide bombing is never justified.

“In other words, the share who think suicide bombing against civilians can ever be justified, even if rarely, is higher among those younger than 30 compared with those who are older. About a quarter (26%) of younger US Muslims say suicide bombing can at least rarely be justified, 17 percentage points higher than the proportion of Muslims ages 30 and older (9%) who share that view. The age gap is about as wide in Great Britain (18 percentage points) but somewhat narrower in Germany (12 points), France (11 points) and Spain (7 points).”

  1. i just can't for the life of me why,why we don't buy ships with muslim only crew ,and staff and guests .make it muslim only . martyr sail to open water and just kill each other .it would really save a lot of hurt and innocent loving lives

  2. Polls! How they determine information is beyond me. But, let's go with the numbers they say. If all the countries gather up the percentage of potential suicide bombers, put them in a vacant lot in the middle of the desert & let them finish their committment to blowing themselves up! Allah's waiting!

  3. These youths live off social security. Their parents screw day and night. Families average 8-10. In France they do not have to work. A family of 10 receives subsides amounting to those of a bank president. In a few years they will empty the coffers of France and as well those of Scandinavia. They will be so numerous they will grab the powers and kick their hosts into the sea if not abysses.

  4. Completely insane. What do you mean by ALL UK MUSLIMS , I'm a Muslim from the UK and no one has ever asked me anything about whether I support suicide bombing… which I don't. Period. Even If I wanted to I couldn't because my religible prohibits me from doing so. Do you even know the punishment there is in the hereafter for taking ones own life as well as wrongfully hurting others.
