There are a few points that people should keep in mind when considering that article.
First of all, the title is talking about "Muslims terrorists" but the statistics its citing deal with Muslim-Americans
. Those are not the same things, and the difference is important. The 9/11 hijackers, for example, where Muslim terrorists but not Muslim Americans. We have every reason to believe that American Muslims are more westernized and moderate than other Muslims world-wide.
This leads the analysis to ignore attacks carried out by Muslims that are not American, like for example, the underwear bomber.
Second of all, the analysis ignores the difference in populations. The number of American Muslims is tiny compared to the number of non-Muslims, or even to the number of people that are member of the right wing of American politics.
Third of all, these analysis do not include 9/11. While the authors justify this by saying they are interested in attacks since
9/11, that doesn't change the fact that this choice is arbitrary. Why not choose "attacks in the past 20 years"? This choice alone is a big one, as it can completely change the outcome of their own numbers (even ignoring the differences in population).#TheStoopids
