Those that commit aggression in the name of Islam, represent Muslims no more than Anders Breivik represents Christianity or Nazis represent Europe. According to Pew, the overwhelming majority of Muslims condemn terrorism and violence done in their name.

Watch CAIR's press confrence condeming the violence in Libya here.

The blog below contains articles highlighting condemnation of violence by the Muslim community, disqualifying the statement that most Muslims are terrorist and most terrorists are Muslims, and bring to light the double standard that the Muslim community faces.

According to the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security:


• Fourteen Muslim-Americans were indicted for violent terrorist plots in 2012, down from 21 the year before, bringing the total since 9/11 to 209, or just under 20 per year.
• The number of plots also dropped from 18 in 2011 to 9 in 2012.
• Meanwhile, the United States suffered approximately 14,000 murders in 2012. 
• Since 9/11, Muslim-American terrorism has claimed 33 lives in the United States, out of more than 180,000 murders committed in the United States during this period.
• Over the same period, more than 200 Americans have been killed in political violence by white supremacists and other groups on the far right, according to a recent study published by the Combating Terrorism Center at the U.S. Military Academy.
• Sixty-six Americans were killed in mass shootings by non-Muslims in 2012 alone, twice as many fatalities as from Muslim-American terrorism in all 11 years since 9/11.
