We've all heard the complaints from "moderate" Muslim quarters about terms like "Islamofascism" and "Islamic terrorism" and so on. Such terms, they say, "unfairly associate" the act of terrorism with a single religion.
But one need only pick randomly any terror act or, in the case of the JFK plot, a prevented terror act — and look at the numbers involved. Here we had four Muslim men, two from Trinidad and two from Guyana. Let's look in the CIA World Factbook at the population breakdown in Guyana, specifically the religious groups that the country is comprised of:
In other words, anyone from that 35% Hindu make-up of the country could have been out to get us. Someone from the 50% Christian population could have been up to some mischief with bombs. (After all, America's unpopularity among the countries of the world is across the board, and it crosses religious boundaries.) But in a country that's 90% not Muslim, amazingly the two arrested Guyanese plotters came from that 10% Muslim population!
