3/4 Sentenced on Terror Charges in UK are Muslims

muslims uk

Muslims make up less than 5 percent of the UK, but 73 percent of terror convictions leading to prison sentences.

The UK Home Office Data, released on 12th September 2013, some selected statistics for the period 2001 — 2012 in the United Kingdom

More than 57% of arrests for terrorism offences were Muslims. The figure is certainly more than 57% because there is an “unknown religion” category of 36%, which presumably includes some of the Islamic faith.

More than 73% of those sentenced to prison for terrorism were Muslims. Again, the figure is certainly higher as it includes an “unknown religion” category of 9%.

Unknown religion? A peaceful one no doubt.

Given that Muslims in the UK are 4.6% of the total (Pew Research), they’re certainly, as Rod Liddle says, “punching way above their weight”

Just imagine what those numbers will look like when they’re up to 10 percent. Also remember that the Muslim settler population in the UK increased some 74 percent since 2001.

That 4.6 percent is the final tally, but the statistics take place beginning at a time when the Muslim settler population was a fraction of that.

    Seventy-three percent? C’mon, it’s got to be more than that! Either they’re massaging the statistics or they’re letting Muslims off for politically correct reasons.

      Or defining terrorism broadly

      • Softly Bob

        I think they are defining terrorism broadly.

      • Jakareh

        Broadly for non-Muslim and narrowly for “Asians”.

        • objectivefactsmatter

          Like the terrorists that picket in front of mosques.

  • GSR

    How about in our country? Are most terror convictions (surely committed by mostly Muslims) carried out by foreign born or native born Muslims?
    My point? Immigration is how they come here. Mostly legal, family-chain immigration.

    Proof-postive the Brits are racist xenophobing islamophobes. How day they indict Muslims for exercising the their Allah-given right to rule over the Kuffar?

    • DogmaelJones1

      No, Yuval, the Brits are not racist xenophobes. The statistics reflect on the ideology, Islam, and Islam isn’t a “race.” It’s a killer creed. Get a clue.


        Yuval was being ironic – he knows as well as you and I that Islam is indeed a “killer creed”.

        • DogmaelJones1

          Sorry. The “irony” wasn’t apparent.

    Look at India, highest population of muslimes in any “non-muslim” state and leads the world in islam0nazi terror stats.

  • Aizino Smith


    What is the Breakdown for the other terrorist convictions?

    -EDL members protesting by holding marches?

    • defcon 4

      The IRA hasn’t carried out any terrorist attacks in over a decade. Additionally one stated goal of the IRA was to minimize civilian casualties — while islam0nazi terror has always had the opposite goal.
