3/4 Sentenced on Terror Charges in UK are Muslims

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.
