Pew Survey says some American Muslims support suicide bombing.

Another example of the MSM telling have the story.  Try to tell the other half and risk being called a hate monger, racist, xenophobe.

In the first-ever, nationwide survey of Muslim Americans, the Pew
Research Center suggests that 26 percent of the 2.35 million Muslims in
the U.S. believe there are circumstances in which suicide bombings are
acceptable.

Nearly half (47 percent) think of themselves as
Muslim first, American second. Among those under the age of 30, 13
percent believe suicide bombings to defend their religion are sometimes
justified; 11 percent say this tactic is rarely justified; two percent
say it can often be justified.

The Pew Research Center
interviewed 1,050 randomly selected Muslim American adults aged 18 and
older, from Jan. 24 through April 30, 2007. Half identified themselves
as Sunni, 16 percent as Shiite. Sixty-five percent were foreign-born,
35 percent were born in the U.S.A. (three out of five of these are
converts to Islam).

So how did the MSM report the shocking and
frightening fact that there could be as many as 610,000 people living
among us – the population of Charlotte, NC – who can justify terrorism
against American civilians under certain circumstances?

A scan
of the headlines shows that some played it straight, some downplayed
the ramifications of the survey and some – bizarrely – chose to ignore
the threat of homegrown terrorism altogether and focus instead on how
“happy” and “assimilated” U.S. Muslims are (note the National Public
Radio and Voice of America headlines; your tax dollars at work):

  1. The important fact left out here is: who do they support suicide bombing against? The US or Israel? Probably Israel. Given that Israel has stolen and continues to steal land from Palestinians and inflict a gradual ethnic cleansing on them, I think that suicide bombings against Israel are understandable.
