Migration Warning: Expert Warns 50 Million Muslims Are Willing To Back Violence And Terror
Posted by addisethiopia on February 13, 2017
A MIGRATION expert warns that there are more than 50 million Muslims willing to accept violence and support those who carry out terror attacks to defend their religion.
In an interview with a German news website he claimed that of these 500 million conservative Muslims, at least – and probably more – than 50 million are willing to sanction violence.
The migration researcher stressed that not every one of them was ready to exert violence directly.
But he added: “They support the radicals, they encourage them and provide them shelter or simply keep their mouths shut when they observe radicalisation”.
He said he considers his own estimate of 50 million “an understatement”, citing studies that show eight percent of German Muslims agreed to the use of violence against “infidels”.
In his own country 11 per cent of Muslims agreed with the statement: “There are situations in which it is acceptable for me from the perspective of my religion, that I use violence”.
In several Islamic countries, 14 per cent of local Muslims think suicide attacks against innocents are “sometimes” or “often” justified to defend Islam, said Koopmans, citing a study by the US based Pew Research Centre.
“I’m very conservative with my estimate of 50 million violent Muslims,” added Prof Koopmans.
The expert sees a “clear difference” between anti-Islam baiting and justified criticism of Islam.
He went on: “There is nothing wrong with foreign cultures, as long as they are looking for the connection to the majority in society and actually enrich our countries.
“But those who are here to spread their medieval beliefs, which are unfortunately widespread in Islamic countries, must be met with zero tolerance”.
He stressed that the EU should be much more careful to let suspected Islamists have uncontrolled travel to and within Europe.
He sad refugees and migrants should be placed initially in transit zones, “as long as their identity is unclear”.
