One-quarter of American Muslims support terrorism

Many would tout this story as "Majority of Muslims Opposed to Suicide Bombings", but the truth is much more troubling.
A story in the Pennisula On-line wrote,

About one-quarter of young American Muslims believe to some extent that suicide bombings can be justified to defend Islam, while nearly 80 per cent of all US Muslims reject such attacks, a survey showed yesterday.

This is possibly the most appalling poll regarding American Muslims to date. What it really conveys is that a potential quarter of all American Muslims are terrorists. It confounds me that so many people still herald that Islam is a religion of peace. Perhaps that's only true for the marginal Muslims.
