Just A Tiny Minority Of Half A Million Jihadists?

By Daniel Greenfield – Re-Blogged From Freedom Outpost

Islamic terrorists are a “tiny minority of extremists”. That’s the message we’ve been hearing ever since 9/11. They’re only a handful of “guys in a cave” or a few “lone wolves” radicalized over the internet.

Editor’s Note

With the start of a new year, we once again examine the state of the global jihadist movement. Shared from Threat Lens, Stratfor’s unique protective intelligence product, the following column includes excerpts from a comprehensive forecast available to Threat Lens subscribers.

For anyone caught up in this “web” wrongly, there is no recourse contained in the legislation to “challenge the status as a non-person involuntarily trapped inside US borders by order of the secretary of state.”
