HOW MANY MUSLIM TERRORISTS ARE THERE, REALLY?

I found this partial article on the new york post website.
Interesting is the fact that the majority of muslims claim these terrorists do not represent "true islam."
Now, I can't prove that those percentages listed below are truly accurate, but it does shed some light on the fact that there are literally tens or hundreds of millions of deranged killers just itching for a chance to detonate their suicide vest to become a "martyr (AKA suicide bomber)".
Don't you think that this is turning into way more than just a minority or fringe group? Is it possible that so many muslims are "mis-interpreting" the quran? Or are they actually doing exactly what their holy book says?
Why are the pals so intent on killing each other in Lebanon? Why bite the hand that feeds you?
If muslims are all one, "when one hurts the whole muslim world hurts," where are Saudi arabia, and all the middle east countries? do these nations support the pals? it doesn't appear that way to me. Looks like more hypocrisy to me. Just more of the same old bullsh**t of not being able to place blame, where blame is due. I guess it's just easier to point the finger somewhere else for ALL of your problems?
So, why are younger Muslims turning on their countrymen?
The answer, the blame, lies with their educational diet. The jihadi recruitment videos they can download on YouTube. The jihadi social networks on MySpace. The apologist lessons they consume in p.c. schools.
The numbers should be a wake-up call, not another excuse for the mainstream media to downplay the threat of homegrown jihad.
The poll comes on the heels of the Fort Dix jihadi terror bust involving young, American-raised Muslims and the conviction this week of Muslim doctor Rafiq Abdus Sabir - born in Harlem, based in Florida - who had pledged loyalty to al Qaeda and vowed to treat injured al Qaeda fighters so they could return to Iraq to kill Americans.
The tiny minority of jihadi sympathizers aren't just sitting around stewing harmlessly about their beliefs. They are recruiting, proselytizing, plotting and growing.
I'm reminded of a similar poll conducted in Indonesia last fall. One in 10 Indonesian Muslims were found to support bombings in defense of Islam.
They took the news a little more seriously in "moderate" Indonesia. One in 10 in Indonesia, you see, equal 19 million Muslims for violent jihad. That's just Indonesia.
Recent polling in Britain found that 13 percent of British Muslims believe the London subway bombers were righteous "martyrs," and 7 percent approve of suicide bombing attacks on civilians in Britain in some circumstances.
Now, add that to the 16 percent of French Muslims, 16 percent of Spanish Muslims, 7 percent of German Muslims, 28 percent of Egyptian Muslims, 14 percent of Pakistani Muslims, and 46 percent of Nigerian Muslims who told Pew last summer that "violence against civilian targets in order to defend Islam" can be justified "often/sometimes."
A few fringe jihadists here, a few fringe jihadists there, and soon you're talking about bloody real numbers.
