Poll Stunner: These American Blacks OK with Violent Attacks

World Net Daily, September 1, 2011

The most dangerous Muslims in America may be black converts to Islam, according to a shocking new poll by the Pew Research Center.

African-American Muslims tend to hold the most violent views among U.S. Muslims surveyed by Pew in a poll released this week.

Fully 28 percent of U.S.-born black Muslim respondents said “suicide bombings and other violence against civilians” can be justified sometimes or at least in rare cases. That compares with 9 percent of foreign-born Muslims who hold the same view.

Pew also found that 11 percent of black Muslims living in the U.S. have a favorable opinion of al-Qaida–more than double the share of U.S. Muslims overall who hold that view. Another 21 percent of black Muslims hold only mildly unfavorable views of the terrorist organization responsible for attacking America 10 years ago; while 56 percent of that segment of the Muslim population hold very unfavorable views.

The survey results are troubling, because U.S. officials say al-Qaida in recent years has stepped up its efforts to recruit African-Americans to target the homeland for terrorist attacks. English-speaking blacks do not fit the prevailing Middle Eastern terrorist profile, officials say, and al-Qaida recruiters believe they have a better chance of slipping through security checkpoints.

In July, black convert Carlos Bledsoe, aka Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, was sentenced to life in prison for gunning down two U.S. Army soldiers outside a Little Rock, Ark., Army recruiting station.

Bledsoe said he didn’t commit any crime when he shot Army Pvt. William Long to death and wounded Army Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula as they took a smoke break on the morning of June 1, 2009.

During an interrogation session, Bledsoe told Little Rock police and the FBI that the shooting was a holy war and that he was not guilty of murder.

    “The most dangerous Muslims in America may be black converts to Islam, according to a shocking new poll by the Pew Research Center.”

    “Shocking?” To whom? Why should anyone be “shocked” by a black propensity toward violence?

    If they’d interviewed some non-Mohammedan blacks, they presumably would have been even more “shocked.”

  • Eric

    Bin Laden could have recruited countless black converts to his terror organization but he didn’t. Bin Laden, like most Arabs, held very unfavorable views of the ability of Africans in general and didn’t believe that black American Muslim converts were true Muslims.

  • Detroit WASP

    I’m not stunned by this at all. In fact, this would have been my first guess.

    Blacks convert to Islam as a way of rejecting the USA, white culture, and even western law while they live here under the blanket of freedom and sponge off of the system as much as possible.

    Black Americans who convert to Islam are generally pretty radical. That isn’t a new flash…..I hope.

  • Jeddermann.

    If these are Black Muslims, also known as the Nation of Islam, they are not true Muslims. Are heretics according to orthodox Islam. After Muhammad there CANNOT be another prophet of GOD, so says the Sunni and Shia forms of Islam. Ahmadi Islam preachers another prophet but all Ahmadi are considered heretics.

    Most prison converts ARE Black Muslim!

  • Cliff Yablonski

    In America, black converts to Islam occurs primarily in prisons, so this comes as no big surprise.

  • Question Diversity

    This does not surprise me. A post-9/11 black American convert to Islam I think is far more an anti-white political act than it is a religious or spiritual act.

  • Peejay in Frisco

    “Black Muslims are the most dangerous Muslims in the United States”. Nobody should be surprised at this. Does anyone remember the Zebra Murder spree, and who orchestrated it? I see them all the time. Bad thoughts come into my brain when I do. Three of them killed three armored car guards in a botched robbery attempt in Alameda County, CA about 20 years ago.

  • Anonymous

    Blacks are inherently a violent race. It’s no surprise they would be drawn to such a violent religion.

  • Bill R

    Gee what an insightful, profound story. Ducks tend to be wetter than sparrows. Of course black muslims tend to be more violent. BLACKS tend to be more violent in all regards to other races. BLACKS tend to be borderline retarded in IQ, so who better to embrace the retarded, hateful rhetoric and teachings of the “religion of peace” eh?

  • Proud person of non-color

    I’ve said on many other threads in the past about blacks and Islam. They are attracted to the fanaticism about the extreme elements. It absolves them of all “dey sinz”. I crack up at the moron convert in such denial that he’s in. He’s not guilty of murder. Case in point. He is not taking any responsibilty for his actions. This is not unique to Islam, but it is unique to Islamic terrorists. No responsibilities for anything they do.

    As far as foreign muslims recruiting black muslims in America. That’s not going to work so well either. The authorities will do background checks and see that they won’t be fit to walk five feet in an airport w/o sheriffs around. The terrorists have a better chance at finding 72 live virgins willing to sleep with them in a 24 hour period here in America then they would at recruited a black Muslim who would be successful at carrying out a massive attack.

    Eric #2: If Arab Sunni Muslims do not believe that Aryan Persian Shiites are true Muslims, what do you think that their opinions of Black Muslim converts are?

    Coincidentally, Che Guevarra thought that Blacks were inept as Soliders in the Socialist Revolution, and said as much, when he tried to train African Communist guerrillas with Cuban Soldiers.

    Don’t ever say I didn’t warn you because I did many years ago.

    Thomas Jefferson also warned you but you knew it all.

    Now look at the price you are paying for your decisions:

    Abraham Lincoln Quote

    “I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races – that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.”

    Abraham Lincoln

    Fourth Debate with Stephen A. Douglas at Charleston, Illinois, September 18, 1858

  • Nick

    “The proportion of African American Muslims expressing very unfavorable opinions of al Qaeda has increased 17 points from 39% four years ago. More foreign-born Muslims also express very unfavorable opinions of al Qaeda than in 2007 (75% today, 63% then).”

    So four out of six black Muslims in America has either a favorable or neutral view of AQ? Funny that the Feds have become so nervous about “white extremist” domestic terrorism since 2008. Are they equally concerned about the Nation of Islam and its splinter groups? Of course not, that wouldn’t correspond to the SLPC’s anti-white narrative.

    I knew a Black muslim soldier when I was in the Army. He once told a group of us over lunch in the mess hall that he would not hesitate to kill us in the event of a race war or a war between christians and muslims.

  • Anonymous

    No surprise at all. The Muslim extremist are doing what other extremists and despotic leaders around the world have done for years, recruiting them to fight and wage violence for their cause because the blacks are so easily manipulated and have an irrepressible attraction to violence. The blacks are too simple to comprehend that they are not truly accepted and that to the Muslim extremists they are nothing more than expendable pawns.

  • rockman

    It is obvious that people are unaware of the difference between black Muslims and Moslems. Black muslims believe that the white race is a thousand years old and was created by a evil wizard. The whiter you are the more evil you are. so violence against whites is fighting evil. Read the old crime book “Zebra” about the black muslim killers in San Francisco. My father was doing criminal investigations for the state of Calif and was furious over the state policy that covered up the race based killing of whites in that state. They felt that telling the people the real state of things would spark a race war as the white folk would react violently to being killed by black folk in large numbers. The state openly lied to the media about murders. Read the book above for an eye opening account of race based murders of white people.

    WRONG, wrong, wrong.

    Black “Muslims” are hardly a great threat. They are dim-witted and angry.

    They can not do anything in an organized fashion. Their trade is impulsive violence, as is printed upon their DNA. They are not political. They are not philosohpical. They are NOT religious.

    They hate whites. This is not new.

    They are also NOT the suicide bomber type; they live for “Gibs muh dat.”

    This is a non- starter.

    Black Muslims are absolute charlatans and most are just simple criminals who commit every type of fraud, drug smuggling, murder, etc. Actually, even though not black, per se, in his last days, bin Ladin enthusiastically wanted to recruit Somali Americans, converts to orthodox Islam in prison, and Hispanics as known had any stack in the American Dream or America. They hate us and we should be suspicious of them at best, as they are our enemy. Remember that criminal organization called CAIR, they have recruited plenty of Somalis, blacks and Hispanics to their cause. Thankfully, at least some of our FBI people are committed, as those bums at CAIR have been put away for long periods in the ADX or Marion. Thank God. But who knows what these people are planning, and God Forbid, as the President infamously attended the Nation of Islam services before. He is too be looked at suspiciously as well. Who knows what he is thinking.

  • Eurobeing

    I have seen this Carlos thing on the news and the smirk on his face in infuriating. He is tryly proud of what he has done.

    Blacks are blindly envious of the white technological creations and of our systems of government. They will destroy them at all costs because to live with them is to suffer the realization that they cannot create anything of lasting value.

  • Daniel

    I’m sure that American blacks will be happy to shot as many whites as the can from a safe distance but just try getting a black to strap on a bomb and blow himself up.

    Blacks don’t commit themselves to a cause if it means self sacrifice.

    When blacks would attack the British army in Africa they would only do so after the witch doctors got them stoned and promised them they could not be hurt.

    American blacks who are attracted to Islam because they believe that Arabs have treated black with more justice than Caucasians of European origins reveal their ignorance of history. The Arab slave trade began centuries before the European slave trade. It continued for decades later until it was smashed in the late nineteenth century by European military action. Moreover, Arab slave traders usually castrated male slaves, and even cut off the male organs of black slaves. Many blacks died from this cruel practice.

  • margaret

    Thanks for the quote Honest Abe.

    I doubt Abe was any more honest when he made that speech than was Hubert Humphrey when he stood on the floor of the senate during the 1968 debate on affirmative action and claimed that not one White person would ever be discriminated against after the 1968 affirmative action Civil Rights for All but Whites law was passed.

    Ted Kennedy proclaimed during the 1965 immigration act debates that the ethnic composition of the country would not change because of that act.

    Abe also promised the White workers that he would deport the blacks somewhere during the 1964 campaign. Never happened and would not have happened had Lincoln lived. The central American and Haitian Ambassadors when approached about relocation said absolutely not.

    Abe was a politician . Like the rest of them he said what he had to say to get elected for both terms.

    Speaking of politicians, I saw a headline in my local anti White propaganda rag aka the local newspaper. “Perry meets with evangelicals, promises anti abortion measures if elected.”

    Yeah right, every Republican since Reagan has fervently promised the anti abortion lobby that they will cut down on abortions if elected. The anti abortion lobby pours its heart and soul and money into electing these liars. Once elected nothing is done about abortion.

  • Mike Harrigan

    Well I for one am indeed shocked at these findings. ONLY 28 percent of black muslims support violence against innocent civilians? I would think the whole world would be shocked by that low number.

    Islam is a religion that requires a lot of discipline and adherence to many rules (including namaz).

    These are qualities which are hard to come by in blacks. They are too self-indulgent for that.

    Arabs don’t trust blacks, and the reasons are not all that hard to understand either.

    Blacks converting to Islam is just a political fashion statement than anything else. True Islam believers would actually be embarrassed by it. In their opinion, it would amount to a mockery and caricaturization of their religion (not to say that Islam is on a high pedestal even without that).

  • Peejay in Frisco

    Rockman #16: I remember the Zebra Murder spree. The Police did indeed cover up the racial nature of the killings. But they did it so as to get to the bottom of it. In the end, (to a degree) they did. Was your father Lou Calabro? I met him a few times. Solid good man.

    Maybe the Arabs knew the black psyche/genetics much better than us White European peoples. Look at the absolute cruelty that blacks are inflicting on Whites all over the world since they have been freed. WE are the ones in chains/bondage today. So what does that tell you?

  • Anonymous

    And exactly how many of these supposedly radicalized black American Muslims are there? In absolute numbers, how many are there? As a percentage of the overall black population? Hard data like that might help scope out whether this is an actual issue or just hype.

    Also, the poll apparently included suicide bombings in the same question asking if other violence against civilians can ever be justified. Virtually every week, our own military kills civilians as it fights insurgent in Afghanistan, yet few Americans of any race are speaking out against the practice. So it appears that a significant percentage of whites also agree that violence against civilians is sometimes justified.

  • Spartan24

    Arab Muslims definitely do not think much of blacks. In fact the Arabic word for “slave” and “black” is the same. In fact Arabs are about the most racist people out there since Islam teaches them that Arabs are the best of all people. What black (and white converts to Islam) need to understand is that you will hear one thing to your face and another thing in Arabic behind your back. They need convert men as cannon fodder and convert women (preferably white) as baby making machines.

    I know what he is thinking. After his two terms he is going to get filthy rich like Bill Clinton. Most as as payoff from Wall Street. Please AmReners stop believing Obama is the Enemy. He is not! He is only the symptom of what the powers that be feel what is an appobiate president at this time. Just as they care less whether it will be Obama or Perry.

    As fas Black Muslims they are just run of the mill Blacks with bow ties. Blacks have low suicide rates, they will not be doing any bombing soon. As long as the handouts continue.

    Well, I’m at least a little surprised. Everyone knows they’re more disposed toward violence, but I didn’t know they were also cool with a pariah terrorist organization’s violence, even when they were just being unexcitedly polled.

    Blacks are the most violent of the races – so where is the surprise in this? We need to infiltrate black muslim groups, and start taking them OUT one by one. If a breeder finds a mean pup in a litter, he gets rid of that pup by putting him down; I believe we should do the same with black muslims. There’s no way any good can ever come from them – and if they can’t benefit this country, they don’t need to be in it.

  • Jack in Chicago

    I’ve lived around urban Blacks for about half of my life – in Chicago, 3 blocks away from the NOI mansions, Obama’s mansion.

    Here are some key points to remember:

    Religion isn’t that important for Black males – they’ll drift around from one church/faith to another and behave in the same ways – thus Jeremiah Wright’s Black Liberation Theology Christian church is the same as the Nation of Islam. Both feature charismatic Black men who enjoy ranting and raving and threatening White people in front of passionate Black crowds and they come up with wild science fiction, historical distortions to justify/entertain their crowds – stuff like White people being created by an evil wizard or Jesus being a poor Black man being oppressive by evil White men – the Romans.

    It’s best not to take these things too seriously – and simply treat them as misbehaving children that need discipline. Never try to reason with these types, or try to treat their wild rantings with any respect.

    And most of all, never, ever show any fear. In response to these threats, theological hate Whitey nonsense – the best approach is to suggest that they:

    “Bin Laden, like most Arabs, held very unfavorable views of the ability of Africans in general and didn’t believe that black American Muslim converts were true Muslims.”

    Bin Laden said in that video that was captured: “even the abd are aware of what happened [9/11]”. Abd is black house slave in Arabic. That is how bin Laden and his cohorts refer to the Bantu. As had the classical Arab throughout history. The black Chicago news reporter Clarence Page had a friend fluent in Arabic go over the recording of the words of bin Laden over and over to make sure what was heard was true. So we must not totally dismiss the Bantu in American and his understanding of Islam. Sometimes they to find they are surprised and realize they are wrong. The right on Islamic brothers aren’t so right on.

    Lyndon Johnson? Not according to some..

    How about Emmanuel Cellar, Jacob Javits and all the rest working on this Act and don’t forget they have been at it for 30 or so years BEFORE 1965. Of course there were some “whites” who sold out, there were some who were blackmailed, and there were some who received dire threats on their own lives and their families lives. Most of us already know how that game is played. Just ask some of the honest ones in Congress (maybe a couple of them left) and those in the past that have been railroaded into prison on trumped up charges.

  • Sincerely Concerned

    To #28: your comments about civilian deaths in Afghanistan (and for that manner, in any war, anywhere) indicates you don’t understand war and collateral damage. It is SAD and sickening that civilians die during wars, but it is impossible to eradicate terrorists going door-to-door all the time. We tried that in Baghdad after the initial shock and awe and it didn’t work, prolonging that situation far further than it should’ve gone. In Vietnam, the Viet Cong cowards hit in underground tunnels like ants so we had to cover the jungle with bombs and napalm just to get to where we could flush them out and overall 58,000 Americans died in the process. We never should have been over there but we were and many, many innocent people died. War is hell, period.
