29% of British Muslims agree with 7/7 terrorist goals

From the Times of London:
A SIGNIFICANT minority of British Muslims believe they are at war with the rest of society, the largest poll of Muslims in this country suggests.

The Populus survey for The Times and ITV News has found that more than one in ten thinks that the men who carried out the London bombings of 7/7 should be regarded as “martyrs”. Sixteen per cent of British Muslims, equivalent to more than 150,000 adults, believe that while the attacks were wrong, the cause was right.

The politically correct Times tries very hard in the rest of the article to play up the majority of British Muslims who seems to be against terror. But they fail to add up the numbers of those who aren't.

16% believe that the cause was right but the attacks were wrong.
13% say the attacks were right.

So that adds up to 29% of British Muslims who openly support jihad for a worldwide Muslim 'ummah.

This is hardly a "tiny minority" - but Great Britain is still acting as if it is.
