See this map, each red dot was a terror attack:

Do you see the empty country in the middle? That's Poland. Isn't it an amazing coincidence that they have no Muslims there, and have also had no terror attacks?

Yes! Certainly a coincidence that the Muslim population in a country is in direct correlation with the level of terrorism.

Oh well let me propose a solution.

Get my ass and every other Muslim in a gas chamber and kill us all. There.
Now you can be like Poland.

Not that old chestnut. That map is misleading for two reasons. Firstly the size of the dots are massive. This gives the imprrssion that terrorist attacks are more widespread and frequent than they actaully are. Secondly this isn't Islamic related attacks. It is all terrorist related attacks which is why Northern Ireland (IRA and UVF) and Northern Spain (Basque separatists) appear to be black spots, yet have nothing to do with Muslims. You also see Mafia activity in Italy and Sicily and fallout from the breakup of the former Yugoslavia. And for the record, Poland has around 20,000 Muslims.

The places with the greatest levels of terrorism in Europe are NI, Corsica, the Basque Country and eastern Ukraine. None of the separatist groups there are in any way connected to Islam. There clearly isn't a direct correlation because none of those areas have a significantly larger Muslim population.

Poland is based.
They accept no refugees? They get no terror attacks in return.

So why is Northern Ireland one giant red blob when it has essentially no Muslims?

As others have said, this appears to be a map of all terrorist activity - not terrorist activity specifically carried out by Muslims.

It's an interesting question though to ask why Poland specifically hasn't had terrorism.

Simple. They don't have Islam there. No Islam = No terrorism (except the IRA example that you people cling on to so dearly, but that didn't exactly affect the whole of Europe did it?)

> No Islam = No Terrorism
> Northern Ireland has little/no Islam
> Northern Ireland has had terrorism

Conclusion? You're a moron. You don't seem to understand that terrorism literally isn't bound to a religion and that other, non-Islamic terrorist attacks have happened in the past. Be it IRA or fanatics.

A lady on BBC earlier today was saying that Italy is the only country in Europe not to have had a terror attack in recent times. Now which source do I believe?
