If this is an innaccurate account of Muslim history please speak up.
General thrust of militant Islam seems about right, but some numbers are wrong, IIRC. There are about 5 million Muslims in France which has a total population of 60 million, ~ 8.3%. Fifteen of the Sept. 11 plot came from Saudi Arabia. The other four were Egyptians.

You know I have been wondering lately about when I was a kid visiting the Southern Phillipines it was during Pres Marcos time.
The southern Islands were over run with Gorillas who the natives supported because they hated Marcos and his over taxing and land stealing.
Now I am wondering if these "Gorrillas" were Muslims. Being milky white skinned I was told never to go out alone without an escort male from the family. This was 23yrs ago on the Island of Samar which is down just above Mindenao.
The Gorrillas were known to slaughter families of wealth in Northern P.I. and it got so bad that the woman who raised me said that it would never be safe for me to visit ever again.
I heard they killed Mr. White who had dual citizenship and he was the sole gas supplier on Samar. White dude who lived most of his life on Samar.
A nurse who helped me with KV at one time also new of the Gorrillas as she was a missionary in Mendenao (sp).
Where these Gorrillas actually early Muslims in the Phillipines?
