Still looking for the surveys that prove this.
Me too. The pro-terrorist left is trying to make this comment a truth by repeating it over and over again. Sadly, many on the right are echoing this unproven thought therefore weakening the fight against terror.
I too once believed that peaceful Muslims were outraged by terrorist acts in the name of Islam but my belief has weakened due to the lack of actual facts to support the claim.

After Israel, after NYC, after Beslan, after Bali, after Madrid, after London...the only one to elicit an apology, meagre "outrage" is London. Guess this was the victim they couldn't entirely "justify".
As did I, up to about 1960 or so, when I was old enough to start asking questions and digging, historically speaking.
It did not take long to get a clear picture of Islam, even before the creation of the "palestinian" state (PLO), ostensibly the source of all grievances.
No rational person with more than a casual knowlege of islam and history can either "excuse" the murdering savage culture, nor care to "understand" it. Never mind reform it.
The only language that islam knows, respects, indeed fears, is ruthless and total destruction.
