Duke study shows number of Muslim-Americans involved in terrorism sharply declined, overblown by media

A new study released today by the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security at Duke University shows that the number of Muslim-Americans who perpetrated or were arrested for terrorist acts declined sharply in 2010.

Conclusion to the Report

Muslim-American terrorism makes news. Out of the thousands of acts of violence that occur in the United States each year, an efficient system of government prosecution and media coverage brings Muslim-American terrorism suspects to national attention, creating the impression — perhaps unintentionally — that Muslim-American terrorism is more prevalent than it really is.

Upturns in the pace of Muslim-American terrorism are particularly newsworthy, and have driven much public debate over the past two years. This report documents a downturn in the pace of Muslim-American terrorism — it remains to be seen whether this is accorded a similar level of attention, and whether the level of public concern will ratchet downward along with the number of terrorism suspects.
