Liberal talk show host Alan Colmes dismissed the idea that Muslims are th only ones responsible for terrorist plots against the U.S.

When Monica Crowley brought up the fact that all of the 126 people arrested for terrorist related acts were Muslims Colmes said that was only because we were targeting Muslims.

The government is targeting potential terrorists period no matter what their faith is.

But based on a recent survey of Muslim students in the U.K. a little profiling may not be a bad idea.

From the Daily Mail

Around a third of young British Muslims favour killing in the name of Islam, according to a survey revealed by the WikiLeaks’ publication of U.S. diplomatic cables.

A survey of 600 Muslim students at 30 universities throughout Britain found that 32 per cent of Muslim respondents believed killing in the name of religion is justified.

A U.S. diplomatic cable from January 2009 quoted a poll by the Centre for Social Cohesion as saying 54 per cent wanted a Muslim party to represent their world view in Parliament and 40 per cent want Muslims in the UK to be under Sharia law.

The survey results, revealed by WikiLeaks’ release of thousands of U.S. diplomatic cables, suggests increasing radicalisation among Britain’s young Muslims.

This is part of a disturbing trend that has already seen Britain come under more terrorist attempts in recent years and could lead to a jump in attempts in the U.S. where security is not as tight as it is in the U.K.
