    He would have been correct. The lines are a bit blurry though, even for those who bother reading up about whats going on.

      That suggests that 70% of muslims in this country are moderate Sufi Muslims who are against any form of terrorism, and 30% at least sympathise with Islamist points of view.
      I never said Islamism was followed by a tiny minority. It clearly isn't.
      Those prepared to actually commit acts of terror are however going to be a much smaller number.

      Its all down to numbers though, even if only 1% of 2 million Muslims is prepared to commit to or support a terror cell, thats 20,000 people MI5 need to keep an eye on.

        Yes I think that's a more nuanced analysis than mine. I take your point.
