Well they are saying they think there are about 6,000 ISIS fighters in Europe right now. Those are just the known. And just in Europe. That's a lot to me.

It is a lot. It's stupid to think there's only a few.

I think when people say "a few" they're saying that in comparison to how many are not. Like if you take a random sample of 10k Muslims and only 5 out of them are terrorist, that would be a few.

There are 1.6 BILLION Muslims in the world. 6000'= 0.00038%, and only 0.000086% of the world population in general.

I see what you are saying but Anon 3 has a point. If you do the actual math they are small in number. Overall one terrorist is too many...

I mean, even if you consider that 6000 against the population of Europe, which is about 740 million, the percentage is quite small as well..

Exactly. And the crazy part is not all of them have been Muslims long. Many many of them have been recruited recently and easily because they simply don't like the polices in the first world countries.

Yes. 6000 people in one place is a lot. 6000 people dispersed throughout an entire geographic region is a few.

That is not a lot. That is not even a packed stadium for the super bowl. There are over a billion muslims on the planet. 6k is nothing but a small community college.

Not taking them lightly, just giving you perspective.

I wouldnt doubt this, i think it is alot easier to brain wash someone that isnt really familiar with that particular religion or those that are muslim are angry within political reasons. Too many are confusing the difference between the actual religion and what they practice vs their anger based on political reasons.
