In late August, Pew Research released a report on Muslims in America. It's happily titled Muslim Americans: No Signs of Growth in Alienation or Support for Extremism which gives the impression that all is well. Upon further review, I found, though, there's significantly higher support for Islamic extremism among the black Muslims polled! 40% of native-born black Muslim Americans reported they knew there was a great deal and/or a fair amount of extremist support in their communities compared to 20% of all U.S. Muslims, which is bad enough having 1 in 5 Muslims know of this kind of support in America. Support for suicide bombings and for al Qaeda was doubled for the native-born black Muslims than for all U.S. Muslims. Why? Something appears to be very wrong.
Coincidentally, perhaps even sinister, this could be am indication - a marker - of a widespread Islamist game-plan that mimicks Osama Bin Laden's Anti-U.S. Strategy: Exploit Minority Converts we heard about from the raid on his home in Pakistan. His goal and, I assume, that of his followers and sympathizers was to "specifically recruit African-American Muslim converts to carry out attacks on the homeland. The goal was to not only kill and maim in the actual operations, but to create a divisiveness that would cause more damage than al Qaeda could ever hope to do on their own!"
On the other hand, maybe, I'm reading too much into one poll.

But, if this poll is accurate, there could be a national security threat lurking.
