This is a question that is often asked and rightly so. It is pondered over and immediately it seems that the answer is yes. However, let's investigate and bring proof before we reach conclusions.
Since the tragic events of September 11th, 2001, the perceived threat of islamic terrorism has been trumpetted from every media source. It is a natural phase for the media to repeat the same messages until the next 'big thing' comes along.
Let's answer: how dangerous is Islamic Terrorism in Europe and America?
Are muslims terrorists? Does Islam bring Terrorism?

Terrorism in the United States
According to official FBI reports, the threat of Islamic terrorism is minimal compared to other threats, like right-wing neo-Naxi groups, and the Ku Klux Klan. The following statistics were reported by the FBI in their annual report.
It is easy to see that islamic terrorism is the least occurring type of terror. Whilst it is still a big threat, it is made worse by profiteering 'islamophobes'. There's many but Pamella Geller and Robert Spencer are well known profiteers who make money by selling to the informed and by trying to scare people. Infact, Pamella Geller admitted openly that "Robert Spencer and I are organizing a joint venture to educate, elucidate and scare the bejeezus outta ya."
Since the fort hood massacre there has been 0 fatalaties due to islamic terror in America. The strange thing is that with all the negative publicity regarding islam, 2 major wars costing trillions against muslims and ongoing spending in beefing up homeland security, surely there should be a more realistic threat?
The homegrown jihadist threat in America today consists of tiny conspiracies, lone gunmen, and entrapment where the potential terrorists are given access to means of terrorism. Explicitly, the entrapment happens when PAID informants 'provide' terrorists. Being an informant and providing results is simply a means of earning more money, it is similar to working as a sales person.
Terrorism in Europe
The same kind of hype has been exacerbated in Europe. However, upon a closer inspection it is clear that the biggest threat of terrorism in Europe comes from 'seperatist' groups.
The 2009 report by Europol concludes on page 7:
"Islamist terrorism is still perceived as being the biggest threat worldwide, despite the fact that the EU only faced one Islamist terrorist attack in 2008. This bomb attack took place in the UK…Separatist terrorism remains the terrorism area which affects the EU most. This includes Basque separatist terrorism in Spain and France, and Corsican terrorism in France…Past contacts between ETA and the FARC illustrate the fact that also separatist terrorist organizations seek cooperation partners outside the EU on the basis of common interests. In the UK, dissident Irish republican groups, principally the RIRA and the CIRA, and other paramilitary groups may continue to engage in crime and violence."
Europol also shows the following statistics and the data is clear and correlates with the American data.
(According to the report, there was 1 “Islamist attack” in the UK in 2008, which was omitted in the table above. It has been included in the bar graph below.)
Just glancing at those tables is enough to know how absurd it is to claim that “all terrorists are Muslims.” That statement is nowhere near the truth. If we compile the data, it comes out to this:
It is easy to see that in the total statistics that Islamic terrorism is the least of Europe's worries. The biggest threat comes from seperatist groups.
In 2010, 3 attacks were attributed to islamic extremists, but all of them seem to have been carried out by amateurs, failing miserably in whatever they were trying to acheive.
In the 1st 'attack' the victim managed to not blow himself up by locking himself in a room.
In the 2nd 'attack' the terrorist accidentally let the bomb explode while "in a hotel toilet," resulting in 0 fatalaties.
In the 3rd 'attack' the suspected suicide bomber was the only fatality.
In another report about Islamic Terrorism, John Meuller and Mark G. Stewart declare in the Terrorism Delusion: America's overwrought Response to September 11, in the Summer of 2012 issue.
They studied 50 "Islamic Terror plots" and concluded that the perpetrators were (in their own words): "incompetent, ineffective, unintelligent, idiotic, ignorant, unorganized, misguided, muddled, amateurish, dopey, unrealistic, moronic, irrational and foolsih."
It also says that initial estimates of Al Qaeda 'sleeper cells' in America numbered in the hundreds, however, yet many years after 9/11 not even 1 sleeper cell has been uncovered by homeland security. Sounds like Weapons of Mass Destruction?
Towards the end of 2011, the Associated Press reported that the NYPD had been spying n the muslim community for the past 6 years. Whether this was needed or not can be arguable but the results speak for themselves. Despite the heavy handed nature of the spying, there was no terror leads during the 6 years.
