Expert warns significant numbers of Muslims are willing to back violence and terror

A MIGRATION expert warns that there are more than 50 million Muslims willing to accept violence and support those who carry out terror attacks to defend their religion.

Dutch Professor Ruud Koopmans warned the EU today to block the entry of any refugees whose identity cannot be categorically confirmed.

Prof Koopmans, who is the Director of the Research Unit Migration, Integration, Transnationalisation at the Berlin Social Sciences Centre, said that of the 1 billion adult Muslims in the world, “half of them are attached to an arch-conservative Islam which places little worth on the rights of women, homosexuals, and people of other faiths”.

In an interview with a German news website he claimed that of these 500 million conservative Muslims, at least – and probably more – than 50 million are willing to sanction violence.

The migration researcher stressed that not every one of them was ready to exert violence directly.

But he added: “They support the radicals, they encourage them and provide them shelter or simply keep their mouths shut when they observe radicalisation”.
