The Grim Milestone The Media Won't Report

That's 10,001 deadly Islamic terrorist attacks. At least one innocent life was cut short in each and every one of these acts; in some cases, dozens or even hundreds, were murdered.

The Grim Milestone the media won't report, and liberals won't acknowledge.

UPDATE: Yesterday, wrote an article about the impending milestone, with a little information about TROP:

The establishment media is seemingly obsessed with “grim milestones” in the War on Terror, as the Associated Press reminds us this past weekend. But in the next week those same establishment media outlets will probably stand mute when yet another “grim milestone” is reached – the10,000th attack by Islamic terrorists and militants since 9/11, which is responsible for approximately 60,000 dead and 90,000 injured.

The chronicler of this bloody tally is Glen Reinsford, editor of, who began compiling and updating daily a detailed list of reported incidents of violence and terrorism around the world targeting non-Muslims and Muslims alike. Because of space limitations he only posts the past two months worth of attacks on his websites main page, though he has archived all of the incidents from past years (2001-2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007). He also maintains a banner graphic with the updated number of attacks, which people can post on their own websites.

When asked what prompted him to begin such a labor-intensive undertaking, Reinsford identifies the tepid response to Islamic terrorism by otherwise outspoken Muslim groups, with one organization particularly in mind:

The Council on American-Islamic Relations. After 9/11, I kept an eye on them and was quite disgusted by their lack of moral perspective. They complain about issues that affect Muslims which are quite trivial, on average, compared to what is happening in the name of their religion. They do occasionally denounce terror in a general, somewhat ambiguous, sense but there is an obvious lack of passion. Their real interest is themselves.

The sad part that doenst even cover the thousands of lives lost to muslims since the creation of this religion.

It would do all good to go back in history and aquire the knowlege as to how many lives have been needlessly lost in the hands of these barbaric blood thirsty fanatics.

This is true. I think TROP selected a specific date to begin so as to maintain some sort of perspective.

I know during debates, when Muslims and their apologists use the old "Christianity is violent too!" defense, I've often challenged them to provide even HALF the number of terrorist attacks during the same time frame committed by followers of any other religion - or even all others combined. They cannot do it.
