The picture is similar in Europe.   Of a total of 1,571 terrorist attacks in the E.U. from 2006-2008 only 6 were committed by Islamist terrorists which translates to less than 0.4% of all attacks, which means 99.6% of all attacks were committed by Non-Muslims.

According to the FBI, with the exception of a white supremacist's firebombing of a synagogue in Oklahoma City, all of the domestic terrorist incidents were committed by special interest extremists active in the animal rights and environmental movements.

In the face of this research, King still insists that 85 percent of American mosques have "extremist leadership" are "the enemy within" and that ordinary American Muslims are not opposed to terrorism. Yet a 2004 survey of mosque congregations in greater Detroit conducted by the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding found that the vast majority of mosque participants shun extremist views (92 percent) and are virtually unanimous (93 percent) in supporting community service and political involvement. Terrorists tend to hatch their plots via the Internet not in Mosques.

Kings, "Muslim Terrorism" hearings are the first and hopefully the last of its kind to focus on a single religious group.   His false assumptions are being roundly rejected across America and Europe. Counterterrorism experts, veteran's organizations, interfaith leaders, local leaders and editorial boards, and most importantly the American public are rejecting King's racist calumny.

  The reason is that his team's hateful and reprehensible project represents the wrong approach to homeland security, arguably violates the First Amendment to the US Constitution which enjoins singling out a particular religion and the growing realization that his crusade is actually harmful to America's anti-terrorism efforts both at home and abroad.
