A majority of American Muslims do not believe the 911 attacks were carried out by Arabs,one-quarter of young US Muslims believe suicide bombings can be justified .Most Muslims are moderates and abhor terrorism. But the minority that is extremist is a big one.In many nations, moderate Muslims have been intimidated and killed.Most American Muslims are moderate and reject extremism and more moderate than European Muslims.But the US poll is the latest,and shows that the extremist minority is a very large. Britain’s Tony Blair wrote in The Sunday Times: “Extremism will be defeated only by recognising that we have not created it ... pandering to its sense of grievance will only encourage it.” “Tell me what exactly they feel angry about? We remove two utterly brutal and dictatorial regimes; we replace them with a UN-supervised democratic process. And the only reason it is difficult still is because other Muslims are using terrorism to try to destroy the fledgling democracy and, in doing so, are killing fellow Muslims. Why aren’t they angry about the people doing the killing?”

If Blair feels his views are vindicated why did he resign from his position due in part to British dissatisfaction with his support of the U.S.'s military involvement in the Middle East? IMO its a tacit admission that he does not believe what he's saying.
