US State Department list of terrorist organizations: 19 out of top 25 are Islamic

As of March 27, 2002, here are the top 25 foreign terrorist organizations according to the U.S. State Department.

It is interesting to note that 19 out of the top 25 are Islamic groups - so much for a religion of peace? I have highlighted these Islamic murderers in bold.

It is also interesting to note that the Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigrade, which is part of the Fatah, and therefore reports directly to Arafat is listed. For more information on Arafat and the Al-Aksa Brigades, see the Palestine page.
