Let’s take Malcolm Turnbull at his word that it’s only “a very very small percentage of violent extremist individuals”. What is the actual percentage?

That’s 20 brand new “violent extremists” per day.

Tim Blair gets to the nub of the matter: A number of Muslims want to kill non-Muslims. Do we have the capacity to distinguish the murderous Muslims from the non-murderous ones?
