Poll: American Muslims reject extremes

The headline in the Houston Chronicle - U.S. Muslims reject extremism, poll finds in USA Today- Poll: American Muslims reject extremes The reality: - 27% hold "no opinion" about Al-Queda, 5% view it favorably. Can you imagine if a large group of Americans held "no opinion" about Nazi Germany after they knew about the gas chambers? - 60% believe that 9/11 attacks were not carried out by Arab Mohammedan terrorists. - 22% of U.S. Mohammedans said the use of suicide bombings against civilian targets to defend Islam can be justified. The complete survey is here:Muslim-Americans This liberal attempt to hide the true facts of Islamic extremism does no service to America, or the Mohammedans themselves. In order to root out the extremists they need the light shined on them like the cockroaches they (the extremists) are. God Bless, Matt

You're absolutely right about that. I thought the exact same thing when i saw the left wing portraying this survey of Islam's most civilized population (those in America) in a good light when it clearly shows how morally depraved they are.

The left wing love affair with Islam will end abruptly when/if the liberals get their way and Sharia law is instituted world-wide.

Two things:

1. I saw a poll that said that 80% of US Muslims felt that suicide bombing is "never justified," and that "only" 12% thought that suicide bombing was ok. This was presented as good news. I laughed.

2. "Mohammadean" is a term that will only raise hackles. You should stick to "Muslim" so that there will be no huffing and puffing about inconsequential things.

I think it might be more precise to say a large group of German-Americans. If we're comparing Islamic states to Nazi Germany, the analogies should be consistent. It should also be noted that many people (including those living in Nazi Germany) were in denial of the attrocities being committed.
Just me being picky :)

Thanks for the response. No, I don't think it would be consistent. First of all I'm not referring at all to Islamic states, but to suicide bombings and Al-queda. Your point about denial doesn't really contradict what I said, since we're referring to support of an actual attrocity, not simply dismissing it. It may be sad and immoral on some levels that people were in denial, but it's another story when they advocate in favor of it, knowing what it is.

God Bless,

Matt,
I'm simply taking issue at the clarity of your writing. I still disagree w/ your comparisons.
Would you say "bin Laden: Islam :: Jesus: Christianity"???
You would either replace "bin Laden" w/ Mohammed or replace "Jesus" w/ David Koresh.

Angela,

sorry, I don't understand your disagreement. Are you saying it's not shocking that 27% of American Mohammedans (ie. followers of Mohammed) hold no opinion about an organization whose only tactic is killing innocent men, women, and children? I found it incredibly shocking, and suggested that if a large group of Americans had the same opinion of the Nazi's knowing they were killing men, women, and children in gas chambers that it would have raised alarm bells loudly. We're now (thanks to the liberal media) like the frog in water slowly being boiled to death.

Ok, short history lesson:
- Jesus Christ is the founder of a religion, so we call that religion Christianity (incidentally it's the one true Faith).
- Mohammed is the founder of a religion, so we call that religion Mohammedism.
- bin Laden? he founded no religion, but an organization that espouses certain values which are arguably in line with the values of Mohammed, apparently a significant portion of followers of Mohammed (27% in the US, higher elsewhere) are not in significant dissagreement with this view of Mohammed's teaching.
- David Koresh? I'm pretty sure that there's no reasonable person who thinks that his teachings were consistent with Christianity in the remotest sense, and Christian's everywhere are surely appalled by what he taught and do not hesistate to say so. Therefore, what he taught is unrelated to Christianity in any reasonable sense.

Ok, now which of these facts do you disagree with? Or is it that your uncomfortable with them?


God Bless,

Matt
