Islam-The Religion of Violence? Not So Much.

Ok, this is going to be very amateurish as I have never done this. This is a study on Muslim attitudes toward terrorism, specifically 9/11.

Religion is an important part of life for the overwhelming majority of Muslims, and if it were indeed the driver for radicalisation, this would be a serious issue.”

But the study, which Gallup says surveyed a sample equivalent to 90 percent of the world’s Muslims, showed that widespread religiosity “does not translate into widespread support for terrorism,” said Mogahed, director of the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies.

About 93 percent of the world’s 1.3 billion Muslims are moderates and only seven percent are politically radical, according to the poll, based on more than 50,000 interviews.

In majority Muslim countries, overwhelming majorities said religion was a very important part of their lives — 99 percent in Indonesia, 98 percent in Egypt, 95 percent in Pakistan.

But only seven percent of the billion Muslims surveyed — the radicals — condoned the attacks on the United States in 2001, the poll showed.

Moderate Muslims interviewed for the poll condemned the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington because innocent lives were lost and civilians killed.

  1. Well done. I watched a documentary here recently about the Celts, and Roman empire did the same thing our American empire does today and that is to demonise other cultures.

  2. Don’t forget witche’s Davesfortruth…..

    OT, sorry….Some group is running TV add’s with the phone number to call the house member’s and demand they push the fisa bill through…Lot’s of scare shot’s…Typical BS…..Blessings

  3. Excellent job, sabyen91.
    Most muslims abhor the killing of innocent lives.
    Christians need to take some serious moral inventory when it comes to killing people in the name of “God.”

  4. Damn!
    How did you know?
    I love those dancing GI- Joes!


    You remind me of a card I’ve owned for almost 20 years now. (I collect funny cards. And buttons.)
    I’ll continue in a minute.

  5. A story is told of two friends who walked down an old train track discussing life.
    Unexpectantly, from around a blind corner, a speeding engine approached. With no thought to personal safety, one of the friends pushed the other aside, even though it meant facing death under the steel rims.

    When I hear that story, I think of you, and I wonder……………………………….

    “Would I be able to find your wallet in the wreckage?”

    BTW: It’s in my front left pocket!
