We now know from my previous article that a majority of Muslims in Palestine and Iraq support terrorism (53% and 61% respectively), while a large minority of Muslims in the UK support terrorism (25%). A further look into polls from the Pew Research Center for People and the Press has confirmed my previous conclusion; a majority of Muslims in most Islamic nations support terrorism.
The PRC interviewed over 38,000 people during a four-month period in 44 nations. The conclusions of the Pew Global Attitudes survey are as follows:
Because polling was not allowed in many of the more fundamentalist Islamic states such as Iran or Egypt, there are no statistics as to the number of people who support terrorism. However, it is important to keep in mind that Islamic states likely have higher rates of support than the states mentioned above which simply represent majority Muslim populations.
- A majority of people in Lebanon support suicide bombing, 73%
- A majority of people in the Ivory Coast support suicide bombing, 56%
- A majority of people in Nigeria who responded supported suicide bombing, 47% yes to 45% no
- A majority of people in Bangladesh who responded supported suicide bombing, 44% yes to 37% no
- 33% of Pakistanis support suicide bombing
- 27% of Indonesians support suicide bombing
- 32% of the population of Mali supports suicide bombing
- 30% of Ghana supports suicide bombing
- 29% Uganda
- 28% Senegal
A second PRC study titled A Year After Iraq War has some things to say about support for terrorism as well.
It's interesting that more Turks support terrorism against the West than they do against Jews. Verily, the euphemism "the Jews" is used for Westerners by Arabs in the Middle East.
- "Osama bin Laden, however, is viewed favorably by large percentages in Pakistan (65%), Jordan (55%) and Morocco (45%)."
- Suicide attacks against Israelis
- In Turkey, 24% support
- In Pakistan, 47% support
- In Morocco, 74% support
- In Jordan, 86% support
- Suicide attacks against Westerners
- In Turkey, 31% support
- In Pakistan, 46% support
- In Morocco, 66% support
- In Jordan, 70% support
Some final statistics on Palestinians and 9/11. These are from the National Review and Palestinian Media Watch.
As we see above, in Muslim countries the percent of the population supporting terrorism varies from a large minority to a large majority. On average the least is 30% while the most is 65%. The notion of a "handfull" of Muslim terrorists or a "vast minority" of terrorist supporters must come to an end. Terrorism is epidemic in Islam.
- "A vast majority in Gaza supported the 9/11 killings" (based on Gallup polls)
- 73% of Palestinians support suicide attacks against the United States

as long as the "other guy" is the suicide bomber

The Pew Research Center's poll results concerning Muslims and suicide bombing should put to rest the myth only a small percentile of Muslims agree with directly participating in terrorism.
When a majority of a nation's Muslim citizens favour blowing themselves up - there's a massive problem, which is normally termed 'a dangerous cult'.
Can anyone guess what this Mahdi instigating jihadist's poll results would be?

"I would trust nothing from Pew."
The figures are most likely far too low in terms of Muslims agreeing with 'self detonation' (homicide bombing).
I agree on Pew, noting the partial collection of the very well healed, leftist 'non-profit' agenda driven manipulators, listed below.
"The efforts of Pew and the other liberal foundations, which include George Soros's Open Society Institute and the Carnegie Corp., were aided by the news media's complicity. The American Prospect, a liberal magazine, put out a special issue on campaign finance reform in 2000 that was paid for by a $132,000 Carnegie grant--a fact the magazine failed to disclose."
