BRITISH Muslims are more radicalised than those in several other major western European nations, according to the authors of a new global poll.
The Pew Global Attitudes Report found Muslims in Britain were more likely than their counterparts in France, Germany and Spain to feel there was a conflict between being devout and living in modern society.
They were also the most likely of the groups in the three countries to say Arabs did not carry out the September 11 attacks.
Their opinion of Westerners was lower and more of them described relations between Westerners and Muslims as bad.
Almost a quarter, 24%, thought suicide bombings and other violence against civilian targets to defend Islam were justifiable though among these some stated that this was rarely the case.
However they were also the most concerned about the rise of Islamic extremism, with 77% saying it worried them.
However, the opinion of people overall in Britain of Muslims was relatively positive compared with other European countries.
Some 63% saw Muslims in a favourable light, compared with 65% in France, 36% in Germany and 29% in Spain.
Andrew Kohut, director of the Pew Research Centre, said: British Muslims were the most radicalised. French Muslims were the most temperate, he added.
British Muslims were also the least likely to believe that Westerners were respectful of women.
One of the reports authors, Richard Wike, said: There are some areas where the British Muslims do stand apart a little from the other Europeans we surveyed.
He added that the researchers had not examined why that might be but wanted to dig deeper to find out.
Poll shows Muslims in Britain are the most anti-western in Europe
Bad moon risin'...
"Most radicalised" or "most brainwashed into being zombie murderers".
The more freedom they are given , the more outspoken they are.
All Muslims hate anything non-muslim, but in some countries thay cannot express this as well as in others because they are frightened . They have nothing to fear in Britain.
The story itself says Britain is more accepting of Muslims than other countries. So the Muslims feel more free to make their statements.
It isnt that british Muslims are more radicaliesd its just that they are more free to show it.
Muzzies in France only burn cars (so far).
This is thanks to Saudi funded religious education. And Britain now ranks as the center of Muslim education and finance in Europe. Saudi (Wahabi) religious education = radical. And where is all the Muslim financing from Britain going?
Well, the solution is known, and there are precedents - Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabella of Castile, 1492, come to mind, or Edward I of England, 1291...
