Skip to comments.Why don't Americans like Muslims?
Posted on 08/16/2010 5:55:43 AM PDT by Palter
Popular antipathy to a proposed Islamic center near Ground Zero is so fierce that even President Barack Obama, the nation's Islamophile-in-chief, "clarified" his August 11 statement supporting the plan to say, "I will not comment on the wisdom of making the decision to put a mosque there." It is not just a mosque, of which there are two in the neighborhood, but a symbol of Islamic presence. The most recent CNN poll shows an overwhelming 70%-29% margin of opposition.
When liberal politicians - like the president and New York's Mayor Michael Bloomberg - defend the plan, what they mean is, "We want a big Islamic statement near Ground Zero as a gesture of outreach to the Muslim world." When the political right denounces it, they mean, "Muslim conquerors always build a mosque atop the ruins of the places they conquer, and we're not going to give the rascals the satisfaction." That was predictable.
What is surprising is how passionately Americans oppose the Ground Zero mosque. A revolt is brewing against America's liberal political elite.
It is hard to find consistent polling data about American attitudes towards Islam. The largest polling organizations, Pew and Gallup, draw funding from organizations with a vested interest in promoting a benign view of Islam. Nonetheless, the results are striking: in a Gallup inquiry  published in January 2010, Americans had an "unfavorable" view of Islam by a margin of 53%-42%, with 31% holding a strongly negative view. That contrasts with 15% for Judaism and 4% for Christianity.
Similar results emerge from polls of respective support for Israel and the Palestinians.

Two words: Twin Towers....
Why don’t Americans like Muslims?.....
May be the senseless violence? Nah not that.
It might be that little ‘kill infidels’ thingy...
Spengler buy a clue
They are simply trying to start a Liberal Islamic branch in the USA. Obama is a Liberal Muslim. This explains him to a T the way I see it.
It might have something to do with all that unpleasant suicide bombing, head-chopping, stoning, hijacking, kidnapping, honor killing and blowing buildings full of innocent people up. Just a guess.
Because they make sorry pilots?
Here's TWO REASONS!................
For the same reason they don’t like Nazi’s, communists, or fascists.
Here is the bottom line. The true nature of Christianity is in Christ, and the true nature of Islam is in Mohammed. Nuff said.
Twin Towers, beheadings, stonings, fatwas for cartoons, conversion or death.....nope, I have no idea why anyone would be averse to islam/sarc
Maybe it’s the
“live under our oppressive religious, political, and legal system or die”
part of Islam that we don’t see favorably...
dunno - just a guess.
I really, really hope that’s a rhetorical question.
Burning buildings and bodies is not a pleasant smell.
Before 9-11 most Americans were too ignorant of Islam to have an opinion either way. You never get a second chance to make a first impression.
I wonder if it has anything to do with killing Olympic athletes, taking hostages at our embassy, truck bombs, boat bombs, using airliners as cruise missiles, shoe bombs, underwear bombs, IEDs, beheading videos, and victory mosques?
All Americans should read some of the Koran - down right chilling!
It is NOT a religion of peace and mutual respect - it is a religion of dominance and tyranny.
And, thanks to the dopey voters of America, we have our first MOOOslim Prez who believes this stuff to the nth degree...thanks, folks...
Why not ask; Why don’t Americans TRUST, RESPECT, TRUST, ADMIRE, TRUST, FOLLOW, TRUST, EMULATE, TRUST, EMBRACE, TRUST MUSLIMS?
I know some muslims that I like. That said, as for the rest:
— I have very little in common with them. My culture is different from theirs. There’s not much to talk about.
— They adhere to a violent false religion that has caused and is causing untold misery. I want no part of it, and I’ve found through my many decades of life that it’s best to avoid evil.
— Their women, and some of the men, wear silly clothes supposedly to reflect modesty and faith but which, in reality, just draw attention to themselves.
— I can’t tell, from looking, who might want to be my friend and who is planning to blow me up.
“Why don’t Americans like Muslims?”
For the same reason Americans don’t like Rabid Animals.
Here's TWO REASONS!.............
Two sentences and you absolutely nailed it.
They want us to die seems like a good enough reason.
Maybe the fact that US citizens have been victims of terrorist attacks since 1785 might have something to do with it.
Wrong question. The question should be Why don’t Americans like the Constitution being replaced with Sharia Law?
1. Their intents on establishing a world caliphate.
2. Terrorism throughout the world.
3. Institutional pediophilia.
4. Treatment and persecution of non-muslims in muslim-dominated countries.
5. Treatment of women.
6. Hatred of anything non-muslim.
7. Moral and cultural destruction of everything around them.
8. Constant portrayal of themselves of a victim class when they don’t get their jihadist ways.
Aside from those, gosh... why DON’T Americans like muslims?
I want to ask the “coexist” car folks -
how many muslims do you think have those stickers on their bumpers?
The problem is most of us do not know arabic. Is it possible to get an English translation of the book that preserves the meaning of the original text?
we prefer our friends in human form
I doubt he is a “liberal” muslim. The muslim who occupies OUR whitehouse is a full blown muslim. There ain’t no liberal muslims. They pretend to be liberal, ‘cause the Quo’ran tells them to do whatever it takes to fool the infedel so they can get what they want...which is total control, just like they have in the middle east.
Reason # 1,549,743 why inbreeding is a bad idea.
Maybe I’m just overly sensitive but the honor killings & genital mutilation offend me.
Tho a lot of American doctors are willing to appease on the genital butchery:
And don’t forget the Hadith. Interesting reading, that is.
I wonder why that question wasn't posed...?
Why don’t american’s like muslims?
pretty much the same reason that jews don’t like nazis
Can you imagine FDR promoting a shrine to Hirohito near the Washington Monument in the middle of WW2. I like to try to think logically about Obam. The only way his actions make sense to me is that he is a ‘Liberal’ Muslim.
One whose mother I would support exercising "choice."
