In July of last year, the University of Maryland commissioned Zogby to poll the people of Egypt. Here are a few of their findings:
The Zogby poll results back up a similar project conducted by Pew in April and May of last year. Among Egyptian Muslims polled, 85% felt that Islams role in politics was a positive one. In a struggle between modernizers and Islamist fundamentalists, 59% of Egyptians who foresaw such a conflict stated they would side with the Islamists, while only 27% stated that they would side with the modernizers.
Another Pew poll last June revealed that only 17% of Egyptians hold a favorable view of the United States, while 20% hold a favorable view of suicide bombing. Yes dear readers, Egyptians like suicide bombing more than they like you.
Pew also revealed that 82% of Egyptian Muslims support stoning human beings to death for having sex outside of marriage and that 77% of Egyptian Muslims support public whippings and cutting peoples hands off for theft. In addition, a terrifying 84% of Egyptian Muslims support the death penalty for anyone who has the good sense to leave the religion of Islam.
As much as we may not like Hosni Mubarak, there are many worse people who could be in power in Egypt and they are very likely to be in power before the end of the year. We would all like to believe that the protesters in the streets of Egypt are all fighting for freedom but that is not what they say about themselves. By their own admission, they prefer Islamic fundamentalism to modern civilization by more than 2 to 1. They dont want a modern democracy; they do want to murder people for having sex outside of marriage. They dont want freedom of religion in fact 84% of them want to establish the death penalty for it.
What does this sound like? It sounds a whole lot like Iran in 1979. Westerners with common sense should be leaving Egypt as quickly as possible, with no plans to ever return. We would like to hope for the best, but we must plan for the worst.
I wonder how one goes about getting a valid polling result in a dictatorship?
Count the number of severed heads and multiply by stoning victims and factor in the hands-less people.
I know a few Egyptians right here in America.
In fact they own a restaurant in Collegeville, Pa, and their hatred and disdain for America & Americans is thinly disguised and quite apparent.
People are surprised the Egyptians in Egypt don’t like us?
P.S, you can’t beat something with nothing. They do have something...
Bet they don’t hate our money.
Not so long ago, the USSR was Egypt’s #1 benefactor.
They, or the ChiComs, are just waiting to step in, either directly, or through a client state such as Iran.
It is going to happen
Egyptians Hate America and Want Islamic Rule
They have so much in common with our dear leader. Little wonder they’re all so giddy at the White House.
“I wonder how one goes about getting a valid polling result in a dictatorship?

Come 2012, they’ll be lookimg back on the rule of Hosni Mubarak as “the goo0d ol’ days.”
Almost nobody here has any confidence in the US govt (including me), but now suddenly everyone does.
What a strange thing to watch.
Thanks for posting this. It’s pretty much as I suspected. I think the entire free world will rue this day.
So - Community Organizers been community organizing over there for a while. I’ve heard Code Pink and Wm. Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn were a presence over there in recent months???? Now Obama thinks he’s pulling the wool over our STUPID eyes with his recent show of moderation and religiosity. Oh, and yeah, Uncle Sucker keeps coughing up the foreign aid, but he’s hated for it. Israel can’t get a break either. If the imams take over, it’ll be a case of “if Egyptians think they’ve seen oppression, they ain’t seen nothing yet”.
And we give them - what? A billion or so for this? Time to save some money...
Oh great. We’re going to borrow MORE MONEY FROM CHINA to prop up the Muzlim Brotherhood regime in Egypt.
Glad you posted this. It needs to be posted. Then again would it do any good? We all know this, well most of us here do. Then some want this in the ME. We know this White House does.
And the media will never report it-they used them for Obama
I saw lots of veiled women in the celebrating Egyptian crowds today on TV. What cover picture did Yahoo choose for its link to a set of 39 pictures? ...a young woman in western clothes near a nice car. Not one of the 39 pictures had a woman in focus. The media lies by omission and comission.
Mom, how do you explain to your daughter that having a cliterectomy and living a life in fear of your husband is right?
Dad, explain to your son that Uncle Mo is coming, and that "your a$$ is his for however he wants to use it."
Daughter: this is the Iron Maiden piece of cloth that you will wear whenever you go out in public.
Wife, if you don't do what I say I will throw acid in your face, cut off your nose, and perhaps behead you, you bitch.
Why anyone would rush into a seventh century world ruled by mysogynistic pedophiles who rule their families by terror is beyond me.
Thomas Jefferson had the right approach to the Muslims, but there are no stones in Washington large enough to take that approach to Islam.
Prayers for the innocent men, women, and children committing cultural suicide.
100% of everyone I polled today hold an unfavorable attitude toward Mooselimbs and Egypt.
Now, more than ever Ann Coulter's approach toward these evil Mohammedans also is also bold, courageous and wise:
We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war.
