Muslim attitudes in the US and elsewhere… July 29, 2016

Kind of find this well worth a look. It certainly shoots down the idea that Muslims are a particularly heterogenous lot. Attitudes to Sharia alone are very varied – and perhaps predictably in certain more authoritarian states there’s much greater adherence to them whereas – say – take Turkey, there’s only a minority in favour. Moreover one has to ask what flavour of Sharia.

Attachment to ISIS is very low. Attachment to the use of political violence is very low. And fears of Islamic extremism is high.

Even the importance of religion is a variable, though belief in God is very very strong.

Perceptions of Muslims? In the US they are regarded on a par with… atheists!

Check out characteristics associated with Westerners and Muslims by each other. Muslims see “Westerners” as being from their perspective more violent than Westerners see Muslims.

QUOTE: Favorable views of ISIS are somewhat higher in Nigeria (14%) than most other nations. Among Nigerian Muslims, 20% say they see ISIS favorably (compared with 7% of Nigerian Christians). UNQUOTE

7% favorable approval for ISIS from Nigerian Christians! SEVEN %! WTF?

Historically this is an accurate perception. The wikipedia page on wars & genocides:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wars_and_disasters_by_death_toll

I took the middle estimates of each war, and sorted the body piles according to culture/civ. There is no comparison with the European record, both as Christian & secular. BTW, I noticed that the Algerian war is missing (so there’s another 1 million dead to be added – but as a European power was the prime mover, I’d add the corpses to the European/Western tally, not the Islamic one).
