Muslim attitudes in the US and elsewhere… July 29, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
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!
