We’re often told about studies and polling that come out of Muslim countries in regard to how they view different subjects, such as terrorism and Sharia law. A new poll from Gallup has just come out that gets more specific in regard to actual policy positions. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down.
PEW research states:
“More generally, Muslims mostly say that suicide bombings and other forms of violence against civilians in the name of Islam are rarely or never justified, including 92% in Indonesia and 91% in Iraq. In the United States, a 2011 survey found that 86% of Muslims say that such tactics are rarely or never justified. An additional 7% say suicide bombings are sometimes justified and 1% say they are often justified in these circumstances.”
