(NEW) U.S. Muslims far less likely than all U.S. adults to say targeting and killing civilians is justifiable.

A worldwide poll conducted in 2011 by Gallup confirms the numbers now and showcases that Muslims are less likely to support terrorism across the world.

Pew  Research Centrer states:

“When asked whether targeting and killing civilians can be justified to further a political, social or religious cause, 84% of U.S. Muslims say such tactics can rarely (8%) or never (76%) be justified, while 12% say such violence can sometimes (7%) or often (5%) be justified.

This question was designed to be asked of the general public as well. Compared with the U.S. public as a whole, Muslims are more likely to say targeting and killing civilians for political, social or religious reasons is never justifiable (76% vs. 59%).”
