Muslim Opinion Polls: A Tiny Minority of Extremists?
http://thereligionofpeace.com/pages/articles/opinion-polls.aspx

This is useful to show that pretty much even vile think terrorists do is supported by 10-90% of Muslims depending on the actual question, location of the poll, etc.

For a lot of the 'big questions', such as 'are suicide bombings justified' or approval of ISIS/Al-Qaeda the typical percentage might be 20-35%.

With 1.5 BILLION Muslims this means at least 150 MILLION will support pretty much anything (10%), and some 250-500 MILLION support most of the evil stuff.

Actually it means these numbers will ADMIT to supporting pretty much anything.

Since "Taqiya" (lying for good of the faith) is a recognized, named, and Qur'an proclaimed PRINCIPLE of Islam, it could easily be much worse.

Please add other good links that offer such polls and studies.

I've just been searching for a story I read in the last few days, but I can't find it or the source that led me to it. However, in the article it claimed that over 90% of Saudis supported IS.
It was entitled something like the real story of ISIS and I think it was on an Indian site. I'll try to remember more, but I'm not hopeful.

Here's the link for the full results of the survey of Muslims in Britain for the C4 programme going out tomorrow night. It's long and very detailed and although I've only had a glance it promises to be very revealing. For instance, it shows the relative proportion born here or outside the country, for responders in different regions. Some differences are quite marked and in London 68% were foreign-born compared with 36% in "Yorkshire and the Humber".

BTW it's not as recent as you might expect - it was done in Spring last year so has been kept under wraps for rather a long time. I looked it up because of a claim (according to the Daily Mail) that it was skewed because it selected people in "deprived areas".
However, the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) said it ‘did not recognise’ Mr Phillips’ analysis, which was based on a Channel 4 poll for a documentary tomorrow night.

It also questioned the decision to survey some of the most deprived neighbourhoods in the UK with a disproportionately high number of people with a Pakistani or Bangladeshi ethnicity.

It comes amid fears of a divide in society. Pictured is a muslim woman in a niqab selling ice cream to a child in Dewsbury (file picture)

‘Choosing specifically to poll in areas that are poor and more religiously conservative, skews the results and makes it indicative of these areas and not of British Muslims nationally,’ the MCB said.
I think the truth is probably "surveying Muslims in proportion to the number of them in an area is a logical and sensible way in which to establish their feelings".

Incidentally, the Mail uses the article as an excuse to republish this photograph from Dewsbury - so why shouldn't I do the same?

Interesting, but what a pity it doesn't include Western Europe or the Americas. Particularly the latter, where Muslims will be most distant from the origin and traditions of Islam. I.e. for (or should that be from?) whom there might be more hope.

Muslims don`t need to use violence in the West to achieve supremacy. All they have to do is have three children and that will eventually get what they want - Islamic domination.

They need to use lies:
- jihad is spirtual
- Aicha was 18 years old at the time of her marriage
- Muhammad never waged war
- No coercion in religion
- the one who kills a man, kills all humanity
Etc.
