* Why? Why in the f*kc do we need a survey that ‘dispels the belief held by some?’ And who in the hell is so adamant that we have to have a skewered survey to make us believe otherwise?
A huge survey of the world’s Muslims released Tuesday challenges Western notions that equate Islam with radicalism and violence.
The survey, conducted by the Gallup polling agency over six years and three continents, seeks to dispel the belief held by some in the West that Islam itself is the driving force of radicalism.
And, as usual, Karin Zeitvogel quotes the egregious John Esposito, a hopelessly compromised shill for Arab Muslim causes, as the ultimate authority in matters Islam.
Robert Spencer comments:
And that, to some minds at least, proves that this problem has nothing to do with Islam. The idea that the jihad ideology could have been deemphasized for a long period and then reasserted, as in pamphlets such as “Jihad: The Forgotten Obligation,” creating an energetic minority, a jihadist vanguard within the Islamic world, does not enter this scenario. We are supposed to feel great that only 91 million share radical views — or at least only 91 million were dumb enough to tell a Gallup rep that they held such views.
