Just a small number of extremists among an otherwise mostly peaceful religion.
A substantial number of Palestinians think suicide bombing is justified, a poll by the PEW Research Center published this week found.
The survey, that polled Muslims in 21 countries worldwide, found that 40 percent of Palestinians believe that attacks against civilians in defense of Islam can be often or sometimes justified.
You know, this could possibly give Islam a bad name. Must be Bush’s fault.
The support for these attacks was high in the region. Twenty-nine percent of Egyptians supported suicide bombings, and 15% of Jordanians. In Turkey, 15% view these attacks as a legitimate means to defending Islam against its enemies.
That Arab Spring sure is paying dividends, huh? Hey, let’s send them some bomber jets and more billions of dollars. Meanwhile, this should give the left some pause:
The findings indicate that 89% of Palestinians think homosexuality is immoral, think women must always “obey” their husband and favor the imposition of Sharia Law into their society. A smaller amount (45%) believe honor killing is sometimes justifiable.
But remember, the Tea Party is the real enemy. We’d love some of our Democrat friends to explain why they support people like this.
