Gallup Survey of Muslims; Read It And Weep

Gallup surveyed 10,000 people in nine Islamic countries and the results are disturbing, to say the least. Fully three-quarters of those surveyed believe the US military action in Afghanistan was not justified. While two-thirds said the attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center were morally unjustifiable, the Financial Times reports: "most of those questioned reject the idea that Arabs, specifically Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda network, carried out the attacks. Significant numbers believe that Israel, or even the US itself, was responsible." You can read the full story by clicking here. The survey is posted on the Gallup site, but you have to pay for it.
