Muslims Reject Violence Worldwide

MSNBC story:

Muslims around the world increasingly reject suicide bombings and other violence against civilians in defense of Islam, according to a new international poll dealing with how the world's population judges their lives, countries and national institutions.

A wide ranging survey of international attitudes in 47 countries by the Pew Research Center also reported that in many of the countries where support for suicide attacks has declined, there has also has been decreasing support for al-Qaida leader Osama bin-Laden.

Abject denials and claims that all Muslims are bloodthirsty lunatics by the radical right in 3... 2... 1...

Seriously, Paul, I don't think you can make such a blanket statement, especially considering that the "approval ratings" for suicide bombings and other forms of violence against non-Muslims from Palestinians was 41%. And, it can be said that it's more indicative of a lack of approval for violence towards Muslims, which is an entirely different thing than a wholesale rejection of terrorism.

Paul Hamilton:

Palestinians are a unique case because most of them have known nothing but violence and desperation for decades. Live in a madhouse long enough and you'll go mad yourself. But it's encouraging that people in more stable environments are rejecting the idea of terrorism as "politics by other means." And it shows that diplomacy is worthwhile.

Show me one these, so called "bloodthirsty lunatics" that are part of the mainstream political process or an author of a top 100 blog.

Just ONE.


Still looking Hamilton?
