Anti-American feelings soar among Muslims

TimesOnline reported The War on Terror has radicalised Muslims around the world to unprecedented levels of anti-American feeling, according to the largest survey of Muslims ever to be conducted.

They liked us better when we just ignored things like bombing the USS Cole and or our Embassy in Nairobi, rather than fighting back. We should take this into consideration when considering allowing Muslims to immigrate to this country, especailly clerics funded by Saudia Arabia.
Seven per cent believe that the events of 9/11 were “completely justified”.
We need to keep an eye on them.
In Saudi Arabia, 79 per cent had an “unfavourable view” of the US. Gallup’s Centre for Muslim Studies in New York carried out surveys of 10,000 Muslims in ten predominantly Muslim countries. One finding was that the wealthier and better-educated the Muslim was, the more likely he was to be radicalised
We should consider that when we consider student visas and Foreign Aid.
.... A large number of Muslims supported the Western ideal of democratic government. Fifty per cent of radicals supported democracy, compared with 35 per cent of moderates.
Is that in Europe where they think they will soon outnumber the non-Muslims, and take over the country?
Religion was found to have little to do with radicalisation or antipathy towards Western culture.
That is foolishness.
Muslims were condemnatory of promiscuity and a sense of moral decay.
Then they should not come to the West, but should stay in Islamic countries.
What they admired most was liberty, its democratic system, technology and freedom of speech.
That is because they don't have those things under Sharia Law.
While there was widespread support for Sharia, or Islamic law, only a minority wanted religious leaders to be making laws.
Then they don't understand Sharia Law.
Most women in the predominantly Muslim countries believed that Sharia should be the source of a nation’s laws, but they strongly believed in equal rights for women.
They really don't understand the Qur'an or Sharia Law.
It is not only ok, but ordered, that a man should beat his wife. Qur'an 4:34 says Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great.

Rights of a woman 1/2 that of a man Qur'an 2:282 says ... Let his guardian dictate faithfully, and get two witnesses, out of your own men, and if there are not two men, then a man and two women, such as ye choose, for witnesses, so that if one of them errs, the other can remind her.
This finding indicates the complexity of the struggle ahead for Western understanding. Few Western commentators can see how women could embrace the veil, Sharia and equal rights at the same time.
I agree.
