Poll reveals how many Muslims support suicide bombing

by | 4th, May 2013

SURVEY of the day:

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.

…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. In Afghanistan, where suicide bombings against Western targets occur frequently, 39% believed it is a justified means of resistance.

And:

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. – JPost
