40 per cent of Arabs Palestinians favoring suicide bombings

Almost half of Palestinian Muslims see suicide bombing as often or sometimes justified. This is the highest number in 21 countries.

Misguided Muslims use the instructions in the Koran to blow up them selves and others.

Out of all the Muslim respondents in a global survey, Palestinian Muslims polled highest in favor of suicide bombings as a justifiable means “to defend Islam.”

A new Pew Research Center survey of Muslims around the globe finds that most adherents of the world’s second-largest religion are deeply committed to their faith and want its teachings to shape not only their personal lives but also their societies and politics.

In all but a handful of the 39 countries surveyed, a majority of Muslims say that Islam is the one true faith leading to eternal life in heaven and that belief in God is necessary to be a moral person. Many also think that their religious leaders should have at least some influence over political matters. And many express a desire for Shariah — traditional Islamic law — to be recognized as the official law of their country.

In most of the 21 countries where the question was asked, few Muslims endorse suicide bombing and other forms of violence against civilian targets as a means of defending Islam against its enemies. But in a few countries, substantial minorities believe suicide bombing can be often justified or sometimes justified.

Muslims in some countries surveyed in South Asia, the Middle East and North Africa are more likely than Muslims elsewhere to consider suicide bombing justified. 

Four-in-ten Palestinian Muslims see suicide bombing as often or sometimes justified, while roughly half (49%) take the opposite view. 

In Egypt, about three-in-ten (29%) consider suicide bombing justified at least sometimes. Elsewhere in the region, fewer Muslims believe such violence is often or sometimes justified, including fewer than one-in-six in Jordan (15%) and about one-in-ten in Tunisia (12%), Morocco (9%) and Iraq (7%).

In Afghanistan, a substantial minority of Muslims (39%) say that this form of violence against civilian targets is often or sometimes justifiable in defense of Islam. In Bangladesh, more than a quarter of Muslims (26%) take this view. Support for suicide bombing is lower in Pakistan (13%).

At least half of Muslims in most countries surveyed say they are concerned about religious extremist groups in their country, including two-thirds or more of Muslims in Egypt (67%), Tunisia (67%), Iraq  68%, Guinea Bissau (72%) and Indonesia (78%). On balance, more are worried about Islamic extremists than about Christian extremists.

The percentage of Muslims who say they want Shariah to be “the official law of the land” varies widely around the world, from fewer than one-in-ten in Azerbaijan (8%) to near unanimity in Afghanistan (99%). But solid majorities in most of the countries surveyed across the Middle East and North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and Southeast Asia favor the establishment of Shariah, including 71% of Muslims in Nigeria, 72% in Indonesia, 74% in Egypt and 89% in the Palestinian territories.

At the same time, the survey finds that even in many countries where there is strong backing for Shariah, most Muslims favor religious freedom for people of other faiths. In Pakistan, for example, three-quarters of Muslims say that non-Muslims are very free to practice their religion, and fully 96% of those who share this assessment say it is “a good thing.” Yet 84% of Pakistani Muslims favor enshrining Shariah as official law. These seemingly divergent views are possible partly because most supporters of Shariah in Pakistan — as in many other countries — think Islamic law should apply only to Muslims. Moreover, Muslims around the globe have differing understandings of what Shariah means in practice.

The survey — which involved more than 38,000 face-to-face interviews in 80-plus languages with Muslims across Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa — shows that Muslims tend to be most comfortable with using Shariah in the domestic sphere, to settle family or property disputes. In most countries surveyed, there is considerably less support for severe punishments, such as cutting off the hands of thieves or executing people who convert from Islam to another faith. And even in the domestic sphere, Muslims differ widely on such questions as whether polygamy, divorce and family planning are morally acceptable and whether daughters should be able to receive the same inheritance as sons.

In most countries surveyed, majorities of Muslim women as well as men agree that a wife is always obliged to obey her husband.

My comment:

To all who feel the Muslims are fighting a battle for land: Are you willing to die to get your self a flat in Israel?

The Muslims are fighting to a place in heaven. They believe their God demand manslaughter, and will honor all who take some infidels with them in the big bang. But first they must shout “allah U akbar”.

Unfortunately, there are many who do not understand the spiritual realities around us, having to deal with Satan. They look up on the conflicts of the World with secular mindsets, and look for answers in the material realm. They will be searching in wain.

The “god” of the Muslims is a desert demon. This demon anointed an Arab named Muhammad, and all who have been tricked by this deception.

Renounce this evil . Only the blood of Jesus can save a man from the coming wrath of God.  Jesus loves you. Amen.

  1. Violence is never an action born of truth nor born of Christ or God. Unfortunately, wee see violence used as an acceptable means of ‘justice’ by so many who claim the beliefs of Christ, and other religions. Christianity, certainly throughout history, has behaved in similar ways to what we see some in the Islamic world acting today. And certainly the Jews of the Old Testament held a common view to “conquering the pagans with God” in their history. I think the problem of violence being born of religion is dying out, and Islam being more recent in history than Christianity and Judaism, has a bit of catching up to do it. I pray for peace around the world for every man, woman, and child.


  2. From my research Mohommedism was financed by the evil and corrupt church of Rome. Mahom-mad was chosen for his violent ferocity and ability to summon many bedoiun tribes to conquer. The superstitious Roman Pontifex Maximus was concerned about the spread of true Christianity through North Africa and their peace loving communities. They (true born again immersed-baptized believers) had prospered and their land were blessed. Some writers say ‘Like the Garden of Eden.’ No deserts sandy waste lands as it is today. St. Augustine was one of the great church fathers writing his epistles at this location. But by 760 AD+ they had destroyed and laid waste most of North Africa.

    The worship of the demon-god Allah, having fallen from heaven, (the Lord Jesus said I saw Satan fall lIke lightning firm heaven – St. Luke ch. 10) as a black meterorite which excited and inspired Muham-mad with visions and dreams (same devil that inspired IgnatIus Loyola with demonic apparitions and devilish disciplines, during the reformation period to counter the spread of true Christianity as promoted by the Great Reformers, Lollards, Divines and Luther, Zwingli, Hus, Tindale, later Knox) . Same Devil using his Occult and Black Arts to destroy the true believers as he is trying to do in these last moments of the end times. The Jesuit World Order and Dominion will be held in check until the restrainer is taken away. Then those that live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. S MH.
