Our president and his administration lackies would have us believe that an infinitely small percentage of the Muslim world are in support of fanatical movements, with or without violence. One of Mr. Obama’s statements went so far as to claim 99.9 percent of Islam is a peaceful religion, and that only 0.1 percent could be considered violent or sympathetic to jihad.
Not true. (as usual) Our president cherry-picks facts from thin air and thinks because he holds the elected office of president, his words cannot be disputed. Perhaps he would like to be renamed “God.” (or Allah, as the case may be). Meanwhile, he tells us that 99.9 percent of Muslims in the world reject the terrorist’s understanding of Islam.
In these times, polls are conducted constantly but we hear little of the results unless it’s a headline issue. Reputable research institutes, like Pew, BBC, Gallup, CSC and more, can be found on the net. I searched for polls that deal with Muslim attitudes toward and within western society, specifically on violence, sharia and the grand jihad in general. The links below provide hundreds of sources and web sites on this subject, if you want to delve further. But I’ll list a few of the more interesting poll results in this article.

Step away, and try to see this as a generational movement. It’s not today that matters. What matters is the future generations which we leave to our children.
Twenty or thirty years ago, the trends revealed in these polls are a stark difference to the situations of today. The Religion of Peace has made enormous strides in the influence they have imposed on western societies, while we remain comatose to the probabilities that will take place in the next thirty years. Thirty years ago, most of us knew absolutely nothing about Islam. Today, it dominates the world stage.
Political correctness, tolerance, acceptance and all the feel-good terms that often associated with the rise of Islam isn’t going to make the world safer, nor will it stem the rise of Sharia within the fabric of America. Unless we install strong leadership in the next election cycles, (local and federal) the influence of Islam – violent and peaceful – will metastasize throughout the western world until existing constitutions are nullified and Sharia is installed everywhere. They said, in writing, they would do this, and they are well on their way.
I’m afraid we have lived in the best of times.
Meanwhile, believe nothing — ZERO — that comes from the White House. There’s a reason the Obama machine does not tell the truth, and it’s not just about being liberal or Democrat.
Here are some web pages with many more details about polls:
Norway, one of the more liberal countries of Europe, is deporting 824 Muslim immigrants. That’s a change in trend. As Europeans awaken to the threat of their cultures, we’ll likely see more of this, but is it too late?
