POLL: Gallup World Muslims


A new Gallup World international survey "based on in-home, in-person interviews with randomly selected national samples (urban and rural) of approximately 1,000 adults, aged 15 years and older, conducted in countries with predominantly Muslim or substantially Muslim populations from 2005 through 2007" finds:

  • 94% of "politically radicalized" Muslims say "religion is an important part of daily life" while 90% of moderate Muslims say the same.
  • 50% of politically radicalized Mulsims say "moving toward democracy will help Arab/Muslim societies progress;" 35% of moderate Muslims say the same.
  • "The real difference between those who condone terrorist acts and all others is about politics, not piety. For example, the politically radicalized often cite "occupation and U.S. domination" as their greatest fear for their country and only a small minority of them agree the United States would allow people in the region to fashion their own political future or that it is serious about supporting democracy in the region."
