    In a recent survey conducted by AlJazeera.net, the website for the Al Jazeera Arabic television channel, respondents overwhelmingly support the Islamic State terrorist group, with 81% voting “YES” on whether they approved of ISIS’s conquests in the region.

    The poll, which asked in Arabic, “Do you support the organizing victories of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS)?” has generated over 38,000 responses thus far, with only 19% of respondents voting “NO” to supporting ISIS.

    Could be they are afraid of giving their real opinion.

    Not much of a surprise to me. All these American Muslims are hedging their bets, and if ISIS were to take over this country tomorrow, in order to save their necks, they would be goose-stepping in lockstep with the ISIS faithful, and become radical Muslims at the drop of the hat.

    No one is fooling anyone. The Muslims have an agenda, and it will eventually be revealed. Some of us may not be here when it comes to pass, but our kids and their kids will be here, and God help them. This is foretold in Revelation, Daniel, etc. The Muslim religion is on the rise, and it will be the ruing religion one day! They already have a Mosque on just about every corner of small-town America now!

    And no, this is not a racist rant. It is the truth that politically correct, tolerant folks do not want to admit for fear of offending these people. Nevertheless, it is being seen in Iraq, When the radicals come in, the loyalties turn to them, and the fighting forces either cut and run, or die. The rest of the folks turned to their captors for a safe haven.

    I guess it is "Better to be RED, than dead!"

    Was this poll taken in the US or in the Middle East?

    The poll was taken on their website. More than 38000 responded. Where the respondents are from is inconsequential.

    What else would we expect from "Muslims Are Us" TV?

    Al Jazeera also reported a complete rout of Americans in a battle where we lost 3 men, and killed ~150 of them.

    There are those on this board who have indicated they look to this channel as a source of news.

    The demographics of the respondents are vitally important. A website poll is woefully inaccurate and should never be trusted.

    I think it's like asking folks in the US if they are Christians. Close to 80% say yes because they think they are supposed to.

    Doubtful since it is a voluntary poll. A random sampling of Americans will have 70% plus say they are Christians. Since ISIS is targeting Muslims along with everyone else, I suspect their support to be well under 50%.

    More than likely those supporting ISIS are more motivated to answer the poll. You'd also expect a fairly high % of people who watch that network to be extremists or sympathetic to them.

    Not sure how you reached this conclusion.


    I suppose. But that's no different than what we do here in the US. Folks who watch CNN, MSNBC or FOX tend to be sympathetic to that network's views.
