The End - 2000 to 2009

93% of Muslims Worldwide Condemn 9/11!

Alhamdulillah! Finally a professional research done throughout the Muslim World regarding 9/11 and terrorism.

About 93 percent of the world’s 1.3 billion Muslims are moderates and only seven percent are politically radical, according to the poll, based on more than 50,000 interviews.

In majority Muslim countries, overwhelming majorities said religion was a very important part of their lives — 99 percent in Indonesia, 98 percent in Egypt, 95 percent in Pakistan.

But only seven percent of the billion Muslims surveyed — the radicals — condoned the attacks on the United States in 2001, the poll showed.

      According to fox news 7% statistically constitutes a majority. It’s true … they had an “expert.”

      Kinda obvious but people just don’t get it….

      Hmm, am i the only one who thinks even 7% is too high a percentage to be condoning 9/11. I am outraged and shocked that this study found 7%, or a little over 100 million Muslims condoning the 9/11 attacks. :(

      This is not a statistic to be praised by any means – and Muslims should be appalled by it. This may shock stupid Islamophobes who think all Muslims are terrorists, but to have over 100 million of our brethren in Islam to not condemn terrorism is appalling!

      Uh, I bet there are 100 million Muslims who don’t even read their 5 daily salat on time. I bet there are 100 million Muslims who don’t even read the Qur’an on a daily basis. If those 100 million Muslims can’t pray 5 times a day or read the Qur’an on a daily basis, then surely there can be 100 million Muslims who condone 9/11.

      You can find 100 million Americans who think the war in Iraq is helping the Iraqi people.

      H.Ahmed – Yeah, it’s ridiculous that 7% of Muslims feel this way, though it’s not shocking. What were the opinions of people in this country after 9/11 towards those in the Muslim world? How many 9/11s do the people in the Muslim world experience on a weekly basis? Experiencing violence – whether directly or as a sympathetic spectator – can radicalize views like nothing else.

      I too find this statistic repulsive. The sheer lack of humanity required to hold such a view is frightening. I’m hoping that the Esposito & Mogahed book will indicate that the majority of these people also share a lack of familiarity with the Islamic tradition.

      if people take extreme actions against you usually your response will be just as extreme. stupid says there are many muslims who do not pray five times a day and it is very possible that there are less people who condone terrorism than there are people who pray or even understand the basic fundamental principles of this deen. sometimes people who have been beaten so badly dont care about what is right or wrong, they just want the other person to feel what they feel and this is a natural human reaction. hate it or love it but dont be so shocked.

      ok i gotta ask…what is moderate and what is radical? is it me or does it seem like the disbelievers in general want to put us into these separate categories as if they define what a true muslim is? too many times i’ve seen this. apparently a moderate is someone who is secular and to them islam is something you do at home or at the masjid, but they would like it even more if this person didn’t practice at all. a radical is someone who believes in islam as a complete way of life, shariah law included. so according to these standards, a good muslim is a radical and a bad muslim or a heretic is a moderate? what’s up with that?

      i mean don’t get your hijab in a wad…..they never asked me what i thought and i am sure they didn’t ask you either so why should we put so much faith in the lil study?

      The USA did 9/11 anyway….. you want me to believe that some arabs also planted bombs in all 3 buildings and they fell like a cake gone wrong. Nooooo it takes months of planning by certified and skilled professionals to make 3 buildings come down like the towers did….all they found after a fire that was so hot it melted steal was a passport of an ARAB terroist…can you say inside job…..so the answer is why would i bother to take the blame for what BUSH did…..2 of the 4 planes left behind no black box, seats, people, or passports or DL’s lol the whole thing was a sham on the american people just a sham…the owner of building 7 is on all the tapes/videos saying HE decided it would be best to pull tower seven….why in hte heck did he have explosives ALREADY planted did he know in advance …the firefighters and news reporters all talk about 2nd and 3rd explosions…If i saw a bunch of arab looking guys walking all the floors of my building with bags where they must have kept their c4 explosives i would have mentioned it i think. I wonder who many trips they had to make in each of those 3 buildings after hrs to plant the stuff in such a professional manner lol….people even if you wanted it to be true it aint even possible that it could happen….at the pentagon we found no chairs, no bodies of the passengers and no black box,,,, in PA? they couldn’t even find the danggone plane lol….do you still expect me to think for a second that muslims did 9/11 well i don’t and i can’t…………a missle hit the pentagon and i don’t know what happened in PA cause there was NOTHING there but a burn spot on the ground lol no tires no wings no black box and no people = no real crash lol

      who did it then you ask,, BUSH Channey and Rumsfeld go watch underseige

      true ….when a woman is beaten by her husband and one day she finally reacts by cutting off his willy wonker…the US court system will call her the VICTIM…..So if the US military goes around raping people(young girls) beating up our elderly and leaving kids without parents because they jail or kill them….people would be affected in such a way that Allah(swt) may excuse them if they did react in a terrible way. I remember when the prophets uncle Hamza was killed and HIND cut out his eyes and liver and ears and stuff what did our prophet say he was going to do? It was Allah(swt) who told him it would be BETTER if he didn’t mutilate their bodies in revenge AND the prophet had to tell the sahabba not to mutilate bodies also in other words they were pissed about this and they would have reacted based on how they felt about what happened to them. Also Ali ibn abiTalib was once trying to get info from a man and he and a few others were beating the snot out of this guy when our prophet came and told them to stop. Our prophet asked the man a few questions and got the info he needed without beating him so we learn something from these two events….there is a natural way or natural reaction that sometimes even the best people might feel is justified(sahabba) and there is the way ALLAH(swt) and his prophet would prefer things be done….. but all this really says is when you hit or abuse a thing or person, eventually it will react sometimes in a good way and othertimes in a natural way which you might not prefer… if you keep stepping on you dogs tail,,,he will snap at you and might take off a finger….

      all muslims should be considered POLITCAL RADICALS because what makes us radical is that we want something that the average joe (non muslims hypocrits and kafirs) dont want ISLAMIC SHARIA we think that ALLAH is the only LAW giver and that he ALLAH knows best how to deal with his own creation(man) We are political because we don’t want democracy to be the rule of the world because Allah has chosen islamic sharia to be the complete and perfect system for man….. A moderate in media terms is a muslim male who shaves the beard off cause the sunnah is no big deal or a woman who thinks the hijab is just a cultural thing and that its not important. A moderate says well you know…Islam is in my heart as long as i am muslim i am happy with that, i can vote or have a birthday parth ot celebrate christmas or chill out with a nice CD and glass of wine…..But a so called RADICAL wants to follow the sunnah even if it seems strange or outdated so call me a RADICAL and extremist if you want…i am extreme in my love for ALLAH while they are extrem in their love for kufr and shirk letting men marry men and women marry other women just because they voted that it was ok and hip. I trust that Allah knows all and I myself don’t have to have scientific proof in order to make me believe…if our prophet said the moon split then for me it split if he said he went to the 7th heavens and spoke to Allah then he did I don’t need proof from the BBC or FOX news or NBC or ABC to have faith in ALLAH(SWT) and his prophet…..

      muslims should learn and keep up with knowing what is going on in other parts of the world so they will be attached to the plight struggle and cries of their brothers and sisters…so don’t get mad at me when i get pissed off because you killed a guy or a lil girl with your airstrike while trying to get OSAMA…….I do get pissed off and i do take it personally anytime i see a person who believes in ALLAH killed unjustly. like i said B4 muslims have a right to defend themselves period point blank.

      and i aint mad at the taliban Mannnnn

      many have condemned the attacks in new york and washington, whether they are muslim or not and if a muslim has spoken out against these attacks it does not necessarily mean that he has taken the blame for them. whether these attacks were done by non-muslims, bad muslims or good muslims we know that Allah is the best of planners and that whatever happens good or bad is part of His divine wisdom and justice. time and time again we see a nation being punished and some are even destroyed completely so that no memory is left of them. we must understand that this is the will of Allah and we the ummah of muhammad (sal allahu alayhi wa salaam) are not exempt, we dont get a free pass just because we say la ilaha illAllah.

      the important point of those 7 percent who condone 9/11 majority did so on political grounds and not religious ground.

      “Ironically, they believe in democracy even more than many of the mainstream moderates do, but they’re more cynical about whether they’ll ever get it,” said Esposito, a professor of Islamic studies at Georgetown University in Washington.”

      So, suppose only 7% of Muslims worldwide condoned 9/11? That’s a significant portion of the Muslim community in itself, some of whom have stated their intention to destroy the U.S. and the West. All they lack is the right tool, which they are (and have been) trying to acquire in order to carry out their attacks in the name of the religion. I demand that my government do something to stop them, or at least try. I would also remind my fellow citizens that this is not a one-way street. That is, excessive energy use, respect for religion and unqualified support for Israel are real problems that we should deal with so that the job of our military and government entities operating overseas have some real chance of success. I would define success as the death of the AQ types, and a choice for Muslims in the developing world other than corrupt governments which will do nothing for the people and a religion which promises everything. All we have to offer is an imperfect system called Democracy, but it’s certainly better than the latter. If we can’t co-exist peacefully, then we must “win.” If it costs 500,000 Iraqis, and 5,000 U.S. troops, for starters, then so be it. In historic terms, the cost in lives could be considered low for an undertaking of such magnitude, i.e. the transformation of Arab and Muslim states into democratic countries. Having lived in a couple of Muslim countries (Indonesia and Pakistan) and having visited a number of others, including Afghanistan, I am convinced the 93% would be doing themselves a disservice not to join us.

      “If it costs 500,000 Iraqis, and 5,000 U.S. troops, for starters, then so be it.”

      You say that, after saying that supporting Israel is unqualified? hahahahahah

      Good point from tr:

      “the important point of those 7 percent who condone 9/11 majority did so on political grounds and not religious ground.”

      I read a report from a Pakistani journalist who interviewed OBL after 9/11, he said OBL couldn’t make a convincing argument on how killing noncombatant Americans was justified in Islam, why, because it isn’t. He turned to politics and eye for an eye logic to justify it. Oh and I’d like to know how many of those 7% believe that 9/11 was actually done by Muslims without some type of outside involvement, I woudn’t be surprised if 6.99% had a different view. I mean America has plenty of internal and external enemies, and anyone can do anything for greed and money or for what they see as long term national interest. As JC, who I assume isn’t Muslim, said above, the deaths of 500000 Iraqis and 5000 Americans are justified to “fix” the Mideast. So, what if policy makers used the same logic? Then it would be justified to kill 3000 Americans if it’ll secure long term American, Israeli, or (add countries name) interests. If you know your history then you’ll know that it isn’t impossible, these same policy makers justified sanctions on Iraq that killed hundreds of thousands due to lack of medicine, and killed millions in Vietnam. What I know for sure, 9/11 did not in any way, shape or form help Muslims or Islam.
