Public opinion in Britain is mostly favourable towards Muslims, but the feeling is not requited by British Muslims, who are among the most embittered in the western world, according to a global poll published yesterday.

The poll found that 63% of all Britons had a favourable opinion of Muslims, down slightly from 67% in 2004, suggesting last year's London bombings did not trigger a significant rise in prejudice. Attitudes in Britain were more positive than in the US, Germany and Spain (where the popularity of Muslims has plummeted to 29%), and about the same as in France.

Less than a third of British non-Muslims said they viewed Muslims as violent, significantly fewer than non-Muslims in Spain (60%), Germany (52%), the US (45%) and France (41%).

By contrast, the poll found that British Muslims represented a "notable exception" in Europe, with far more negative views of westerners than Islamic minorities elsewhere on the continent. A significant majority viewed western populations as selfish, arrogant, greedy and immoral. Just over half said westerners were violent. While the overwhelming majority of European Muslims said westerners were respectful of women, fewer than half British Muslims agreed. Another startling result found that only 32% of Muslims in Britain had a favourable opinion of Jews, compared with 71% of French Muslims.

The Pew poll found that British Muslims are far more likely than their European counterparts to harbour conspiracy theories about the September 11 attacks. Only 17% believed that Arabs were involved, compared with 48% in France.

Ironically from The Guardian, who happens to be one of the mouthpieces of this fifth column, regularly absolving British Muslims of any responsibility whatsoever, placing blame squarely on the West. They have also famously employed Islamic extremists as journalists.

British Muslims have the most negative view of Westerners perhaps in the whole of the Western world.

It's just embarassing that the majority of the British public can be so out of touch with what's actually going on, it really is.

    I'm surprised you're surprised that our countrymen are unaccountably overwhelmingly positive about their Muslim neighbours. The propaganda machinery of government ably assisted by the BBC and most of the MSM work overtime either to put the Muslim community in a favourable light or, if in any particular case that is impossible, substantially ignore the issue. For instance, the words "Muslim" or "Islamic" and "terrorist" rarely appear together in any sentence uttered or written by the BBC. Another instance: the Forest Gate fiasco is widely portrayed as crude victimisation by the police: interviewees on the BBC are either members of the Muslim "community" or dildos from the police grovelling and apologising for insensitivity etc etc.

    On the other hand, I haven't seen the questions actually asked, the answers given, how many people were polled etc etc. For one week the Tories were ecstatic over a 10% lead in a single poll: the lead over Labour settled down to 4-5% in at least 3 subsequent polls. Yes, the 10% was probably "correct" but polls are all about statistical probabilities so the odd rogue result should be expected.

    I find this post amusing. Its very imflamatory and is quoting heavily a source which hasn't published any hard core numbers on how they did their poll. I agree with Jonz on this 100%.

    Also I don't see what the point of going on about accountability is. I understand that is always shouted whenever anything goes wrong, but it doesn't solve anything and it rarely leads to anything.

    I am sorry but being accountable in the way you are supposing means to go against everything british and start spying on your neighbor and having discussions about topics that well being 'british' you just don't discuss. I don't know about you but when I get home, I don't give sh*t about what my neighbor is doing or not doing. I just want to get home get some attention from my family, relax a bit, go to sleep, and go back to work.

    If you want to point the finger at Muslims and say shame go ahead. They are probably used to it, but you will just appear to be another fools fool. Throughout history this has happend. It happend with Socialism in America, it happened with the blue's and red's in the American Civil war, it happend in Winnipeg (Louis Riel), it happend in Ireland (still being worked out). Sorry mate but Muslims are people and like all people some of them act up. Right now they are acting up and embarassing the rest of them.

    There are other real issues here and one of them is that Muslims were repressed for their beliefs in the western world, they do feel strongly about certain issues that we don't. They feel their honor is worth dying for, we(I) believe freedom of speech is worth dying for, and for a long time people like myself ignored this difference by saying well I always have done it this way and so I always will. Tolerance isn't one sided.

    Israel, is a huge issue for Muslims and they feel passionate about it. So do Jews. Israeli's bulldose down homes and assasinate leaders political or terrorist(Muslims may refer to them as freedom fighters), they change the border they were the first ones to break the original accord that was signed (I believe in Sweden) by continuing to build on Palestinian land. Most Jew's don't support these and other tactics used by Israelis.

    Fine I am not judging either of them but the point is there are real issues, with real problems, and the poll you are quoting is very likely full of sh*t because not only were the questions not likely definitive but the geography, ethnicity, religion, etc were not considered.

    By the way for the record, I am a white guy from Canada, who was born Christian, has traveled most of the world and I find this sensationalism sad on a blog. Where is your committment to the social contract?

    Anonymous,

    I find it inflamatory too. That's why I posted it. Are you contesting the statistics made in the article? If so, where is your evidence, unless of course this is just based on hearsay?

    I find your viewpoint rather confusing. You say you are for freedom of speech, yet you contesst that the poll I am quouting "is very likely full of sh*t". On what basis?

    The basis you find these statistics shocking, uncofomortable?

    At least 100,000 British Muslims felt the July bombings were justified. Please don't come here and diss things on the basis of hearsay!

    I am united with British Muslims who are against terrorism, who are for a British democracy.

    However 40% want Sharia law according to another poll. Even if say this was very skewed, and only 20% want Sharia, wouldn't you agree that's a worrying percentage? (Providing you are familiar with what Sharia law entails).

    How do you deal a problem if one is not allowed to talk about it? You are basically saying this is insensitive to Muslims. Your ethos, it appears is political correctness.

    Israel, is a huge issue for Muslims and they feel passionate about it. So do Jews.

    Yes, and how many Jews have blown themselves up on tube trains?  

  5. # Anonymous Anonymous

    So how many people is 30% (split the difference with you) of British Muslims? And i wonder how many of them are young impressionable lads, uninformed and unaware of the reality of sharia law? I bet most of those that do want it as a direct backlash against the 'garden variety' racist abuse they have suffered. Just hearsay ofcourse  

  6. # Anonymous Anonymous

    and how many palastinians have US helicopter gunships peculiar?  

  7. # Anonymous Anonymous

    Anonymous - Israel targets terrorists when necessary. Theres no equivalent basis to justify the random massacre of people on a tube in London by British born muslims. Though you can clearly do just as much damage and ruin as many lives with the explosives they strapped to themselves. They didnt achieve much for their 'cause'.  

  8. # Anonymous Old Peculier

    In any case the number of "Palestinians", who have voted to destroy Israel by voting in Hamas, killed by Israelis is miniscule compared with terrorist atrocities carried out by Muslims.

    Racism? Bollocks. Hindus and Sikhs are the same colour and roughly the same number and cause no problems at all. Many British Christians are black. No problems.

    It's Islam, stupid. The evil, murderous and perverted ideology that has contributed nothing to the world except death, destruction and paedophilia.

    very good post jon as well as the comment you made above. I think the percentages gave could be pretty accurate concidering the opinions I see everyday just reading through various blog sites and the arguments that go on with in them, and it is very distubing and confusing.

    anonymous made an interesting statement.....
    "And i wonder how many of them are young impressionable lads, uninformed and unaware of the reality of sharia law? I bet most of those that do want it as a direct backlash against the 'garden variety' racist abuse they have suffered."

    I bet they are! and that they dont understand the reality at all!
    also when did Islam become a race?


    We have simular problems here...

    http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/06/23/kent.cnna/index.html

    maybe you heard todays news about the arrests in miami.
    the families of these men are already protesting that this group only wanted to sereve and better the community, and that they are christian.
    who do you believe? the FBI or someones mom?
    I'm sure the fact they are all black will eventually involve racial issues too.

    I like cake.  

  11. # Anonymous Anonymous

    peculiar, you know racism is a factor, dont be a tit.  

  12. # Anonymous Old Peculier

    Nonsense. If racism were a factor sufficient to make it understandable to commit mass murder, you'd get Hindus and Sikhs doing it. And black Christians. And you don't.  

  13. # Blogger Malcolm

    I do, I really do like cake.
    Am I being racist for disliking islam ?  

  14. # Blogger jonz

    I like cake too Malcolm. And no it's not racist to dislike Islam. It's normal.

    Oh and France have just equalised.
