Maybe if we give the Palestinians an extra hundred million they’ll change their opinions. Joking, of course that would never happen (the attitude, not the money).
(Haaretz) — Among six predominantly Muslim countries recently surveyed, Muslims in the Palestinian territories voiced the most support for the assassinated al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, a poll released on Monday showed.
The poll, conducted by Pew Research Center’s Global Attitudes Project, found that Muslims around the world displayed a declining confidence in bin Laden, while the Palestinian Muslims retained the highest rates for the assassinated terrorist.
More than 34 percent of Palestinian Muslims said in 2011 they had confidence in the terrorist leader to do the right thing in world affairs, a nearly 20 percent drop since 2009. In 2003, 72 percent of Palestinians voiced support for bin Laden; Turkey showed the least support that year, with 15 percent.
Indonesian Muslims showed a decline from 41 percent of in favor of bin Laden in 2007, to 26 percent in 2011, while 22 percent of Egyptians and 13 percent of Muslims in Jordan voiced their confidence in the al-Qaida chief.
