Regarding familiarity with Muslims

Reader comment on item: Anti-Islam & Anti-Islamism Trumps Islam in the West: Polls

Submitted by Anon. (United States), Aug 31, 2018 at 09:59

That survey makes sense but does not imply that as the Muslim population grows even further more people will like it. That's because as the population grows, so do various problems relating to Islam. You'll notice around half the people who know a Muslim still have an extremely negative view of Muslims as a group, believing that in their hearts they wish to impose Islam. As Islamism grows more common and oppressive, this negative aspect will overpower any positive aspect relating to people's knowing Muslims.

Moreover, believing Islamization is awful does not rely on making negative blanket statements about Muslims.
