The reality of the Islamic world is even more painful that what the results show

Reader comment on item: Pro-bin Laden Arabs

Submitted by Tawfik Hamid (New Zealand), Sep 25, 2006 at 07:37

Dear Dr. Pipes

Many thanks for sending this results of Al-Jazeera.

If 50% of our Muslim community were TRULY against the cause of Bin Laden, we would have seen Millions of Muslims demonstrating against him and many Fatwas of Apostasy on him.

Based on what I see from Muslims and their reaction to terrorism, I am certain that most of those 50% who were against Bin Laden in this Poll said this because they were not happy that he did premature confrontation with the west that resulted in a back lash against Islam.

Much love and respect
