DC Watson reacts to this poll with his own poll:
The recently published Pew poll has announced that fewer Americans are linking Islam with violence, dropping from 44% in 2003 to 36% presently. No surprise here: the Council on American Islamic Relations has welcomed the results of this survey, which is in sharp contrast to their reaction to the Cornell University Poll, which resulted in 44% of Americans wanting the civil rights of Muslims curtailed.

Forget the phone surveys. Americans, and our many friends abroad, since these pollsters never seem to call YOUR house, this is a chance to be open and honest, and make your opinions known. Let not the politicians dictate what is good for you and what is not. This is an open survey, not a limited one. All opinions on Islam are welcome, and everyone is welcome to participate.
1. Agree or Disagree
Islam promotes peace and tolerance of all people, Muslim and non-Muslim, and promotes equal rights for both men and women.
2. Agree or Disagree
Muslims do not commit terrorist acts any more frequently than Christians, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists.
3. Agree or Disagree
Many Muslim immigrants living in Western nations have refused to integrate into the societies of their host nations.
4. Agree or Disagree
Many Muslims living in Western nations are disrespectful to the citizens of their host countries.
5. Agree or Disagree
Muslims living in Western nations would benefit, and better assimilate into Western societies if the constant interference of sneaking, lying Islamic civil rights and advocacy organizations, radical Muslim street barkers, and fanatical Imams in the mosques were eliminated.
