A new survey is being praised by the left because it shows that a majority of U.S. Muslims oppose violence against civilians.
The truth is the same survey shows that 20% of U.S. Muslims openly admit they believe targeting and killing civilians can sometimes be justified to further a political, social, or religious cause.
The survey, which was released on July 26 by the Pew Research organization, revealed that 5% of U.S. Muslims admit they believe targeting and killing civilians is “often” justified, while 7% said such violence was “sometimes” justified, and 8% said such tactics were “rarely” justified. Keep in mind these are just those that are willing to admit they support violence.
The survey also showed that 30% of U.S. Muslims say they believe those who have been arrested in the U.S. on suspicion of plotting terrorist attacks were “tricked” by law enforcement officers and “did not pose a real threat.” An additional 30% said that “it depends” or offer another response or no response.
The survey did not specifically ask participants whether or not they support terror attacks committed in the name of Islam or if they support attacks against Israel.
