Something doesnt make sense. The information coming out of Egypt about how the average person feels toward living under Sharia law doesnt support what is happening on the streets of that ancient country.
Just last April the Pew Polling Company released the results of a worldwide survey of over 38,000 Muslims who were asked face to face about their views toward many of the characteristics of Muslim life. The segment of the report dealing with Egyptian sentiments reveals an almost three to one support for life under Sharia, the strict Islamist legal system.
Nevertheless, here we are just a few weeks later watching blood flow in the streets of Cairo as Egyptians fight for their freedom in...

"THIS JUST IN
Pew Polling Company reports that Coptic Egyptians love to be crucified and raped.
1 - If a poll says something like 'are you OK with living under the laws of your religion', many folks are going to be reluctant to say 'no', especially when the religion in question tends to be intolerant of people who would say 'no'
2 - There is Sharia, then there is Sharia. Most folks being asked this probably would not have given it any in-depth thought, or considered how it might adversely impact their lives. If you have a view of Sharia that is shaped by rosy pictures painted by your local imam, then it seems like a good deal. Later on, when the Morality Police push your son or daughter around, or break the windows of your shop because you have some evil Western item on display, you might start to think differently about Sharia.
If Pew had been around during the Revolutionary War I suspect that the “majority” would have preferred King George.
Why answer honestly when the wrong answer might get you and your family killed?
Since this pool was done in Muslim brotherhood run Egyptcan we believe the Egyptians spoke freely?
another question asked might reveal how they truly felt
“At least half of Muslims in most countries surveyed say they are concerned about religious extremist groups in their country, including two-thirds or more of Muslims in Egypt (67%), Tunisia (67%), Iraq (68%), Guinea Bissau (72%) and Indonesia (78%). On balance, more are worried about Islamic extremists than about Christian extremists”
I think the 0dumbo lovers are not paying close attention to how muslims feel about certain issues; homosexuality and abortion for instance. As Muslims gain more and more control here that could be a problem
“Why answer honestly when the wrong answer might get you and your family killed?”
The majority of Egyptians still support the Muslim Brotherhood. What you see in the streets is the secular middle class, which is a powerful minority that doesn’t want to be under the thumb of the M-B.
Democracy in a violent 7th century country is going to produce a violent 7th century government.
Some Freepers: I trust polls.
Same with Communism and socialism. Then when it is all said and done "it was the right wing that did it, It wasn't socialism."
You wait and see the next poll Sharia will still be loved just as the socialist still love their fantasy
Shills. Thanks Oldpuppymax.
