Large majorities in the Muslim world want the Islamic legal and moral code of sharia as the official law in their countries, but they disagree on what it includes and who should be subject to it, an extensive new survey says.

Suicide bombing was mostly rejected In the study by the Washington-based Pew Forum, but it won 40 percent support in the Palestinian territories, 39 percent in Afghanistan, 29 percent in Eygpt and 26 percent in Bangladesh.

Three-quarters of respondents said abortion is morally wrong and 80 percent or more rejected homosexuality and sex outside of marriage.

Over three-quarters of Muslims in the Middle East and North Africa, South Asia and Southeast Asia want sharia courts to decide family law issues such as divorce and property disputes, the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life said on Tuesday.

Views on punishments such as chopping off thieves’ hands or decreeing death for apostates is more evenly divided in much of the Islamic world, although more than three-quarters of Muslims in South Asia say they are justified. …

I welcome them to have Sharia law just not in my country. If you don’t like the laws of America get the hell out.

And yet liberals here still think Islam is great, since Obama supports Islam.

“I welcome them to have Sharia law just not in my country. If you don’t like the laws of America get the hell out.”

You sound like one of those ‘Islamaphobics’ Grover Norquist keeps talking about.;<)

Norquist has been calling conservatives “Islamaphobic” since he was defending building the mosque at ground zero and covering for his radical Muslim friends, many who are now advisers to Obama.

GROVER NORQUIST, Quotes:
“Islamaphobic”, “racist”, “restrictionists, who merely think of themselves as conservatives”, “ bitter-enders who are still responding to radio talk-show hosts from eight years ago haven’t noticed that the world has shifted from underneath them”, opponents will be ‘marginalized”. And he and the gang of 8 are using SPLC talking points to do it.

Many in the civilized world would like to eradicate the disease of Islam. Why the hell can’t there be a telethon.

“Suicide bombing was mostly rejected”

Well I know that makes me feel better. How about you?

I say those in favor of suicide bombings should have a convention.

Let's say Mecca, or Teheran, maybe Kabul.

There would be competitions: the fastest, the loudest, the lightest, the most economical.

Perhaps a team competition with synchronized explosions.

Seventy-two dancing girls entertain the throngs.

A dog show for the kids, and bacon sandwiches for everybody.

It'll be a smash hit !

Anyone else see a little conflation going on? Thinking abortion and homosexuality and fornication are morally wrong puts you in the sharia camp.

Oh, I don’t want to be like THAT. So let’s be tolerant of people’s sexual choices. Tolerance is good! All kinds of tolerance! So let’s welcome sharia followers to our lands! No problems there that tolerance can’t fix!

I don’t have a problem with that, as long as they are never allowed to leave their native hell holes, and the ones who are here living amongst us have to go back. Buh-bye.

No wonder pResident Barry Soetoro...err....Zero removed Winston Churhill's bust from the White House and sent it back.

Here is Churchill in 1899!!! He saw what is coming:

"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.

A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome ..."

~~ Sir Winston Churchill
(Source: The River War, first edition, Vol II, pages 248-250 London).

Sort of begs the question as to why they insist on coming here doesn’t it?
