The global Muslim population stands at 1.57 billion, meaning that nearly 1 in 4 people in the world practice Islam, according to a report Wednesday billed as the most comprehensive of its kind.
The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life report provides a precise number for a population whose size has long has been subject to guesswork, with estimates ranging anywhere from 1 billion to 1.8 billion.
The project, three years in the making, also presents a portrait of the Muslim world that might surprise some. For instance, Germany has more Muslims than Lebanon, China has more Muslims than Syria, Russia has more Muslims than Jordan and Libya combined, and Ethiopia has nearly as many Muslims as Afghanistan.

What? America is falling behind? Obama will have do do something to register more muslim residents. Where is Acorn when you need em?
The Prince of Darkness is smiling.
It looks as though we really do have our work cut out for us.
If we are intelligent we won't let that number grow larger.
Our Black underclass is probably the largest source of that growth.
Everywhere they go, they get on welfare, huddle in the communities they take over, and have as many children as they can. The men have multiple wives because that is shariah. Coming to a neighborhood near you.
Let your light shine and maybe some Muslims will wake up? The fire of Gods love will sort the wheat from the chaff.
Not where I live.
Yeah, I expect where you live, you can see for miles and miles. Lucky you.
Something, uhhh, larger perhaps. Like a whole country’s worth a day.
Your tag line sums it all up. My black Lab is more trustworthy than most humans much less muslims.
A typical Muslim is more Christian than Barack Obama, who is a Christian In Name Only (CINO).
While I detest the suicide-bomber, al-Qaeda members of Islam (a minority), let’s compare Muslims and Obama:
-Muslims pray to a transcendent God 5 times a day, Obama considers looking in the mirror as prayer...atleast the Muslims know that mankind is inferior to God
-Muslims refer to the Koran for definitions and examples of sinfulness, whereas Obama defined sin as “Being out of alignment with my values.”
-Muslims cite the Koran, which preaches love for God and obedience of God, albeit sometimes misguided. Obama cites Marx, which preaches man’s contempt for each other based on differences in wealth
-Islam forbids abortion, the murder of innocent unborn human beings (”Kill not your offspring for fear of poverty; it is We who provide for them and for you. Surely, killing them is a great sin.” Qur’an 17:32). Obama maintains that women should not be “punished” with an unborn child...he remained in silent in protecting the survivors of abortion...he is a lapdog of Planned Parenthood and NOW, the biggest organized slaughterers of the unborn in America
-Islamic terrorists are a minority within the religion and they (not all Muslims, but the terrorists) are the enemy from the outside. Obama is embraced by a majority of American voters- he and his ilk are the enemy within.
Obama is hopeless because he is a Nero-wannabe
Target rich environment
There were instances where Muslims in the U.S. openly celebrated 9/11/01 - but no instances where Muslims protested the terrorist acts.
How about pregnant women who get caught in a suicide bombing? I guess that doesn't count. Religious fanatics are the most dangerous people on earth.
