Almost 80 percent of Muslims approve of Obama


Muslims support the liberal president even more than Jews do. So much for the neocon lie that Muslims are natural conservatives.

Bush likely won the Muslim vote in the 2000 presidential election. Political circumstances changed after 9/11, and the Bush administrations response has pretty much ensured Muslim hostility to the Republican Party for years to come.

According to the GSS, 91% of the 21survey Muslims voted for the Democratic candidate in the combined 1992, 1996, and 2000 elections. Only 20 percent of the 20 Muslims surveyed by the GSS in 2000 or prior indentified themselves as conservative, compared to 34 percent of all Americans.

Lots of Muslims in the US are black, aren't they?

Most Republicans are staunchly pro-Israel. This really grates on Muslims nerves.

Duh. Muslims like Ogabe because they know Ogabe is a Muslim too.

That does not make a a lick of sense. Killing a bunch of people who were killing Muslims ought not incur the displeasure of Muslims, whether in America or anywhere else.

To the extent that such "hostility" exists, it gives the lie to the fanciful notion of "moderate Muslims". Any Muslim who favors Saddam or Osama over Bush is by definition not even a little bit moderate.

Opposing Bush's approach to the war on terror and opposing the war in Iraq in general is not indicative of support for Saddam or Bin Laden.
