27% Of British Muslims Sympathize With Motives Behind Attack On Charlie Hebdo

Again, to be clear, and thwart Leftist attempts at deflection, distraction, and strawman arguments, this does not blame all Muslims. What it does show is that the hardcore brand of Islam is spreading, gaining traction, and influencing larger and larger populations of Islam

(UK Daily Mail) More than a quarter of British Muslims have sympathy for the motives behind the attack on the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris, which left 12 people dead, a survey shows.

The new poll also revealed that 32 per cent of respondents were ‘not surprised’ that the massacre took place after the publication printed a number of images of the Prophet Mohammed.

And more than 10 per cent of the 1,000 British Muslims interviewed agreed that the magazine ‘deserved’ to be attacked.

The survey also found that almost one in 10 knew other Muslims who had strong sympathies with those fighting for Al-Qaeda or Islamic State. (snip)

When polled, 27 per cent said they agreed with the statement ‘I have sympathy for the motives behind the attacks on Charlie Hebdo in Paris’

The poll was conducted by ComRes for BBC Radio 4, and, let’s be honest, the “sympathy for the motives” doesn’t necessarily mean that the Muslims agreed with the murders, just the reasons for the murders. However, thinking that a simple drawing is reason to commit violence and murder, identifying with the reasons for a terrorist act, should give one pause.

What should be of even more concern is that 32 percent were “not surprised” that adherents to their religion went on a murderous rampage over the publication of cartoons which depicted Mohammed. Says quite a bit as to where Islam is heading.
