Overselling the Islam Poll
show comments
  • Certainly, some Muslims must believe as this poll indicates.

    But polls, by their very nature, are not necessarily reliable.

  • Why do you think faith in the FBI & military is less than stellar?

    Would that be the use of torture techniques (claimed so by US governments going back a hundred years until GWB) against Muslims? The perhaps excessive infiltration of informants (a dubious, uneven & often unreliable resource intelligent law enforcement types would admit is best minimally used) into mosques and community centers across the country?

    Now your larger point about the media and political classes (oh wait, the majority of the current crop of GOP types is vehemently anti-Muslim or silent on the often hostile, even anti-American views of the GOP base on Muslims, excepting Gov. Chris Christie) is well-taken… but you have to at least try to give it your typical well-rounded analysis here before you pronounce judgment.
