Only 40% of U.S. Muslims believe 9/11 was carried out by “Arabs”

Following on a poll of Muslim populations in Morocco, Egypt, Pakistan and Indonesia that showed only 25% of these people accepted the official identification of the perpetrators of 9/11, comes a new poll focused on American Muslims by the respected Pew Research Center in DC.

Muslim Americans: Middle Class and Mostly Mainstream

May 22, 2007

The first-ever, nationwide, random sample survey of Muslim Americans finds them to be largely assimilated, happy with their lives, and moderate with respect to many of the issues that have divided Muslims and Westerners around the world.

The Pew Research Center conducted more than 55,000 interviews to obtain a national sample of 1,050 Muslims living in the United States. Interviews were conducted in English, Arabic, Farsi and Urdu. The resulting study, which draws on Pew’s survey research among Muslims around the world, finds that Muslim Americans are a highly diverse population, one largely composed of immigrants. Nonetheless, they are decidedly American in their outlook, values and attitudes. This belief is reflected in Muslim American income and education levels, which generally mirror those of the public…

…Relatively few Muslim Americans believe the U.S.-led war on terror is a sincere effort to reduce terrorism, and many doubt that Arabs were responsible for the 9/11 attacks. Just 40% of Muslim Americans say groups of Arabs carried out those attacks.

A comprehensive survey by World Public Opinion.org of the University of Maryland reveals that a large number of Muslims don’t buy the official story of 9/11. They also reject, overwhelmingly, violent attacks on civilians. Many of them feel that the US is out to weaken and divide Islam in general, and this affects their views on “al Qaeda”, reflected in the graph below;

What the hell is “al Qaeda” anyway? Nafeez Ahmed’s answer here.
