WHAT 1.4 BILLION MUSLIMS THINK ON WESTERN ISSUES OF CONCERN
I APPRECIATE THE GREAT EFFORT, BUT I FIND TOO MANY FLAWS IN THE ISSUES CHOSEN AND THE RESEARCHERS ARE NOT SPEAKING FREELY BUT OUT OF FEAR OF THEIR WESTERN MASTERS!
FOR EXAMPLE, WHAT DO THEY MEAN BY "USAMA BIN LADIN" OR "JUDEO-CHRISTIAN"?
ACTS OF TERRORISM IN THE NAME OF ISLAM?
INDIAN MUSLIMS HAVING NO PROBLEM IN INDIA?
THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT AN UNBIASED SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH!

"Inside Islam: What a Billion Muslims Really Think Synopsis"Inside Islam: What a Billion Muslims Really Think, a new documentary film from Unity Productions Foundation, explores the expertly gathered opinions of Muslims around the globe as revealed in the world's first major opinion poll, conducted by Gallup, the preeminent polling organization.
Gallup researchers began by asking the questions on every American's mind. Why is there so much anti-Americanism in the Muslim world? Who are the extremists and how do Muslims feel about them? What do Muslims like and dislike about the West? What do Muslim women really want?
Crucial policy decisions hang on these questions. They continue to generate passionate disagreements in the public square. Yet for all the heat and controversy, the actual views of the world's Muslims have been conspicuously missing from this debate.
Now, we have the missing answers and statistics, gathered, parsed, and analyzed not by pundits but by professional researchers.
As part of this groundbreaking six-year project, Gallup conducted tens of thousands of interviews with residents in 35 predominantly Muslim nations, as well as smaller populations in Europe and the USA. The broad extent of the polling has delivered findings for the world's 1.4 billion Muslims with a plus or minus accuracy of 3%
Focused on the issues of Gender Justice, Terrorism, and Democracy -the film presents this remarkable data deftly, showing how it challenges the popular notion that Muslims and the West are on a collision course. Like the research, the film highlights a shared relationship that is based on facts - not fear.
Experts featured (A Partial List): Dalia Mogahed, Executive Director of the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies, John Esposito, University Professor, Georgetown University, RamiKhoury, Editor of the Daily Star (Beirut), and Kenneth Pollack, Director of Research, Saban Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institute.
