No repeat after me :
Only a minority of muslims support ISIS.
You speak Arabic? MEMRI isn't trustryworthy.
No, but I trust the one who gave me the link, a former muslim who speak perfectly arabic. He do an amazing job.
Great post but you make the mistake of assuming that Al J represents all Muslims. Al J is a Sunni organization and as such is pretty much an arm of the Gulf States headed by El Saud.
Saudi Arabia is the worlds biggest supporter of extremist Islamist groups. Taliban, Al Qaeda/Al Nusra, ISIS, Al Shabaab, Boko Haram, MB, and a host of other similar groups all over the world share the same Saudi inspired Salafist ideology.
The Saud has been exporting this ideology all over the world for decades and supporting and often arming these groups. Al J, is an arm of the Saud so of course the largely Salafi viewing audience support these groups.
A whole lot of Muslims are not Salafi Islamist.
Salafism is not the only problem, there is other violent movement like takrifism.
Takfri is part of the same Saudi ideology. Takfri just means that they hate other Muslims who do not subscribe to their extremist Saudi inspired Islamist ideology.
The vast majority of Muslims do NOT support the US & Israeli (1) created ISIS or terrorism against civilians according to an earlier Gallup poll (2011)
"Muslim attitudes toward terrorism"
EXCERPT "A Gallup poll published in 2011, "suggests that one's religious identity and level of devotion have little to do with one's views about targeting civilians." The results of the survey suggested that "human development and governance - not piety or culture" were the strongest factors in explaining the public's view of violence toward civilians. In a Gallup World Poll in 2011, residents of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member states were less likely to justify the targeting and killing of civilians than residents of non-OIC states:
In Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member states, 18% believe military attacks on civilians justified and 14% believe individual attacks on civilians justified.
In non-OIC states, 24% believe military attacks on civilians justified and 17% believe individual attacks on civilians justified.
In a regional breakdown, Gallup found that North Americans were most likely to justify military attacks on civilians, while residents of the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region were most likely to oppose them. CONTINUED
(1) "Israeli Defense Minister Confirms Israel Backing Of ISIS in Syria"
EXCERPT "Washington created and supports ISIS, along with other anti-government terrorists in Syria and elsewhere. NATO, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other regional rogue states supply them with weapons and other material support.
So does Israel. In June 2015, the Times of Israel quoted former Israeli defense minister Moshe Ya’alon, saying
“(W)e’ve assisted (anti-government terrorist groups in Syria on) two conditions. That they don’t get too close to (Israel’s) border, and…don’t touch the Druze.”CONTINUED
