MUSLIM SURVEY RESULTS ON SHARIA LAW

Sharia Law is Islamic law that trumps other laws. The awakening part of this report is the percentage of Muslims who believe Sharia Law should be imposed on everyone, whether they want it or not.

 

Muslim support for sharia law growing in many parts of the world
The Muslim Brotherhood dream of a worldwide caliphate governed by sharia law continues to gain momentum around the world.
Consider the results of four years of public opinion surveys of Muslims conducted by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life (excerpts below; more detail here).
For instance, Pew found strong support for making sharia law the official law in 18 countries. In these 18 countries, 65% to 99% of Muslim respondents supported this.
As the Pew study notes:

…solid majorities in most of the countries surveyed across the Middle East and North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and Southeast Asia favor the establishment of sharia, including 71% of Muslims in Nigeria, 72% in Indonesia, 74% in Egypt and 89% in the Palestinian territories.

To paraphrase the line from The Sound of Music song, “How do you solve a problem like sharia?”
You acknowledge it exists, you understand what it is, and you resist it.
You can count on ACT! for America, the nation’s largest grassroots national security organization, to continue doing just that.


From preface and exec summaries:
-This report was produced by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life – based on public opinion surveys conducted by the Pew Research Center between 2008 and 2012 in a total of 39 countries and territories on three continents – covering every country that has more than 10 million Muslims except for a handful (including China, India, Saudi Arabia and Syria) where political sensitivities or security concerns prevented opinion research among Muslims… The global survey of Muslims was conducted in two waves. Fifteen sub-Saharan African countries with substantial Muslim populations were surveyed in 2008-2009, and some of those findings previously were analyzed in the report “Tolerance and Tension: Islam and Christianity in Sub-Saharan Africa.” An additional 24 countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Europe were surveyed in 2011-2012; results from all 39 countries are analyzed here as well as in the August 2012 report on Muslims’ religious beliefs and practices.
Sharia Law:
-The percentage of Muslims who say they want sharia to be “the official law of the land” varies widely around the world, from fewer than one-in-ten in Azerbaijan (8%) to near unanimity in Afghanistan (99%). But solid majorities in most of the countries surveyed across the Middle East and North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and Southeast Asia favor the establishment of sharia, including 71% of Muslims in Nigeria, 72% in Indonesia, 74% in Egypt and 89% in the Palestinian territories.
