Why Don't Americans Like Muslims?

by Spengler - Augusst 17th, 2010 - Asia Times

It is hard to find consistent polling data about American attitudes towards Islam. The largest polling organizations, Pew and Gallup, draw funding from organizations with a vested interest in promoting a benign view of Islam. Nonetheless, the results are striking: in a Gallup inquiry published in January 2010, Americans had an "unfavorable" view of Islam by a margin of 53%-42%, with 31% holding a strongly negative view. That contrasts with 15% for Judaism and 4% for Christianity.

This is an excellent article which helps explain, not only the way Americans feel about Islam, but why. Very worthwhile read.
