Are Muslims Violent?

The new nationwide survey of 2,002 adults, conducted June 24-July 8 by the Pew Research Center and the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, shows that 44% of Americans say that Islam is more likely than other religions to encourage violence among its followers, a sharp rise from 25% who held this view in March 2002. 

A separate Pew Research Center study found that nearly half the public thinks that half or more Muslims worldwide hold anti-American views, up from just a third who felt this way in 2002.

What say ye?

I think there are good and bad in every faith and race,
I once lived in a very over populated Asian community, many had a chip on their shoulders about the British getting more jobs than them.......yet they were living in our country. But on the whole as I have said there are good and bad within all societies.

Have a good day.

People bearing the name Christians have been very violent over the centuries.

I don't think it is good for us to be fearful or suspicious of Muslims. Be wise, be sober, but not fearful.
