Inside Islam: What a Billion Muslims Really Think

Inside Islam: What a Billion Muslims Really Think
58:40 | 2010

Categories: Documentary, History, Faith and Spirituality

This documentary feature explores the expertly gathered opinions of Muslims around the globe, as revealed in the world's first major opinion poll conducted by preeminent polling organization Gallup. 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, and they continue to generate passionate disagreements in the public square. Yet for all the 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 U.S. Experts featured include 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.

All you need to do is spend some time in the islamic world to know that most of this 'documentary' is a load of crap. The woman narrator spews so many lies, both of fact and of omission that it's almost unwatchable. PEW Research , which has done far more extensive polling has results that almost diametrically oppose this bit of 'fluff'

People.... please do your own research. As stated below..... this movie is pure propaganda. They have an agenda of making the unknowing American except Islam as a peaceful religion. The show does not talk at all about the scriptures that they all read....as well as the history of their originator of their book. Mohammad's life reflect the words he has written..... The west calls those who are following it's teachings as the "radicals"...... but it is more of a radical approach to be peaceful and tolerant with other non-muslims. The Quran is clear about the Jews, and about the infidels. (non-muslims) My prayer is that this movie does not influence anyones beliefs of islam, but rather incourage the vieweers to research more!
