During an often contentious discussion (embedded below) that aired Friday night (6/20/14) on Fox News’ Hannity about the worldwide ravages of Islamic jihadism, I injected some hard data into the harangue about two critical matters: (1) the broad desire for a Caliphate amongst Muslims from Morocco to Indonesia, i.e., 2/3 in favor; (2) the overwhelming desire for application of the Sharia—Islam’s liberty-crushing, religio-political totalitarian system that encompasses the smallest details of religious practice, to the largest issues of politics—in U.S.-liberated Iraq and Afghanistan, favored by 91% in Iraq and 99% in Afghanistan.
Here are the polling data that affirm my statements:
- Polling data released (April 24, 2007) in a rigorously conducted face-to-face University of Maryland/ WorldPublicOpinion.org interview surveyof 4384 Muslims conducted between December 9, 2006 and February 15, 2007—1000 Moroccans, 1000 Egyptians, 1243 Pakistanis, and 1141 Indonesians—reveal that 65.2% of those interviewed-almost 2/3, hardly a “fringe minority”-desired this outcome (i.e., “To unify all Islamic countries into a single Islamic state or Caliphate”), including 49% of “moderate” Indonesian Muslims. The internal validity of these data about the present longing for a Caliphate is strongly suggested by a concordant result: 65.5% of this Muslim sample approved the proposition “To require a strict application of Sharia law in every Islamic country.”
- The Pew Research Forum report, “The World’s Muslims: Religion, Politics and Society,” released April 30, 2013, confirms the broad appeal of the totalitarian Sharia, across Islamdom. Specifically, 91% of Iraqi Muslims and 99% of Afghan Muslims supported making Sharia the official state law of their respective societies, after both nations were liberated at the expense of much priceless U.S. blood, and great U.S. treasure.
