Flat Earth Society

Based upon a study by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, Daniel Pipes reports:
In not one Muslim population polled does a majority believe that Arabs carried out the 9/11 attacks on the United States. The proportions range from a mere 15 percent in Pakistan holding Arabs responsible, to 48 percent among French Muslims. Confirming recent negative trends in Turkey, the number of Turks who point the finger at Arabs has declined from 46 percent in 2002 to 16 percent today. In other words, in every one of these ten Muslim communities, a majority views 9/11 as a hoax perpetrated by the U.S. government, Israel, or some other agency.

dzgthat's a genuinely disturbing statistic. i certainly hope it sparks some debate about the importance of a free, secular press, and strong secular education systems in muslim societies.
