Poll takes post-9/11 pulse of Muslims in America
Foreign-born found to be most moderate

Foreign-born Muslims -- they comprise two-thirds of Muslims in the U.S. and hail from 68 countries, according to the survey -- appear to be the most moderate of all, with three-quarters speaking favorably about their community and opportunities in the U.S., and two-thirds vehemently expressing unfavorable views of Al Qaeda.

Yet Muslim attitudes about U.S. foreign policy are unique in some contexts. Only 40 percent of Muslims in America believe that the Sept. 11 attacks were carried out by Arabs.

The survey results have been well-received by Muslim organizations, although several disputed the poll's estimate of the Muslim population in the U.S. as about 2.35 million. They said the figure is closer to 6 million to 7 million.

22% of Canadians believe 9/11 was an inside job

One in 5 Canadians sees 9/11 as U.S. plot - agoracosmopolitan.com

One in five Canadians believes the attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001, had nothing to do with Osama Bin Laden and were actually a plot by influential Americans, according to a poll released that had been released by Ipsos-Reid. The cited poll found that 22 percent of Canadians, and 26 percent of young Canadians, agree with the theory that 9/11 was "an inside job". The number was the highest, at 32 percent, in Quebec, which has shown the least support for the U.S. war on terror.

The poll asked if the events of September 11, "including the thousands of American citizens who lost their lives on that day, were actually orchestrated by a group of highly influential Americans and others as part of a wider global conspiracy to profit from and gain power and who are actually protecting Osama Bin Laden from being captured."

As the 9/11 Truth Movement grows in Canada, with the growing availability of critical perspective concerning 9/11, it is likely that more and more Canadians will share the view that 9/11 was somehow an "inside job".
