Only 40% of U.S. Muslims believe 9/11 carried out by Arabs

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.

It should be noted that

this number pertains to Muslim Americans. A poll of 4 Muslim countries released in the last few weeks showed less than 25% believed bin Laden was responsible for 9/11. In Pakistan, the number was 3%.

duly noted

but doesn't the title of the blog kinda clear that up?
by Muslim Americans are you referring to South America, Central America, North America, the United States of America, some combination of the bunch, or all of them. just kidding, haha. thanks for the info.

It's important to stress

It's important to stress that most muslims in the world think flying an airplane into a building on purpose is strictly forbidden for a muslim. I also only heard shock, confusement and outrage from all kinds of muslims. I have never heard anyone support it. I am sure muslims were amongst the first to realize something was totally wrong about the official story.
I remember even Hizbollah in Lebanon condemmed it.
Whoever did it had little or no knowledge of Islam..

thought it'd be fun

to have this at the top of tracker with the same story that reprehensor submitted. ; )
