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

Following on a poll of Muslim populations in Morocco, Egypt, Pakistan and Indonesia that showed only 25% of these people accepted the official identification of the perpetrators of 9/11, comes a new poll focused on American Muslims by the respected Pew Research Center in DC.

Muslim Americans: Middle Class and Mostly Mainstream

May 22, 2007

The first-ever, nationwide, random sample survey of Muslim Americans finds them to be largely assimilated, happy with their lives, and moderate with respect to many of the issues that have divided Muslims and Westerners around the world.

The Pew Research Center conducted more than 55,000 interviews to obtain a national sample of 1,050 Muslims living in the United States. Interviews were conducted in English, Arabic, Farsi and Urdu. The resulting study, which draws on Pew's survey research among Muslims around the world, finds that Muslim Americans are a highly diverse population, one largely composed of immigrants. Nonetheless, they are decidedly American in their outlook, values and attitudes. This belief is reflected in Muslim American income and education levels, which generally mirror those of the public...

...Relatively few Muslim Americans believe the U.S.-led war on terror is a sincere effort to reduce terrorism, and many doubt that Arabs were responsible for the 9/11 attacks. Just 40% of Muslim Americans say groups of Arabs carried out those attacks.

I'm actually surprised the

I'm actually surprised the number isn't higher.

In America are subjected to the same propaganda as everyone else. In order for us to truly succeed, part of what has to happen is for the 5 companies that currently own all of America's media need to be broken up into 100's of different companies.

Muslims are in denial for different reasons than Americans.

The official story (coupled with "blowback"), provides a false venue of empowerment for the Muslim community; in much the same way Oklahoma city probably provided for the radical-right-wing-malitia community...for a time anyway.

What the hell are you

What the hell are you talking about? Who says Muslims are in denial? There is not one shred of credible evidence that these attacks were carried out by Muslims.

There may have been a few real Arabs on the four flights, but they were manipulated there much the same way Lee Harvey Oswald was manipulated into the Dallas Book Depository on Nov. 22, 1962. "I didn't shoot anyone, I'm just a patsy," was what Oswald said after being captured; and the same would have been said by Satam Suqami if he had not been assassinated by the real hijackers in the opening moments of the takeover of AAL11. (For those who haven't been doing their research, Suqami was sitting in seat 10B on AAL11, the seat number identified by Betty Ong as belonging to an "injured passenger."

Five and a half years after 9/11, there still is no evidence, let alone proof, that the men hijacking the planes were Arabs or Muslims at all. It is just as likely that these men were agents of a foreign intelligence agency, who were dark-skinned and disguised as Arabs, who were impersonating Arabs for the purpose of framing Arabs for the crime of the century.

You're missing the point.

He's saying that the average muslim in the general population, who still believes the official story, might be suffering from denial for different reasons than anglo-americans. Muslims who still believe the official story feel empowered by the idea that their co-religionist brothers "struck back" at "The Great Satan" for all its injustices. Some muslims WANT to believe the official story because they are proud that America got taught a lesson.

Again, I don't mean to be rude, but some of us should check our emotional responses before typing a reply. You totally missed what this person was saying. Reading comprehension. People are so quick, so eager to jump all over any perceived racism that they often ignore the content of the message. Calm down and soak in some of the meaning. There was no accusation or derision of muslims here.

Simpler explanation

They could be scared of being accused of being unpatriotic or terrorist sympathizers. People don't always tell the truth in polls. Even Americans that are not Muslims might hesitate to tell a stranger they don't believe the official story, whether for fear of retribution or just not wanting to appear unpatriotic.


in your post you answered a question I was asking myself for quite a long time: so there is 5 main companies that owns your media. Now do you know the name of the owners of these companies? Thanks.

You can't hide a lie for long. Truth shall come out.

I stand corrected...

Apparently there are 8 companies that own the media.

I don't know why even more

I don't know why even more Muslims dont see through the deception. They are using the most radical Muslim extremist groups to scare the American people into accepting a military style police state. It is so obvious as to be almost embarrassing. How in the world can it be that so many people cannot put two and two together. Too much TV?

Check out my new YouTube video about this very theme - "TERROR ALERT.....FEAR"

What we REALLY need to do is

What we REALLY need to do is translate films like Terrorstorm and 911 Mysteries, 911 Press For Truth and so on into Arabic... Then you will see your awakening..

We need subtitles in Arabic, Farsi, Urdu, Russian...

If anyone can and wants to do that , there's a great free subtitling program called Div X Media Subtiltler at

this program works with Arabic and Russian signs too..

Oh, and we should really also put English subtitles on the films for the def and the hearing impaired

American Muslims of all

American Muslims of all people should know that this war on terror is a bullshit story. They know that they and their communities are not radical and are in fact well-adjusted to the values and ways of American life. The main consumers of this war on terror are ignorant white middle-class Americans to whom bigotry, fear, and hatred come easily and who on a perverse level enjoy the edge-of-your-seat storyline and military engagement. The profiteers are a military-industrial-complex and foreign policy elite. I've just about lost my faith in this holier-than-thou and dangerously ignorant country of fools.

the terror imams

in western countries are tolerated / controlled by our own intelligence agencies, i'm sure there's plenty of moderate muslims in london for example that don't realize that MI5 / MI6 ran for years the brixton and finsbury mosques.

they hear of radicalists but don't realize the connections - that'd be my guess, i drink quite a bit and end up in cabs here in calgary and rarely fail to mention the truth behind 9/11 to the drivers - many of them arabs (predominantly lebanese these parts).

most of them suspect something's up but are glad to hear that there is organized and orderly information out there.

i have been reaching out the the local muslims in my own way - this is a segment of the population that i believe is somewhat unaware of 9/11 truthers in general - not that they don't know that the official story is bullshit.

such a good point. its so

such a good point. its so hard for muslims to be honest about anything "war on terror" related in this country. just a quick story, i was listening to a local radio show the other day that i catch in the car from time to time. it completely sucks but i would rather listen to talk than music. so anyway, these guys would always do a parody of a chinese guy singing karaoke and it would be the typical stereotype of a chinese guy. well apparently they got in trouble because people from the asian community didnt appreciate the stereotypes and they were forced to stop the parody. so what did they do? they decided to change the parody to a muslim guy. guess what? no complaints while they make like every muslim is bloodthirsty and do a stereotypical "arab" voice. the numbers are no doubt much higher than this poll indicate. shit, im white and i occasionally wonder if my phones have been tapped, internet records searched etc. based on the type of activism im involved in. i cant imagine how paranoid i would be if i was of middle eastern decent and thought like i do. i honestly dont know if i would have the courage to be an open 9/11 activist.

muslims, jews facing the truth

my American/Pakistani (Am citizen) muslim friend's million-plus business took a dump after 9/11...former business associates and clients no longer wanted to associate with him. He was on several occasions victim of racial profiling while driving by police. He reached out to form AJMA to promote understanding about islam and between people of differing faiths in our community. when i started talking to him about 9/11 at first he could not believe. but then he turned around. it must be a relief for many muslims to know it was not a muslim/Arab plot, but they might have a new anger...more justified than for any others, to have been falsely accused by the the country they have adopted and loved and served,and the people they have befriended. the ultimate betrayal.

my jewish friends are having a hard time with this...perfectly caring, intelligent people, cannot buy into the demolition science, and...I think, cannot let go of their need to blame the muslim/arabs/'s like how many republicans can let go and face the mistake they made in voting for bush? Then to blame israel? that is very difficult for them.

how do we help people drop their alliances, allegiance and alignments and open up to truth, justice and equality? why do we always need an enemy?

great post, kate

i'm having a very difficult time with my family, which includes both Jews and bush supporters (not that they're mutually exclusive), and my friends (just a few holdouts remain). the most receptive people to 9/11 truth, in my opinion, are Muslims.

An Arab muslin in AmeriKa ..courageous

What they are not saying: if not Arabs, then who?

9/11 Was an INSIDE JOB!

One more thing; An Arab muslin in AmeriKa called from out of the blue with someone asking them if Arabs were responsible for 911 has to be somewhat courageous
in this era of wiretaps, spying, suspicion, cultivated hatred, to provide their true beliefs. The true number must be higher..much higher.

Afraid to speak

I think it would be courageous for them to say the official conspiracy isn't true. I bet the number of doubters is higher but it isn't a good world for them anymore. To dis the official story could be used against them. I bet secretly most of them know this wasn't possible. Also the words supposedly stated by the "terrorists" are not the words used when one is possibly going to die.

Meanwhile, peace needs truth.


why didn't any of you comment when i posted this exact same story? sure, reprehensor changed the title to include the word 'was' and put Arabs in quotations for some reason, but it's the same information that was included in my blog entry.
anyway, go talk to Muslims in public. it's very interesting to have one-on-one conversations with them (not that we don't have Muslim members here at 911blogger). i've never had one of them express incredulity when i bring up 9/11 truth the way yuppies almost unanomously do.

here's my neglected blog entry with the same story

Mainstream UK news; Survey:

Mainstream UK news;

Survey: 'government hasn't told truth about 7/7'
A quarter of Muslims polled think the authorities involved with staging the 7/7 London bombings.

The Survey
Channel 4 News, with GFK NOP, has commissioned a survey to reveal the Muslim community's attitudes towards the 'official narrative' surrounding the 7/7 bombings revealing that: 59% of the 500 people polled believe that the government has not told the public the whole truth about the 7th July bombings.

52% believe that the British security services have "made up" evidence to convict terrorist suspects.

24% believe the four men identified as the July 7th bombers were not actually responsible for the attacks.

68% believe that the Muslim community does not bear any responsibility for the emergence of extremists willing to attack UK targets. Although 58% felt that the community should be doing more.

We are working to make things right

I think I speak for everyone here. Our goal is to awaken all of humanity to the Fraud so corrections can be made.

All races and religions

are guilty of injustices. However, I'm often somewhat ashamed to be white and of European descent, because I'm pretty sure that "my people" have been responsible for an inordinate amount of "evil" throughout the ages.

But quite frankly, I don't feel any kinship with the control freaks, racists, elitists, and megalomaniacs at the helm of the world's power structure, or the armies of fascists and "good germans" they've created in my country.

Count me as another person who is trying to make things right, for the sake of muslims and ALL people. We have ALL been wronged.

maybe, but...

We whiteys have also done a ton of good things. I don't see any sense in any racism in any direction; I believe "all men are created equal" and we each do what we want with that equal apportionment of humanity. Good and bad arise from every corner, because none of us are angels or devils.

Good and bad arise from every corner, because none of us are angels or devils. In a metaphorical sense the converse can be said; Good and bad arise from every corner because all of us are both angels and devils.
