Muslims, democracy and liberty

Kelly James Clark, Senior Research Fellow at Grand Valley State University’s Kaufman Interfaith Institute, examines the findings of the Pew Research Center’s recently published survey of Muslims in non-Western countries. He concludes:

“When all of the data on democracy and liberty are added to data collected about American Muslims, one thing rings loud and clear: Muslims around the world are in favor of peace, harmony, liberty, and tolerance. The stereotype of the Muslim terrorist must finally be laid to rest — this is the view of a very small minority. Those in the West should stop judging Islam in the light of this very small minority.”
