Poll: Nearly Half of U.S. Muslims Believe That Critics of Muhammad Should Be Criminally Prosecuted

And one in eight American Muslims believe that Muhammad's critics should face the death penalty. But keep in mind that 1/8 and 46% are still minorities, so we have absolutely nothing to worry about. Indeed, we can continue focusing all our energies on the real problem: Islamophobia.

WorldNetDaily--Nearly half of 600 Muslim-American citizens polled who plan to vote in the 2012 presidential election believe parodies of Muhammad should be prosecuted criminally in the U.S., and one in eight say the offense is so serious violators should face the death penalty.

The results came in a groundbreaking scientific poll for WND by the public-opinion research and media consulting company Wenzel Strategies. It was taken Oct. 22-26 and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 3.98 percentage points.

The poll also found 40 percent of Muslims in America believe they should not be judged by U.S. law and the Constitution, but by Shariah standards.

And the big winner among Muslim-Americans in the presidential election is Barack Obama, the poll found. More than 72 percent said they are definitely supporting Obama, and another 8.5 percent are leaning that direction. Only 11 percent are for Romney. (Continue Reading.)

100% of Muslims on comment on this thread will say they do not...

The other half of muslims who say that critics of Muhammad should NOT be criminally prosecuted are using TAQQIYA. AFFLICTER-HU-AKHBAR.

I've said it once and it will make me vastly unpopular but I will say it again.

D-E-P-O-R-T....find out what it means to me.

Less muslims means:
-less terror attacks on US soil
-less taxes paid to support deadbeats milking the welfare system for all its worth
-less chance Muslim Countries can finance terrorism because of HUGE influx of deportees being shipped back. This need to happen GLOBALLY. If your population swells overnight from 15 million to 25 million you don't have a lot of money left for the Taiban/wahabis/Al Qaida because you've got to devote fast resources to managing the problem...
-less blogs complaining about the muslims not because they don't cause problems but because the places they'd be shipped back too censor the internet like crazy...and every third person in the middle east is named muhammad so it'd be hard to talk about anyone since everyone would be sure said blog was talking about them which would result in a lot of fist fights and bloody noses.

This is a ridiculous statement, using 600 people for 1.6 billion and growing. We have no idea what kind of people they asked, maybe they asked more, but only chose the numbers that mattered. I as a Muslim obviously do not like anyone to insult or parody the Prophet (S), but I do not wish death upon them. Nor do I know any other Muslim who would, and trust me, I know a lot. I went to a Christian boarding school for fiver years with a couple Muslim friends. We did not preach our religion, we did our work, had fun with our friends and played our sports. One of my friends decided to convert merely because of how he noticed how we acted. We don't drink or do any of those typical teenage rebellious acts, and he liked that. Also ANY type of government works as long as there is no corruption, but that is impossible, you know it, I know it, we all know it. And obviously Muslims would side for Obama, he is the only one taking troops out of the Middle Eastern countries, troops that are killing Muslims and US soldiers alike. Why not save both? It is also pretty obvious that more conservative people hate Muslims than liberals, have you seen FOX news? Also to that person who said Deport us, you can say deport any race or religion, you would probably get the same results but so many more backlashes. Good day.

Deleting,

That would be interesting. I would love to see the reaction. But I would love to see a pole that asks Muslims why are they living in America.

You might want to learn a little about polling and statistics before you complain. First, the poll doesn't address Muslims worldwide; it addresses U.S. Muslims. Second, 600 polled is quite enough to get an accurate estimate of nationwide percentages. Many Presidential polls typically poll 1000 people, and that's supposed to be representative of a much larger group than Muslims (voters nationwide). Third, such polls don't claim to be perfectly accurate. That's the point of the margin of error. Interviewing 600 people as representative of a larger population of Muslims yields a margin of error of roughly +/- 5%.

Hence, the only problem here is that you don't understand how polling works. There's no problem with the poll (though I understand why you're embarrassed by so many of your co-religionists despising the U.S. Constitution).

Another person,

1.6 billion and growing? You have any evidence to back up that claim?

Islam is a cult. You should know this. Cults are usually good at recruting people.

@ another person,
Who are you kidding? I come from a muslim country and I also know a lot of muslims. Over there, 100 percent of your moslem brothers want to kill anyone who would critique Mohammad. And most of the time it is Christians who get blamed. Now sir, you here in the States are influenced by Judeo-Christian morals and if you don’t want death upon those who insult your prophet, then I commend you. But then again, how do we know that you are not practicing TAQQIYA?

And in regards to deporting muslims. Why do you get so upset when someone says to you to go back to your own country? In your post, didn’t you agreed with Obama to pull troops out of Middle Eastern countries. So you agree with expelling westerners out of your countries but God forbid if we say to any moslem to be deported, all hell breaks loose. There is no consistent moslem in this world, no not one.

@Another person:
It's not about "hating Muslims" as you put it (nice try, playing the bigot card) but hating the ideology of Islam that teaches muslims to either convert, subjegate (have pay the tax until feels subdued) or killed. No other religion teaches this! No other religion commits violence to the extent that Islam does! By slandering people like this who are mearely pointing out the misbehavior of your co-coreligionist shows you care very little for freedoms, or honest discussion.

I notice you don't say anything about whether you believe there should be a penalty for critisizing/mocking Islam or Mohammad, only that it shouldn't be the death penalty. Do you?

Waiting for "another person" to provide evidence for his claims.
