62% of Turkish Men Support Wife Beating

A survey of 3500 Turkish men conducted by the University of Kirikkale and the organisation “Happy Children” prove what is anyway a truism in Turkey: of course most Turkish men consider violence against women to be completely normal, sensible and practical.

28 per cent of those polled thought violence against spouses to be indispensable: it was needed to discipline them. 34 per cent were more moderate and thought violence against spouses was only “necessary” “occasionally”. [FRONTPAGEMAG.COM] Read more

World's Muslims Reveal Their "Literalist, Supremacist, And Brutal View"

.... Islam is the world’s second-largest religion, numbering some 1.6 billion humans [no, that is the Muslim figure -- the neutral figure, arrived at by adding up the Muslim populations of each country, and not merely accepting the Muslim practices of 1) assumming that everyone in a Muslim-dominated country must be counted as Muslim and 2) the exaggerated figures that, for propaganda purposes of the "Islam-is-the-world's-fastest-growing-religion" and "we-are-outbreeding-you-the-kuffars" type ] (behind only Christianity’s 2.2 billion).

There is, thus, enormous diversity of opinion on many issues of doctrine and practice, and essentializing Islam as either “peaceful” or “violent” is fraught with peril. Nonetheless, this latest Pew study provides empirical evidence that many — far too many — Muslims cling to a literalist, supremacist and indeed brutal view of their religion. Insha’allah, this will change eventually — but time is not necessarily on our side. [The Iconoclast] Read more

More than half of all Germans view Islam as a threat to their country and believe it does not belong in the Western world, according to a major new study on religious attitudes in Germany.

The findings confirm the results of dozens of other surveys, and reflect a growing divide between the views of ordinary Germans and those of Europe's multicultural elites, who, in the quest for "diversity," have been promoting mass immigration from Muslim countries for decades.

The study, entitled, Religion Monitor 2013: Religiousness and Cohesion in Germany (currently available only in German) was produced by the Bertelsmann Foundation, one of the most influential think tanks and lobbying groups in Europe, and a strong proponent of "progressive" causes such as multiculturalism and global governance.

According to the survey -- designed to measure the "most important forms and intensity of the religiosity" of German citizens -- the majority of Germans view Islam as "foreign, different and threatening." [Gatestone Institute] Read more
