DEBUTING TODAY!!!: Under development at our secret laboratories for years, today JQWorld unveils a new feature for your benefit: The JQWorld "Translate-O-Matic," your FREE virtual translation machine, that deciphers the MSM's jihadist-appeasing/whitewashing spin, so that YOU can CLEARLY understand what's being said!!!
SEE UPDATES AT END: Other worthy bloggers analyze this story from similar angles --- and often in more depth than I have time for at the moment.
As if JQWorld hasn't documented quite enough instances of how the MSM will contort itself into poses that a circus performer would admire, in order to distort the reality of radical Islamism in America, along comes this jewel, concerning a new Pew poll of U.S. Muslims:
Well, that's a comforting thought! That is, until one delves just a bit deeper into the actual numbers. Keep in mind that there are an estimated 2.35 million Muslims living in the U.S. "13% believe that suicide bombings against civilians... to defend Islam... are justified, at least sometimes."
"13% believe that suicide bombings against civilians... to defend Islam... are justified, at least sometimes."
JQWorld Translate-O-Matic:305,000 U.S. Muslims believe that suicide bombings against civilians are justified.
"That sentiment is strongest among those younger than 30," of whom 26% believe that suicide bombings against civilians are justified, at least rarely.
JQWorld Translate-O-Matic:OK, well, let's assume that half the U.S. Muslim population (1.175 million) is under 30. That means that 305,500 believes this.
"Only 5 percent of U.S. Muslims expressed favorable views of the terrorist group al-Qaida."
JQWorld Translate-O-Matic: 117,500 U.S. Muslims admire al Qaida.
"Six in 10 said they are concerned about a rise in Islamic extremism in the U.S."
JQWorld Translate-O-Matic: 40% of U.S. Muslims (940,000) are not concerned about a rise in Islamic extremism in the U.S.
"One third of U.S. Muslims believe it was wrong for the U.S. to invade Afghanistan (after the 9/11 attacks)."JQWorld Translate-O-Matic: 775,000 (33% of) U.S. Muslims believe it was wrong of the U.S. to give Afghanistan an ultimatum after 9/11: "Hand over al Qaida, or face the wrath of the American military," and then to attack when Afghanistan refused to do so.
Specifically in regards to the number of U.S. Muslims who endorse suicide bombings against civilians.
"It is a hair-raising number," said Radwan Masmoudi, president of the Washington-based Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy, which promotes the compatibility of Islam with democracy.
JQWorld Translate-O-Matic:Amen. And if you have a strong enough stomach, you might take a jog over to the following JQWorld thread, to see how British Muslims react to similar questions, and more probing ones --- as a preview of what is coming to America:
But if you'd like to return to a comfort zone, consider this timeless, equivocating reaction from one of America's biggest concentrations of Islamists (as opposed to Muslims) in the aforementioned AP story:
said Eide Alawan, who directs interfaith outreach at the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn, Mich., one of the nation's largest mosques. He said killing innocent people contradicts Islam.
"We have crazies just like other faiths have them,"
JQWorld Translate-O-Matic: According to the Islamists in Dearborn(istan) and elsewhere, there really are no innocent people in America or the U.K. or Australia, etc., first, because we are infidels; second, because we have had the audacity to respond to the war that jihadists have declared against us; and third, because we support Israel's right to self-defense. Radical Muslim Paramilitary Compounds Flourishing Across The United States And it's a wonder why the six New Jersey jihadists thought they would really be able to get away with their planned assault on Ft. Dix, being that the MSM is so preoccupied with Paris Hilton's prospective cell-mate, Britney Spears's inability to remain clothed in public, the Donald-Rosie spat, and the 2008 presidential money derby to expose the real numbers, and the real threat facing America from radical Islamism.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Islamist word games, and the MSM that gravitates to it like a kitten to warm milk.
EXTRA!!! Now, if you're feeling like you have a really strong stomach... check this out:
And I'm sure that the MSM's and the American educational system's lulling of our citizens and kids into unawareness of what is really going on re jihad around the world and right here on U.S. soil, has absolutely nothing to do with their enabing of a leftist ambulance-chasing demagogue like John Edwards to proclaim that there is no "global war on terror," to deny that jihadists have declared war on us, and to dismiss such statements as "bumper sticker slogans," here.
No, according to the rabid leftists and Dhimmicrats who keep sending me hate emails, I'm just a racist, Islamophobic, brainwashed, rightwing, warmongering, paranoid BushBot.
Coming from them, I take such accusations as a badge of honor, and an indication that I'm right on target. So, thanks for the encouragement, you seething leftist jihad-appeasing loonbatted nutjobs. And as soon as my schedule lightens up a bit, I'll redouble my efforts.
Have a nice day.

UDPATE, MAY 26: NEWSWEEK COLUMNIST - AND ISLAMIST ACTIVIST - DECRIES REPORTING ON PEW SURVEY
In another blockbuster analysis, Little Green Footballs reveals the hysterical bias of a (supposedly unbiased) Newsweek columnist in her attempt to spin the findings of the Pew survey as (of course) Islamophobia. LGF: "According to Ms Ali, we should all focus on the good news, and forget about the disturbingly large percentage of US Muslims who admit they think it might be OK to blow themselves up to kill infidels."
On the bright side, I'm sure that the American MSM is going to announce a collective "mea culpa," and start to cover this incredible story in a responsible, reality-based, America-loving fashion, any time now...
... any time now...
... any time now...
... any time now...
Have a nice day.
UPDATE, JUNE 5: IN SURVEY, 60% OF BRITISH MUSLIMS DENY MUSLIM INVOLVEMENT IN 7/7 LONDON ATTACKS
LGF has the videohere.
It's worth asking: Given that the Muslim (Islamist) perpetrators recorded farewell videos prior to their suicide mission, and they were caught on video as they entered the train stations and buses, and the M.O. of the attacks was a carbon copy of other jihadist strikes in Madrid, etc., how long will it be before the American versions of the radical imams that preach this kind of denial, spur American Muslims to deny that Islamists were behind the 9/11 attacks? (Whoops, the rabid American left is already wwaaaaaayyyyyyy ahead of them on this one)
Especially to those peaceful American Muslims who claim to be horrified that such lies and suicide attacks could be committed in the name of their religion, yet who remain silent in the face of outrages such as this.
