What British Muslims really think

The ICM Research was done for the Channel 4 Documentary, which aired on April 13.  I've posted before about it, but herewith the direct link.
Summary from Gatestone Institute:

  • The 615-page survey found that more than 100,000 British Muslims sympathize with suicide bombers and people who commit other terrorist acts. Moreover, only one in three British Muslims (34%) would contact the police if they believed that somebody close to them had become involved with jihadists.
  • 23% of British Muslims said Islamic Sharia law should replace British law in areas with large Muslim populations.
  • 52% of the Muslims surveyed said they believe homosexuality should be illegal, compared to 22% of non-Muslim Britons. Nearly half believe it is unacceptable for a gay or lesbian to teach their children. At the same time, almost a third (31%) of British Muslims think polygamy should be legalized. Among 18-to-24-year-olds, 35% think it is acceptable to have more than one wife.
  • Thirty-nine percent of Muslims surveyed believe women should always obey their husbands, compared to 5% for non-Muslims. One in three British Muslims refuse completely to condemn the stoning of women accused of adultery.

And James Delingpole in the Speccie: "Trevor Phillips's documentary on Muslims was shocking -- but not surprising".
That's true.  At least for those paying attention.  Which means those who have followed various blogs critical of Islam(ism).
