Wonder why they did not poll Qatar, Bahrain and KSA?

I also wonder if the poll was done by Muslims?

No idea, but Pew would probably have to hire the relevant language speakers in house and it doesn't seem too much of a stretch to think that a reasonable proportion of them would be muzzies.

Imagine face to face would be a little low on the "i love isis" results.

Looks like a load of 'progressive liberalist' chaff to me. I'd love to know how that survey was actually conducted. Presumably not by telephone poll, or students on the 'high street' handing out questionnaires to passers-by. It strikes me that that people in some of these countries don't have a clear idea of what ISIS actually is. People who live in mud huts and tin-roofed shacks generally don't have TV's or even radios.

A more interesting survey would have been one which shows the proportion of Muslims - living in western countries - who support ISIS. The numbers would be much higher I think.

Of course they love the caliphate. It will stop Allah from dropping their aircraft.

On a similar note:

I am friends with a lot of computer geeks from Pakistan that came from my time in charge of tech support for a web hosting company (Paks know their stuff, Indians don't in level 1 and 2 support).

Pakistanis who live in Pakistan hate ISIS (at least the computer nerds do) but the Pakistanis who live in the UK...well, they seem to dig ISIS. Much to the embarrassment of Pakistanis in Pakistan. The UK ones seem to think ISIS looks bad because of "Propaganda".

Also interesting among Pak Dorkwads is the view of Brexit and Donald Trump. They support both movements in the West but they hate them as well. The reason for the support is they feel that the west is less likely to bomb them someday (they thought Clinton's first action in office would be to bomb parts of Pakistan) but at the same time they hate them both because they are certain this would limit their chance to immigrate to either the US or to the UK.

When I asked them if Pakistan should allow Christian immigration from war torn areas in Africa they said no, not at all. That Christian nations should take Christian refugees and they understood the urge to stop foreign immigration in the West but, for their own financial reasons, they did not want that to end.

They seem to have a better grasp of what the English speaking West is than English speaking Westerners do.

The Paki's hate us out loud in public for drone strikes etc., for some public consumption with a wink and a nod. They could shut a lot of that down if they wanted to. Interesting about the Paki geeks and not surprising at all about the UK Pakis. The UK seems to tolerate and legitimize radicals, but I say again seems. I don't have firsthand knowledge of that.

PS: A guy calls the Suicide Hotline and gets switched to a Paki Call Center. When he tells the operator he is suicidal, the Call Center guy says "Do you know how to drive a truck?"

They may not have much food or teeth to chew it, but they got a either a combo DVD/TV player hooked up to a car battery or a smartphone.

How I view ISIS (10 yrs after joining this forum and I still cant post a picture).

But, proper sight picture. At this stage of the game, the barrel has bipods that are sort of like curb feelers for the blind and aged. They look like canes when the fold out.

Part of the deception plan.
