Muslims tell West: 'respect Islam' The National
A large majority of Muslims say the best way for the West to improve relations with them is to "respect Islam," according to a new Gallup poll.
When asked what could improve relations, Muslims' most common reply was respect their religion. For 72 per cent, that meant not desecrating the Quran or Islam's religious symbols. More than half (52 per cent) felt the West could also show respect by treating Muslims fairly in policies that affect them.
The new Abu Dhabi Gallup Centre report calls on western governments to focus on the Middle East to improve relations with Muslims worldwide.
Gallup surveyed 123,000 people in 55 countries, including the UAE, between 2006 and 2010. The report is part of a series that will expand on the findings of Who Speaks for Islam?, a 2008 book exploring the relationship between Muslim societies and the West.
The report found that although the Middle East and North Africa accounts for only 15 to 20 per cent of all Muslims, the region has a huge influence on Muslims globally.
Between 2008 and 2009, the Mena region had the largest increase in positive sentiment towards the West.
Despite having the lowest regard for the US leadership at the end of the former US president George W Bush's administration, with just 12 per cent approving, that figure rose to 32 per cent after Barack Obama's election.
In Asia, approval dropped from 33 per cent to 30 per cent in the same period, while in Africa it rose from 72 per cent to 74 per cent.
Perhaps if Islam reformed and learned to respect others and hold them in the regard they demand, perhaps then.......
