“The Myth of the ‘Radical Minority’”

“46% of Lebanese Muslims have favourable views of Hezbollah” … so what? Iran’s threat, as always?

  • @thespainreport: National poll in @elespanolcom: if a general election were held today: PP -20 PSOE +10 Podemos -26 Ciudadanos +38 Vox would get first seat.

  • @JulianAssange: Between corruption scandals and polarization over Catalonia, Spain's ruling party PP continues to fall in polls.

  • @lluisgerard: And yet they are the most voted party. Pro-155 parties gain votes and Podemos loses a lot. So, Spain will never accept a Catalan referendum

Japan general elections 2017 - too fishy polls.

@ShingetsuNews: Yomiuri poll is all good news for PM Abe: threat from Party of Hope fading and CDPJ gains only marginal support.

@ShingetsuNews: If NHK has it right, the Party of Hope has collapsed to former Democratic Party levels of support, and PM Abe's LDP heading for landslide.

@ShingetsuNews: Opposition parties all receive miserable support ratings in latest Jiji poll, with CDPJ (leader) more-or-less in line with Hope & Communists

Too fishy - yes I think so - given people’s criticism against PM Abe prevalent in social media. Former LDP politician Katsuhiko Shirakawa (白川勝彦) also raises doubt, in his latest blog post, about Japanese MSM’s extraordinary election coverage that strongly suggests LDP’s landslide victory. He says we may see surprising results in the upcoming Oct. 22 elections. Don’t be fooled by manipulation!

“The ‘moderate’ side of Islam”

Throughout the US presidential race last year, I witnessed, mainly via Twitter, MSM’s intense manipulation of public opinion in favor of Hillary. Since then, I’ve become highly skeptical about this kind of opinion poll. What methodology did they employ for this research? But more importantly, to try to evaluate a religion using the result of an opinion poll is, I believe, a stupid attempt.

US The Biggest Threat To World Peace In 2013 – Poll

from anarcho-queer.tumblr.com (Jan. 3 2014):

The US has been voted as the most significant threat to world peace in a survey across 68 different countries. Anti-American sentiment was not only recorded in antagonistic countries, but also in many allied NATO partners like Turkey and Greece.

A global survey conducted by the Worldwide Independent Network and Gallup at the end of 2013 revealed strong animosity towards the US’s role as the world’s policeman. Citizens across over 60 nations were asked: “Which country do you think is the greatest threat to peace in the world today?”

The US topped the list, with 24 percent of people believing America to be the biggest danger to peace. Pakistan came second, with 8 percent of the vote and was closely followed by China with 6 percent. Afghanistan, Iran, Israel and North Korea came in joint fourth place with 5 percent of the vote.

The threat from the US was rated most highly in the Middle East and North Africa, those areas most recently affected by American military intervention. Moreover, the survey showed that even Americans regard their country as a potential threat with 13 percent of them voting the US could disrupt global status quo.

Latin America expressed mixed feelings towards its northerly neighbor, with Peru, Brazil and Argentina all flagging the US as the most dangerous country.

After its numerous threats of a strike on Iran, many countries voted Israel was the biggest threat to prosperity. Morocco, Lebanon and Iraq all chose Israel as the number one danger to world peace.

Support for Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe slid in opinion polls after his ruling coalition steamrolled through parliament a tough secrecy act, Reuters reported. Support for the government fell 13.9 points to 54.6 percent in a poll by broadcaster JNN, the lowest since he took office. However, backing for the main opposition Democratic Party rose just 0.9 point to 6.8 percent and the 30.3 percent who supported Abe's ruling Liberal Democratic Party. Abe said he should have taken more time to explain the bill carefully. Critics fear the legislation could muzzle media and allow officials to hide misdeeds.

Americans believe Russian President Vladimir Putin has been the most effective world leader in steering geo-political affairs during the Syrian chemical weapons crisis, according to an Economist/YouGov survey. Forty-nine percent of those surveyed said Putin deserves the most credit for how he handled events following US accusations that Syrian President Bashar Assad had used chemical weapons against his citizens near Damascus on August 21. Just 25 percent of respondents said US President Barack Obama was most effective. And 9 percent said Assad deserves the nod. Overall, 30 percent of Americans approve of Obama’s handling of the crisis, while 44 percent disapprove

“08:30 GMT: There’s no public support for the Western military intervention in Syria as the surveys performed in the US and its allied states reveal that people object their country’s troops fighting in yet another the Middle Eastern war.

The poll performed by Huffington Post and YouGov showed that only 25 percent of the Americans believe that military response is required after the last week’s alleged chemical attack on civilians by the Syrian government of Bashar Assad.

Just 9 percent of Britons want to see their military taking part in the Syrian conflict, which has been underway since March 2011, with surveys in France and Germany also indicating public opposition towards Western intervention.”

Americans Losing Faith: 1 in 5 Have No Religion, Atheism on the Rise

The survey, conducted by The Pew Research Center's Forum on Religion and Public Life in conjunction with PBS' Religion & Ethics Newsweekly, found that one-fifth of Americans – and nearly a third of adults under 30 – are religiously unaffiliated today. This marks the highest percentages that have ever been recorded by Pew Research Center polling.

What makes these numbers even more unsettling is the understanding that the shift away from organized religion has been steadily increasing over the past decade or so, with the most dramatic results occurring in the past five years.

Since 2007, the percentage of respondents that have claimed to be religiously unaffiliated increased from 15 percent to 20 percent of all U.S. adults in 2012. Those religiously unaffiliated individuals include more than 13 million atheists and agnostics which represent almost six percent of the U.S. population and also nearly 33 million people who say they have no particular religious affiliation at all.
