9/11 and the Islamic World

A study released last year by the Pew Research Foundation shows that most Muslims in Islamic countries do not believe that the 9/11 attacks were carried out by Arab Jihadists.  9/11 conspiracy theories are silly, but their prevalence in the Muslim world is encouraging.  The fact that most Muslims blame non-Muslims for the attacks indicates that they disprove of them.  After all, if Muslims thought that the attacks were justified, they would claim the attackers as their own.  Many Muslims do support Jihad and Sharia law in some form or another, but the fact that so many seemingly disapprove of the 9/11 attacks is a good sign.
