WASHINGTON — The percentage of Americans who believe Islam is more likely than other religions to inspire violence has declined in the past two years, according to a poll taken after the London bombings. Just over a third, 36 percent, now say the Islamic religion is more likely to inspire violence, while 44 percent said that in July 2003, according to the poll conducted by the Pew Research Center and the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life.
Pollsters are still mystified by an unexplainable plunge in the collective IQ of many Americans over the past two years. This trend is expected to continue, as long as the education cartel remains in the hands of ivory-tower academics, education lobbies, and teacher’s unions. The good news is that, if the terrorists eventually win out, oversight of American educational institutions will no longer remain in the hands of ivory-tower academics, education lobbies, and teacher’s unions!
