Anti-Muslim bias

Nearly half of Americans admit to harboring prejudice against Muslims and negative feelings about Islam, according to the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies.

The level of prejudice (43 percent admit "a little") is more than twice as high as feelings against Buddhists, Christians and Jews.

Researchers found Americans ignorant of non-Christian faiths — percent had little or no knowledge of Islam, 72 percent little or no knowledge of Buddhism and half little or no knowledge of Judaism.

The natural man in me harbors some prejudicial feelings against Muslims too, because of Islamic Fascism and Jihad against us, but knowing that they are following a false religion (Christ is the only true God) I need to pray for them because they are lost.
