“The secret of success is making your vocation your vacation.” – Twain
Percent of Muslims who favor making sharia the official law in their country.
The map isn’t that accurate. If House Republicans were polled, you’d see a different trend in the USA.
Of Course – Texas
Turkey – the country, not the bird. A factoid.
In Turkey, Red and Green Areas Have the Same Population
That map of % of Muslims who’d want sharia law didn’t sink in at first, but then I mentally colored in the countries that are already Muslim law. I think it would be interesting to see if they did that.
Is Russia in that 40-50% range?
(1) There are very few Great Russians who are Muslims.
(2) There aren’t Muslims left in Chechnya. The place was depopulated (and relocated) and residents were replaced by Great Russians (mostly Orthodox Christians)
(3) As I understand it, the data is based on the opinion of the few Muslims who remain in Russia, many of whom are unhappy with the Russian government as presently constituted.
(4) I think that the Muslims in the US may be under-sampled in the map – based on my experience. A lot of Muslims who I have encountered would seem to prefer Sharia.
“that the Muslims in the US may be under-sampled in the map”
Depends on who made the map, but I’d bet real money there is a concerted effort to obscure the proportion of Muslims who want Sharia for the US. Full disclosure would interfere with the boiling of the frog, doncha know. Ironically, some of the most vocal advocates for importation of Muslims are exactly the persons who would be thrown off the rooftops first.
Oh, and SiGB beat me to it. They need to update the map to show countries that already suffer under Sharia. Perhaps cross-hatching would be suitable.
Is the eastern green area in Turkey predominately Kurdish?
Kurds are mostly east-southeast. The Northern coast between Sinope and Trebizond was Pretty heavily Greek and believe it or not some Genoese back in the day, and wasn’t really ever Kurdish. The Northeast is where the Armenians used to be and probably are still some Armenian ethnics, anyways. Probably quite a few Georgian-ish people and other caucasus types up in the NE, too.
