A Rising Tide of Fury

From A Rising Tide of Fury:

Last week the University of Maryland Program on International Policy Attitudes (PIPA) released its most recent survey of Muslim attitudes on America, terrorism and related topics, after surveying attitudes in Egypt, Pakistan, Indonesia and Morocco. From 73% in Indonesia to 92% percent in Egypt, Muslims believe that America's goal is "to weaken and divide the Islamic world." Assuming that these four countries' populations represent worldwide Muslim views, about 80% of the 1.4 billion Muslims see America as hostile or an enemy to Islam.
