What Muslims Really Think

Apparently, they don't hate us, they just hate us rubbing their faces in it:

...[Gallup] survey's results suggest Muslims - ironically even many of the 7% classing themselves as "radical" - in fact admire the West for its democracy and freedoms. However, they do not want such things imposed on them.

"Muslims want self-determination, but not an American-imposed and defined democracy. They don't want secularism or theocracy," said the professor of Islamic Studies at Georgetown University in Washington.
There's also this:

"What the majority wants is democracy with religious values."
Mmkay, Mike Huckabee would like that part. But this part,

...The research also indicates most Muslims want guarantees of freedom of speech and would not want religious leaders to have a role in drafting constitutions.
not so much.
