The poll reveals that thirteen percent of Syrian refugees have a positive opinion of ISIS. That’s a big, collective thumbs-up to a gang of savages who burn people alive, enslave women, behead children, and heave gay men to their deaths from rooftops. Another ten percent have a negative opinion to some extent on the terror group, though the poll doesn’t specify in what way. Perhaps that ten percent feels that ISIS isn’t killing enough gay men.
The poll also shows that thirty-one percent of Syrian refugees oppose the campaign to “degrade and ultimately destroy” ISIS.
Applying those numbers to the 1,600 Syrian refugees the Obama administration imported in the last fiscal year means the possibility of about 200 Syrian refugee ISIS supporters and a total of nearly 500 ISIS sympathizers are already here.
And Obama wonders why over half the governors in the country refuse to go along with his plan to import 10,000 Syrian refugees over the next year.
The telephone poll of 900 Syrian refugees was conducted by the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies as part of a larger survey of six hundred people in each of six Arab nations and the Palestinian territories about ISIS. The group surveyed Syrian refugees in “equal proportion” located in Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon. The survey also covered residents of Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the Palestinian territories. The poll has a margin of error rate of plus or minus four percent.
The survey results for the other Arab countries show similar levels of support for ISIS. The sole exception is Lebanon, Gateway Pundit reports, where fewer than one percent have a positive view of ISIS.
Even more supportive of ISIS than the Syrian refugees are, unsurprisingly, Palestinians. The survey shows twenty-four percent of Palestinians have a positive view of ISIS with another thirty-six percent only having a somewhat negative opinion of ISIS. The survey also shows Palestinians as the only group where fewer than fifty percent (48) support the defeat of ISIS.
