I know a lot of Christians that openly support the death of anyone from the Middle East. Stupid people are everywhere.

This is true, but entire regions/counties are anti-western over there. It's like a cancer that runs through society. Not so much over here. Definitely not equal comparison.

How did you gain this knowledge about a different culture that I assume you aren't part of?

I'm not well educated in Islam, so please read my opinion with that in mind.

The problem seems to be that Islam is catalytic in motivating disaffected young men and sometimes women into expressing political and personal problems violently. Islam might not be the cause, but it is something through which political and sociological concerns are expressed, sometimes violently.

Further, there seems to be widespread approval, or indifference in middle-eastern contries.
Quote:
Recent (2009) polls show a disparity of views regarding terrorism, with between 15% and 30% of respondents in most Muslim countries surveyed holding a positive view (see [6] for the complete results) on various related issues. An average of 30% of respondents in Indonesia, Egypt, Pakistan and Morocco held positive views of groups that launch attacks against Americans, while similar numbers held a negative view or a neutral view. With regards specifically to al-Qaeda, in Egypt, 21% of respondents supported their attacks on Americans, while 33% opposed attacks on Americans but supported al-Qaeda's goals and 28% opposed both al-Qaeda's attacks and goals; the remainder held no strong opinion. These numbers were 9%, 19%, and 22% respectively in Indonesia; 16%, 15%, and 22% in Pakistan; and 9%, 31%, and 26% in Morocco. With regards to feelings about the former al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, Muslims tended to show even stronger support. In Egypt, 44% held positive feelings, 25% held mixed feelings, and 17% held negative feelings. These numbers were 14%, 21%, and 26% respectively in Indonesia; 25%, 26%, and 15% for Pakistan; 27%, 26%, and 21% for Morocco; 56%, 22%, and 20% for the Palestinian Territories; 27%, 27%, and 20% for Jordan; 9%, 9%, and 68% for Turkey; and 4%, 6%, and 82% for Azerbaijan. Related to this trend is widespread denial of al-Qaeda's role in such attacks as those of September 11 in the United States. Majorities in Egypt, Indonesia, Pakistan, Morocco, the Palestinian Territories, Turkey, and Jordan did not believe that al-Qaeda was behind the attacks, naming the United States government or Israel as more likely culprits.

I've read some things. Never actually have been there, no. Buts its also common knowledge that anti-western sentiment runs rampant through that part of the world, especially in the last 4-5 years.

I would see it in the same way I see the Christians in the U.S. that are pro-war, pro-death penalty, against caring for the poor, etc. Being a part of a religion has become divorced from the actual ideology of that religion. You can be a Christian that breaks a lot of rules in the modern world just like you can be a Jew who shaves or a Muslim who doesn't wear a headscarf. Modernity has this possible. Islam itself is a pretty peaceful religion but that doesn't mean follows of Islam actually practice that teaching.

This is the stuff that makes me discredit religious belief as evidence for moral fiber. Modern religion is not tied to its teaching, only associated.
