• Al Jazeera Arabic Poll: 81% Of Respondents Support ISIS

    Respondents of a recent survey conducted by AlJazeera.net, the website for the Al Jazeera Arabic television channel, overwhelmingly support the Islamic State terrorist group.

    Eighty-one percent of respondents voted “YES” on whether they approved of ISIS’s conquests in the Iraq and Syrian region.

    “Do you support the organizing victories of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS),” the poll asks in Arabic. Thus far, it has generated over 38,000 responses, with only 19% of respondents voting “NO” to supporting ISIS.

    Al Jazeera claims that it has over 40 million viewers in the Arab world and its television audience is largely made up of Sunni Muslims living in the Arab world. Its biggest viewership numbers come from Egypt and Saudi Arabia, along with a large number of satellite television viewers in the United States, according to research estimates.

    AlJazeera.net is most popular in Saudi Arabia, the United States, Egypt, Morocco, and Bosnia and Herzegovina, according to the Alexa webpage analytic site.

    The news outfit has a track record swarming with allegations that the organization supports the narratives of terrorist groups. Following the September 11, 2001 attacks against the United States, the Al Jazeera headquarters in Doha proudly displayed silhouettes revering Osama bin Laden as a prophet-like figure.

    Fifty percent of respondents said they supported Osama bin Laden in an Al Jazeera survey taken on September 11, 2006.
