Survey: Almost 50% of Americans Say No to Mosques Near Them

Almost half of Americans would feel uncomfortable with a mosque in their neighborhood, according to a recent poll conducted by Chapman University in California.

The third annual survey of American fears polled 1,511 Americans about what they feared most.

Some 41 percent of respondents said they feared a terrorist attack on the nation, the thing Americans feared the second most, after government corruption (60.6%). “Roughly one third” responded that “Muslims are more likely to be terrorists and that the Muslim immigration should be banned,” according to The Orange County Register.

    • Obama’s bosom buddy.

      • Liberal acceptance of Islam says a lot about the liberal mindset.

        Don’t trust a liberal with your daughter’s life.

        Yep, 2 peas in a prayer rug pod.

  • Liberal Progressive

    You can’t say that!

    If we say no to mosques or complain about the 5 broadcast adhan calls for prayer from the minarettes each day to be heard for a mile around we will be publicly labelled as racists. It’s better just to be quiet, sell your house cheap and move elsewhere.

    • Were just h8tr’s!

      • Achmed

        Just wait until the City of Toronto makes the CN Tower a minarette for a day to honor Eid-al-Adha and Islamic Heritage Month and the Adhan is announced from your tower to all of downtown Toronto!

        Let’s hope that will convince Qatar to buy the tower to do it daily forever!

    Those numbers don’t make sense. I don’t believe anything any more.

      I agree. I wager it is far more than 50%. Like in totalitarian and communist regimes a lot of people fear expressing their honest opinion knowing how to do so can cost them dearly.

    “Roughly one third” responded that “Muslims are more likely to be terrorists and that the Muslim immigration should be banned,”

    The other two thirds have signed up for the government’s mandatory euthanasia

    When are the peons going to get the memo ?

    It’s NOT what the citizen taxpayers want anymore….it’s what the elites want.

    So go ahead scratch away at your polls but it won’t make any difference to the outcome.

    There are three mosks in Tucson and they were trying to build one here in Sahuarita… there are no muzlims here, but we are only a few miles from the Mexican border and the I-19 smuggling corridor.

    • Alain

      Well, they have even built them in the Canadian artic, as though there were a large enough Muslim population to need them.

      • Slickfoot The Deplorable

        I’m more cynical, anything, or anyone that they can sneak across the border and into a mosk is pretty much safe from investors.

  • ontario john

    That’s Islamophobic! Up here in Canada we are going to have a mosque on every street corner. And women will have bags over their heads like proper feminists, Praise Allah!!

    • A Hamilton Guy

      Got one going up around the corner. I believe they have owned the property for a few years.They have basically been quiet. If they become more noticeable and start to stir up dirt; I just might have to buy a large dog with attitude.

  • Blacksmith

    The other 50 percent are either too stupid or too scared to fear the local pisslamist arsenal and recruiting station.

      Probably female.

  • BillyHW

    That it’s not 100% of Americans saying no mosques anywhere in America makes me weep.

  • Gary

    The Muslim that slaughtered 50 gays in the Pulse club had gone to the local mosque and heard one of the Imams speak about the benefits for killing gays for allah as sanctioned in the quran.

    We all know that the Police cover-up serious crimes by muslims to other muslims, it’s also the norm that they are vague when muslims go jihad in public .

    It’s not a “phobia” when they really want to kill you and their god approves it.
