The following post was submitted by reader John K. The views may not be the same one's I have. If you have a problem with what's in the post, take it up with him, not me.
First off let me say I hate Blogger with a passion. If Blogger were a human, I'd take a baseball bat to it's head. I've been trying to post since 10AM and this stupid piece of crap has been having trouble. And the real bad part is that Google, who owns Blogger, keeps saying that nothing's wrong. I even went and set up a blog with Livejournal, but I'm not too happy with it's layout. I'll play around with it some more and maybe I'll be able to get it to something I like and finally more away from Blogger. Anyway, back to the post.

It seems that public views of America in Muslim countries is changing. In a recent poll conducted Feb. 1-6 of this year, more people in Muslim countries favored our War On Terror than opposed it. Here are some of the findings of the poll:

~For the first time ever in a major Muslim nation, more people favor US-led efforts to fight terrorism than oppose them (40% to 36%). Importantly, those who oppose US efforts against terrorism have declined by half, from 72% in 2003 to just 36% today.

~For the first time ever in a Muslim nation since 9/11, support for Osama Bin Laden has dropped significantly (58% favorable to just 23%).

~65% of Indonesians now are more favorable to the United States because of the American response to the tsunami, with the highest percentage among people under 30.

~Indeed, 71% of the people who express confidence in Bin Laden are now more favorable to the United States because of American aid to tsunami victims.
