Muslims don't like ISIS

Alternet - According to a recent poll by Pew Research Center, disdain for ISIS is high among citizens of 11 countries with large Muslim populations, including Jordan, Indonesia, Nigeria and Turkey. In Lebanon, hatred of ISIS is at 100 percent.

Anti-ISIS sentiment also runs high among Israeli Arabs and residents of the Palestinian territories.

In no country surveyed did more than 15% of the population show favorable attitudes toward Islamic State. And in those countries with mixed religious and ethnic populations, negative views of ISIS cut across these lines.

But the stumblebum American media will still think Islamic State is popular with Muslims, because it fits hoary tropes.
