We want their oil and their weather

Survey finds chasm between Muslims, Westerners. Not that anyone could have predicted that or anything...

"Muslim opinions about the West and its people have worsened over the past year and by overwhelming margins, Muslims blame Westerners for the strained relationship between the two sides."

The survey found that large percentages of the population of nearly every Muslim country saw Westerners as violent, immoral and greedy but that solid majorities of Indonesians, Jordanians and Nigerian Muslims had favorable views of Christians.

Muslims living in Western Europe were more likely to see Westerners as being generous and honest, but more than half those surveyed in four European countries saw them as selfish.

"We see them coming here occupying our countries, taking the oil. Muslim countries are rich in natural resources, enjoy the best weather. That is why Western governments want to control us and take over our wealth," Abeer Ali Muhammad, a 38-year-old fitness trainer in Egypt, was quoted as saying.

The survey found Western attitudes toward Muslims were more diverse. Some 83 percent of Spaniards and 78 percent of Germans associated Muslims with fanaticism, but only half of French respondents and 43 percent of Americans shared that view.
