Description/Annotation

Inside Islam: What a Billion Muslims Really Think, is a 55 minute long documentary film that explores the opinions of Muslims around the globe as revealed in the world’s first major opinion poll, conducted by the Gallup organization. Conducting the poll after 9/11, Gallup researchers asked the questions on every American’s mind: Why is there so much anti-Americanism in the Muslim world? Who are the extremists and how do Muslims feel about them? What do Muslims like and dislike about the West? What do Muslim women really want? Crucial policy decisions hang on these questions. They continue to generate passionate disagreements in the public square. Yet for all the heat and controversy, the actual views of the world’s Muslims have been conspicuously missing from this debate, so this film shines a lot of light, letting Muslims speak for themselves.
