Morning Poll: 53% Say Islam Threatens West

Issue: Poll: 53% say Islam poses threat to West: Compares with less than 1/3 after 9-11 terrorist attacks on U.S./London Telegraph

More Info: The alleged plot to blow up transatlantic airliners and last year's terrorist attacks on London have made more people fear Islam as a religion, not merely its extremist elements, a poll for The Daily Telegraph has found. A growing number of people fear that Great Britain faces "a Muslim problem" and more than half of the respondents to the YouGov survey said that Islam posed a threat to Western liberal democracy. That compares with less than a third after the September 11 terrorist attacks on America five years ago.

Question: Does Islam pose a threat to the West?
