Dutch Research Professor Warns Half of Muslims In Favor of Sharia

A Dutch research professor, Ruud Koopmans, who directs the Research Unit Migration, Integration, Transnationalism at the Berlin Social Sciences Center, said his studies have shown that of the one billion or so around the world who claim to be Muslims, fully support Sharia-like principles.

Muslim womenHalf of the world’s Muslims believe women are properties to be controled and homosexuals are deserving of death.

“Half of them are attached to an arch-conservative Islam which places little worth on the rights of women, homosexuals and people of other faiths,” he said, the Express reported.

The Express also said:

“In an interview with a German news website he claimed that of these 500 million conservative Muslims, at least – and probably more – than 50 million are willing to sanction violence.

“The migration researcher stressed that not every one of them was ready to exert violence directly.

“But he added: ‘They support the radicals, they encourage them and provide them shelter or simply keep their mouths shut when they observe radicalisation.’”

Koopmans also said he believed the 50 million was an understatement because other studies estimate about eight percent of German Muslims alone have expressed favor for using violence against those deemed “infidels.”

The Express again:

“In his own country 11 per cent of Muslims agreed with the statement: ‘There are situations in which it is acceptable for me from the perspective of my religion, that I use violence.’

“In several Islamic countries, 14 per cent of local Muslims think suicide attacks against innocents are ‘sometimes’ or ‘often’ justified to defend Islam, said Koopmans, citing a study by the US based Pew Research Centre.

“‘I’m very conservative with my estimate of 50 million violent Muslims,’ added Prof Koopmans.

“The expert sees a ‘clear difference’ between anti-Islam baiting and justified criticism of Islam.”

What’s needed is a “zero tolerance” policy for those of the Islam faith who seek entry to the European Union to “spread their medieval beliefs,” he said, the Express reported.

“He stressed that the EU should be much more careful to let suspected Islamists have uncontrolled travel to and within Europe.

“He said refugees and migrants should be placed initially in transit zones, ‘as long as their identity is unclear.’”
