The figures cited in this article are from seven countries:
Lebanon, Turkey, and Indonesia [in which the majority of Muslims reject the penalties of stoning, cutting off the hands of thieves, and whippings]….
[and] Egypt, Pakistan, Jordan, and Nigeria [in which the majority of Muslims are in favor of these penalties]. If you are saying that these four countries are representative of Muslims worldwide, this is incorrect.
In North America, there are 1,053,945 Muslims in Canada (about 3.2% of the total Canadian population--and Islam is the second-largest (Christianity is the first) religious segment of the Canadian populace.
In the United States, there are about 3.4 million Muslims in the American population (which is about 1.1% of the U.S. population). Were American Muslims asked these same questions about stoning, whipping, and cutting off the hands of thieves, the answers of those respondents to these same questions would be hovering at about 0% in the affirmative.
Muslims vary worldwide about as much as do Christians, and basing your conclusions on mostly Third World countries like Nigeria, Pakistan, Egypt, and (yes) Jordan [which is sad, given that their queen dowager, born: Lisa Halaby, was American born and raised before she converted to Islam in order to marry the then Jordanian king (who is now deceased)], has the effect of you asserting, falsely, that the world's poorest and least educated countries are representative of Islam as a whole in general, and in First World countries in particular.
