Inside Islam: What a Billion Muslims Really Think explores the expertly gathered opinions of Muslims around the globe as revealed in the world’s first major opinion poll, conducted by Gallup, the preeminent polling organization. The poll, a window into the hearts and minds of the world’s more than 1.3 billion Muslims in more than 35 predominantly Muslim countries, the US and Europe, provides a way to understand what ordinary Muslims think and why.
The film--focused on the Gallup findings regarding such issues as Gender, Prejudice, Terrorism and Democracy—deftly shows how the data challenges the popular notions that Muslims and the West are on a collision course. Like the research, the film highlights a shared relationship between Muslims and the West that is based on facts not fear.
When fear takes over, communication stops and suspicion builds. That is why Inside Islam is such an important film, and why the extensive surveys conducted by the Gallup organization are so worthwhile. -- --Dr. Madeline Albright, 64th Secretary of State of the United States
This film will improve understanding and raise awareness among Americans that our foreign policy toward parts of the Muslim world (particularly Saudi Arabia and Egypt) engenders ill will and ultimately threatens our security. -- --Director of East African Affairs, U.S. Agency for International Development
Inside Islam will help to improve relations between the US and the Muslim world. I was particularly surprised to learn of the 7% extremists and was surprised to see the number of Americans who claimed not to know anything about Islam and Muslims. -- --Senior Economist for Iraq Reconstruction
