Islamic Tolerance

Survey results from Indonesia:

The new survey was carried out between 2001 and March 2006. 43.5% of respondents said they would be prepared to wage war on threatening non-Muslim groups, while 40% said they would employ violence against anyone seen to be blaspheming against Islam. 14.7% said they would be prepared to tear down Chrisian churches which did not have official permits.

[...] between 30% and 58% approved of hand amputations for thieves and the stoning to death of rapists as well as other aspects of Sharia law, and also opposed the election of non-Muslims for presidential office.
