50% Support Stoning for Adultery in 'Moderate' Muslim Country

Moderate Muslims, our allies. Reuters:

Eleven percent of the people in Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim country, believe suicide attacks against civilian targets are sometimes justifiable, a survey said on Thursday.

The survey also found that almost half the respondents back stoning as a punishment for adulterers while support for other extreme elements of Islamic sharia was also significant.

Hat tip: Joel.
