“The message in the film Inside Islam: What a Billion Muslims Really Think is that we should be guided by facts, not fear. That is a simple message with logic on its side, but the difficulty is that human nature and logic have a complicated relationship. The main difficulty has been our tendency as Americans to equate the different with the dangerous.”
— Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright
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.
