Report Summary: Muslim Americans: Middle Class and Mostly Mainstream
The first-ever, nationwide, random sample survey of Muslim Americans finds them to be largely assimilated, happy with their lives, and moderate with respect to many of the issues that have divided Muslims and Westerners around the world.

Relatively few Muslim Americans believe the U.S.-led war on terror is a sincere effort to reduce terrorism, and many doubt that Arabs were responsible for the 9/11 attacks. Just 40% of Muslim Americans say groups of Arabs carried out those attacks.

An earlier Pew survey in the rest of the Muslim world found much higher levels of disbelief. In the U.S. survey, the more educated the Muslim respondents the less likely they were to believe Osama’s claim for 9/11, while the more religious the respondent the more likely not to believe in Arab involvement (or if they are Rosie O’Donnell fans).
