  1. There is a religious poll on the website for Aljazeera’s version of Crossfire, called Itejah al-Muakis (Opposite Directions). The poll is for the upcoming program discussing Switzerland’s recent Minaret Referendum that was supported by 57.5% of Swiss voters.

    The question is: “Do you believe that fearing Muslims who live in the West is justified?”

    So far it’s 29% yes, 71% no out of 1729 respondents.
