The CAIR survey also asked respondents whether Muslims worship the same God as Christians and Jews, whether terrorist attacks in other countries harm American Muslims and if the war on terror has become a war on Islam. In addition, CAIR’s poll asked Muslim voters to rank public policy issues as they relate to the upcoming elections.
