In March 2004, the Pew Global Attitudes Project “found that anger against the United States is pervasive and that Osama bin Laden is viewed favourably by 65 per cent of the people in Pakistan, 55 per cent in Jordan and 45 per cent in Morocco. Even in Turkey where bin Laden is very unpopular, as many as 31 per cent say that suicide attacks against Americans and other Westerners in Iraq are justifiable.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
