Forty-seven percent of British Muslims said they would consider becoming a suicide bomber if they were Palestinian, a new poll said. The poll for the Guardian newspaper also found that 13 percent of the 500 Muslims polled supported Al-Qaida attacks on counties such as the United States. A spokesman for the mainstream Islamic representative body, the Muslim Council of Britain, said the poll showed most Muslims strongly oppose terrorist attacks and condemned last week’s Madrid bombings, thought to be linked to the international Islamic terrorist network.
