This summer, the WISE team has been hard at work on a grassroots collaborative and multidisciplinary project, a
Community Guide, aimed at discrediting extremist groups like ISIS
showcasing the ideology of peace in Islam
. This Guide will break down the scriptural misuse of these groups and show the various factors surrounding their targeted recruitment tactics.
You are receiving this survey because
opinion is an essential component of this project. In order to make the Guide as useful and informative as possible, it is necessary for us to gauge 1) the aggregate views of Muslims in America on extremism and 2) perceptions about the impact groups like ISIS are having on American Muslims. Your responses are
not for attribution
and will remain
I know you share my concern about the collective toll that the growth of violent extremism is taking on American Muslims.
It is time for us to stand united against those who slander the name of Islam worldwide.
We hope you will find the time to let your unique voice be heard by
Monday, August 3.
If you know of other Muslims in America who might be interested in participating in this important project, please feel free to circulate this
We very much appreciate your support, and look forward to your receiving your responses.
