Popularity of extremist groups, such as Daesh, Muslim Brotherhood to decline: Arab News poll

News Now Chicago reports that an Arab News poll shows that the popularity of extremist groups such as Daesh, and religious political parties, like the Muslim Brotherhood, will decline over the next 10 years.

Of the poll’s 3,079 respondents, surveyed in partnership with YouGov, 59 percent of people believed their home countries would see less of the Muslim Brotherhood in the next 10 years. With regards to Hezbollah 63 percent shared this belief, while 75 percent expected less Al Qaeda, and 57 percent expected to see less of Hamas.

The poll also found that the deaths of extremist leaders such as Osama bin Laden and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi did nothing to foment sympathy for their respective groups.

The article’s key message is that Arabs have had enough of extremism and political-Islamic groups.
