Egyptians mixed over Islam's role in new government

Most Egyptians don’t want an incoming government that strays from the principles of Qur’an, reported a new poll conducted by the Pew Global Attitudes Project.

CBN News reported that two-thirds of respondents said they want society to strictly follow the Qur’an. Yet, only 31 percent said they tend to sympathise with the Islamic fundamentalists in their country. Troubling statistics for Egyptian Christians, indeed.

Take a few minutes to watch CBN News Senior International Correspondent Gary Lane analyze the recent poll further (Length 2:30).

The Pew results were based on face-to-face interviews with 1,000 Egyptians and is considered the first credible survey in the Middle East since the overthrow of President Hosni Mubarak.
