Eighty-six percent of British Muslims questioned for a new poll said they would inform police if they suspected a fellow Muslim was involved in a terror attack. The ICM poll for the News of the World Sunday newspaper, found 9 percent said they would not contact authorities with their suspicions. Poll results released late Saturday showed that among Muslim respondents aged 16-24, 15 percent said they would not inform police while 81 percent said they would. Overall, 56 percent said they did not believe a police warning that there are thousands of extremist British Muslims willing to carry out attacks on their country. Thirty-four percent said they believed the warning and 10 percent did not know. Eighty-six percent said Prime Minister Tony Blair's strong support for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan had helped provoke terror attacks like the blasts on London's transit system on July 7, 2005 that killed 52 subway and bus passengers and four British-bred suicide bombers. Seventy-two percent blamed the racist and Islamophobic behavior of non-Muslims for provoking attacks, the pollsters said. ICM Research interviewed 502 Muslims aged 16 and over by telephone between Sept. 8-20. The margin of error on as sample of this size is plus or minus 4 percent.
