Most don't believe Osama Bin Laden represented Muslin world
Laden was killed early May by US commandos in a raid on his hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan, and his body was dumped at sea, reportedly in the North Arabian Sea. The killing of bin Laden is believed to be in revenge for al-Qaeda's attacks on New York and Washington on Sept. 11, 2001 that killed nearly 3,000 people. Following the attacks, al-Qaeda argued it was carried out on behalf of all Muslims worldwide, but a majority of the Turkish population is not of the opinion that the terrorist group and its slain leader represent Muslims. The MetroPOLL survey found that 78 percent of all respondents do not believe that bin Laden represented the Muslim world. Only 11 percent said the contrary, and another 11 percent declined to comment. According to 71.1 percent of respondents, the killing of bin Laden will boost acts of terrorism in the entire world.
