A Guardian/ICM poll released Tuesday found the following:
- Tens of thousands of Muslims have suffered from increased Islamophobia, with one in five saying they or a family member have faced abuse or hostility since the attacks.
- Nearly two-thirds of Muslims told pollsters that they had thought about their future in Britain after the attacks, with 63% saying they had considered whether they wanted to remain in the UK.
- Three in 10 are pessimistic about their children's future in Britain, while 56% said they were optimistic
- One in five polled said Muslim communities had integrated with society too much already, while 40% said more was needed and a third said the level was about right.
- Half of Muslims thought that they needed to do more to prevent extremists infiltrating their community.
Methodology: "ICM interviewed a random sample of 1,005 adults aged 18+ by telephone on July 15-17 2005. Interviews were conducted across the country and the results have been weighted to the profile of all adults. ICM is a member of the British Polling Council and abides by its rules."
