Al Jazeera Poll: Is ISIS Beneficial To Region? Respondents Overwhelmingly Say Yes, But There’s A Catch

An Al Jazeera poll asked if the Islamic State is beneficial to the region, and a shocking amount of respondents voted yes.

The poll, on the TV channel’s Arabic-language website, asked: “Do you consider the Islamic State’s advance in Iraq and Syria to benefit the region?” With over 50,000 votes cast, 81 percent answered “Yes” and 18 percent voted “No”.
