New polling has revealed 15 per cent of 1,000 British Muslims view Hamas as 'very positive'

A new poll has found that almost a third of British Muslims think it would be "desirable" to implement Sharia Law within the next two decades.

The survey, carried out by polling firm JL Partners, also found that 15 per cent of 1,000 British Muslims have a "very positive" view of Hamas, with 14 per cent saying they had a "quite positive" view of Hamas.

The findings from the Henry Jackson Society, a national security think tank, also found that almost 40 per cent of university-educated Muslims between the ages 18-24 believed Hamas had not committed atrocities on October 7.

It was also found in that the poll that 13 per cent of Muslims asked had a "very negative" view of Hamas, with 11 per cent having a "quite negative" view of the group.

When asked about how desirable it was for homosexuality to be outlawed, 17 per cent said it was "very desirable" and 10 per cent said it was "somewhat desirable". Meanwhile, 18 per cent said it was "very undesirable" and 10 per cent said it was "somewhat undesirable."

Founder of interfaith groups Tell Mama, Faith Matters and Muslims Against Anti-Semitism told MailOnline: "Hamas is an Islamist extremist and terrorist group and has been terrorising Gazans, Israelis and liberals within society for decades.

"The sense that Hamas did not conduct massacres and rapes in Israel is atrocious because it shows a closed-off mentality to anything emanating from Israel.'

"The findings confirm that a lot of work needs to be done to inform, challenge, and address old anti-Semitic tropes that are still circulating among some of my co-religionists."

Meanwhile, around 41 per cent of British Muslims said Jews have too much power in the media and 39 per cent when it came to Britain's financial system.

It also found that almost half (46 per cent) of British Muslims say Jews have too much power over UK government policy, compared to 16 per cent of the general public.

A Government spokesperson said: "We have recently set out a series of measures which will promote social cohesion and counter religious hatred.

"Our plan will tackle division in our communities and ensure that we are protecting our democratic freedoms across the country."

Gaza's health ministry reported at least 33,207 Palestinians have been killed and 75,933 others wounded in Israel's military offensive on Gaza since October 7.

It comes six months after the massacre which saw 1,200 civilians killed and a further 235 taken hostage from southern Israel.
