28% in Global Poll Say Conflict Inevitable Between West & Islam

39% of Germans(?), 51% of Indonesians- a country that has a super-majority of Muslims- believe that violent conflict is inevitable.

A BBC Global service poll finds that more than one in four respondents believe that a conflict between the West and Muslim Countries is inevitable.
BBC reports:

In a survey of people in 27 countries, an average of 56% said they saw positive links between the cultures.

Yet 28% of respondents told questioners that violent conflict was inevitable.

Asked twice about the existing causes of friction, 52% said they were a result of political disputes and 58% said minority groups stoked tensions.

Only in one country, Nigeria, where Christian and Muslim groups often clash violently, did a majority of those polled (56%) cite religious and cultural differences between communities as the root cause of conflict.
