One in five Syrians say Islamic State is a good thing, poll says

“A recent survey of 1,365 Syrians from all 14 governorates of the country found some surprising  attitudes. Consider this: A fifth of those interviewed said the Islamic State — the brutal Islamist group known for its beheadings, that rules over large swaths of Syria and Iraq — is a positive influence on the country. And 82 percent said that they believe the Islamic State was created by the United States and its allies.”
