Albany-- A recent study shows that since September 11th the political involvement of many American Muslims has almost doubled.

Not surprisingly many of them say the war in Iraq will be a big factor in how they vote this year but Muslim leaders say not all of them are against what's happening overseas.

"You can not go into a Muslim country if you don't have some support of Muslim people. America was called into that war, they did not go in by themselves per se," says Salahuddin Hanif, a Muslim leader in Albany.

The study conducted by US News Wire also showed that only about one-in-ten of the Muslims surveyed supported the president's Iraq policy.
