Abstract

The present study ascertained the validity and reliability of the Attitude towards Islam measure, modified from Francis's short version (7-items) Scale of Attitude towards Christianity (Francis, 1978). 443 Arab Muslims from high schools and colleges in Israel with an age range of 17-38 years participated in the study. Factor analysis revealed two dimensions of the measure, labelled experiential and judgemental, in each of the samples. The findings also revealed high validity and reliability of the measure in the case of the whole scale and experiential dimension, and less so in the case of the judgemental dimension.
