90% of Arab/Muslim Nations surveyed view Jews "unfavorably."

The Pew Research Center, "an independent, non-partisan public opinion research organization that studies attitudes toward politics, the press and public policy issues," has released polling numbers conducted in Muslim/Arab countries and the numbers, while not surprising considering their "educational programming" (see here) and textbooks that they teach children with (see here), that they view the Jews "unfavorably." The numbers speak for themselves (click here for full article):

"In the predominantly Muslim nations surveyed, views of Jews were overwhelmingly unfavorable. Nearly all in Jordan (97 percent), the Palestinian territories (97%) and Egypt (95%) held an unfavorable view. Similarly, 98% of Lebanese expressed an unfavorable opinion of Jews, including 98% among both Sunni and Shi’ite Muslims, as well as 97% of Lebanese Christians.

By contrast, only 35% of Israeli Arabs expressed a negative opinion of Jews, while 56% voiced a favorable opinion.

The survey was conducted between May 18 to June 16, 2009.

The sample size of each of the countries surveyed was over 1,000 people and the margin of error was 3%. Results for the surveys in these nations are based on face-to-face interviews conducted under the direction of Princeton Survey Research Associates International. All surveys are based on national samples, except in Pakistan where the sample was disproportionately urban."

While I am a proponent of real & lasting peace, the numbers here clearly show us a picture of the Middle East where Israel continues to be ready for negotiations (see here and here) and the Arab/Muslim countries in the region show that only through killing innocent people, more so Jews, Israelis and Americans (see here), they could continue this process of radicalization and leading their citizens to thoughts and beliefs in racism, bigotry, and Antisemitism.
