Eurobarometer poll

According to the spanish newspaper El Pais the new Eurobarometer poll (based on interviews with 500 people in each EU country) European citizens picked Israel as biggest threat to Peace in the world (after Israel: North Korea, Iran and Afghanistan). The USA was voted together with Northkorea, Afghanistan, Iran followed by Iraq and Pakistan as the country who is responsible for instability in the world.

Next monday the complete poll will be avail. for public.

I read about that, but you know what they say about polls... I guess I will have to see more about this before I can form an opinion on it. I wonder how anybody can think the country (not the situation in) Afghanistan can be a threat to worldpeace at this moment. The same with Iraq.

I love newpapers taking polls
as if they want to check whether we're indeed swallowing the opinion they're trying to force upon us

It's no newspaper poll, it's a official poll by the EU itself. just "prepublished" by the "El Pais".
BBC published also an article about that poll:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/3237277.stm

A THREAT TO PEACE?:
Israel 59%
Iran, North Korea, US 53%
Iraq 52%
Afghanistan 50%
Pakistan 48%

I guess we should not be surprised that Europeans consider Israel to be the largest threat to worldpeace.
