"Only Iran, North Korea, and Pakistan are viewed in a more negative light than Israel, according to a poll conducted in 28 countries and published Tuesday by the BBC.

The poll shows that just 19% of the 29,000 respondents questioned view Israel positively versus 50% who perceive the country in a negative light. Together with Israel at the bottom of the list are Iran (15% positive, 56% negative), Pakistan (16% positive, 51% negative), and North Korea (17% positive, 48% negative).

The poll also showed that world perceptions of the US are improving with 46% of respondents viewing the country favorably and 34% viewing the country negatively. Only two countries saw a decrease in the perception of the world's number one superpower Turkey and India."

2. Sigh...
Expect end-times fundamentalist Christians to use this as propaganda indicating that the whole world is turning against Israel.

3. Worse than North Korea
They need to soften up their image--like Walmart did with the pretty yellow flower logo.

5. all self inflicted except pakistan
Iran, N.Korea & Israel, all have governments that engaged in behavior that directly resulted in such world view of these countries.

Pakistan once had control of its territories, under Musharraf it lost control of its northern areas, becoming THE hot bed for extremism and the new Wild-Wild-East.
