Yup …. the results are in as reported by BBC News …

The persistent association of Israel with the world’s most negatively viewed countries will come as a disappointment to Israeli government and other hasbara officials who have invested millions of dollars in recent years to greenwash and pinkwash Israel as an enlightened, democratic and technological “Western” country.

Israel one of world’s most unpopular countries and it’s getting worse: BBC survey

 Israel is not only one of the world’s most negatively viewed countries, but its reputation is deteriorating, according to the BBC World Service’s latest global survey.

The US is now the only Western country that holds favorable views of Israel and in some European countries, including Germany, positive views of Israel are in the single digits.

The 2013 Country Ratings Poll, conducted by GlobeScan/PIPA for the BBC among 26,299 people around the world between December 2012 and April 2013 found that:

Iran is once again the most negatively viewed country, with negative ratings climbing four points to 59%. Most people also give negative ratings to Pakistan (56%, up five points), North Korea (55%, up three points) and Israel (52%, up one point).

The persistent association of Israel with the world’s most negatively viewed countries will come as a disappointment to Israeli government and other hasbara officials who have invested millions of dollars in recent years to greenwash and pinkwash Israel as an enlightened, democratic and technological “Western” country.

US is only western country with favorable views of Israel

And the news only gets worse. Here are some of the highlights from the BBC poll:

  • On average, in the 22 tracking countries surveyed both in 2012 and 2013, 52 per cent of respondents had negative views of Israel’s influence in the world, an increase of two points from last year.
  • Out of the 25 countries polled in 2013, 20 lean negative, three lean positive, and two are divided.
  • The United States is the only Western country surveyed holding favorable views of Israel, and the only country in the survey with a majority of positive ratings (51%, stable).
  • Views of Israel in Canada and in Australia remain entrenched in negative territory with respectively 57 and 69 per cent of unfavourable views.
  • In the EU countries surveyed, views of Israeli influence are all strongly negative and have either hardened further or remained stable.
  • The United Kingdom is the most unfavorable country towards Israel in the EU with 72 per cent of Britons holding negative ratings.
  • The UK is followed by Spain (70% negative) where views have deteriorated due to a loss of positive ratings, now at just 4 per cent (down from 12%).
  • Positive views have dropped eight points in Germany over the past year, down to 8 per cent in 2013 while negative inclinations have remained stable at 67 per cent.
  • In France, the picture is stable with 21 per cent giving positive views (vs 63% negative) France is the EU country with the highest proportion of favourable ratings.
  • Newly asked countries Poland and Greece have negative pluralities of 44 and 46 per cent respectively, while just 15 per cent lean positively towards Israel in both countries.

    What is incredible about this is if anyone does some research into who ultimately owns or controls the media, you will find it is virtually totally controlled by Zionists! However much they manipulate & deceive, thankfully most people stiil realize the truth!

    To the Zionists and to them that KNOWS this case on a higher level that I do.


    #this is a mindboggeling clear example on whats been hidden in this case and all the dissinfo that is been dripped out from it, and do notise, and ask anyone familiare with explosivs, the explosion tok plase at 14.39 kl. aprox from a 90 deg angle from the front of the buliding, and so this effect of the explosion is the FACT this is the SOLE CASE.
    The f… explosion goes the WRONG WAY:
    Liek the Boston bombing, the class is OUTSIDE, not INWARD; from an outsied detonation, it simple defies everything regarding physics.#

    This video,zionists is the cuase of the reasent killings of inocents in Norway by a Freemason, from the same lounge that several topp politicians, law, military, industry/finnace, and our own barking mad terrorits BreViking.
    Its the Muslim(Silamic rant that exposes them, the zionsits, the same rant that is His Manifest, pure humbug, and is zionist propaganda, the same propaganda that the so caled “british defence leags” are druling on their sites about Muslim Invasions and so on.
    The reason for this is simple, Freemasons are a FULLY Zionistical controlled organisation and since the silence is earshatering I post this video as a warning, because I will never forgett this treason comittet on the Norwegian people, and that is done with the full coop and complicety of the Khazarian/Zionist Norwegian goverment.
    The truth about Norway is some thing totaly different than what comon people “belive”, Norway is a sick sosciety, runn by an elite that is slowly draining our recourses as many other countrys are expiriencing.
    We practiacly GAVE Russians Hughe oil/gass controll to the Ruskies/Zionist controlled Goverment and corps.
    For Free and some billions in f…. know what, and this people in the Norwegian gov, have been contected thrue years about MY people in both lands, and NOBODY says ANYTHING; its complet silence.
    And its in all the partys, no exeptions.
    Thats why, our Voice is not Heard, we fight for our lives and the bare existence and all we gett is Silence, exactly the same as the Palestinians, all talk and all notions id for the ONE side, and NOBODY mentions in the Pals in any terms, they dont exist.

    My people have the same fate, thats why I know the Game, and their Tools and mind sett, I have expirienced it My self, and I am White.

    The reason for me to attac Russia, is the exact same, they are the main souce of the Zionist army, thrue Freemasons and likes, Jesuits and so on, all are crawling out of their caves as scavangers, to feast on the carvase of humaint, when the great war is in the ebbings.

    The war will come, is the sole acumulation of all actions so far, the have to take the rest by Froce, this is also the reason for this mixed signals on the Turkish uprising, with have my full hart and respect.
    They have taken a stand, and do you need Heros, lok at The Turks.

    Remeber Gandhi, he just walked down the goverment and those in charge.

    Wake up. Palestina.

    peace

    Nope the U.S. is not the only country in the Western world with favorable views. There’s Canada, Britain and Australia. But of course, like the U.S., they are ruled by bought and paid for political whores and media presstitutes.

    Their proverbial chickens have now ‘come home yo roost’.
    ‘israel’ has no one to blame but herself. She is the ugly pig that no lipstick can save.

    Good point Michael. Just imagine what Israel’s popularity rating would be if Zionist did not have complete control of the MSM.

    Israel is a mad dog and it needs to be killed, the sooner the better.

    A vessel of racism and apartheid cannot float indefinitely on a sea of lies and created confusion.

    So sad for the many who suffer, so sad for the many caught up in this, and so sad for those who refuse to see what their eyes and ears and hearts tell them to be true.
