Russia is the most influential player in the Middle East. Poll in Middle Eastern countries

31
A survey conducted by the Washington-based Pew Research research center was devoted to the study of public opinion on regional policies among citizens of Tunisia, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel and Turkey, writes the publication Haaretz.com.




Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was recognized as the least popular leader in the region, even lagging behind Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

"While 64 percent of respondents across the region said that Russia currently has a much greater influence on the situation in the region than ten years ago, almost similar numbers, 63 and 62 percent, respectively, believe that the same can be said about the influence of Turkey and the United States ", - cites the article MixedNews.

More than half of the respondents (53%) believe that the influence of Iran in the region has grown over the last decade, while the same indicator for Israel was 46%, and for Saudi Arabia - 41%. According to the survey, Egypt was the only country that had lost some of its influence over the past 10 years, with 46% of respondents saying that it is less influential today, and only 19 percent believe that Egypt’s regional influence has increased.

The survey also investigated the attitude of residents to the leaders of other countries in the region. In other words, the respondents were not offered to rate the popularity of their own leaders.

“In Jordan, the king of Saudi Arabia Salman ibn Abdul-Aziz Al Saud was the undisputed favorite, as 86% of respondents expressed their approval with him. Two thirds of the respondents, about 66%, said the same about Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Netanyahu was recognized as the least popular among the leaders of the region by Jordan residents who participated in the survey, with only 1 percent saying they approve of it. Among all the countries of the Arab world, only Jordan and Egypt have a peace treaty with Israel, ”the material says.

In Turkey, the Saudi monarch was the only regional leader who was positively perceived by more than 20 percent of the respondents.

In Israel, the most popular leaders were Egyptian President Aabdel Fattah al-Sisi and King of Jordan Abdullah II, who were rated positively by 44 and 43 respectively by the percentage of respondents. Erdogan and King Salman received approval of 15 and 14, respectively, of the percent of Israeli respondents. And finally, less than 7 percent of the votes went to Bashar al-Assad and Hassan Rouhani.

It is noted that "in fact, the only country out of five respondents, where Assad and Rouhani enjoyed some popularity, was Lebanon: both received the highest rating - 45 percent positive feedback." Netanyahu was “the last to come,” and 0 percent of Lebanese respondents expressed their approval.

In Tunisia, Erdogan won the popularity contest - 59% of respondents said they approve of his actions. Netanyahu was the least popular here too - only 7% of Tunisians voted for him.

        At the moment, yes. And Russia will cooperate with you, and if you do not become very impudent, maybe even a little bit to be friends.

    And what exactly do they want to measure with these social farms? Maybe the effectiveness of intelligence or diplomatic services?
    Much more important is what regional and global leaders think and feel. For example, the fact that the Emir of Qatar races with the King of KSA and the Prime Minister of Israel fly to Sochi or Moscow. And they don't care who the Washington Research Center in Tunisia interviewed there.

    Israel has peace treaties only with Egypt and Jordan, and the leader’s popularity only in Israel itself ... so with the statement that Israel is the most influential country in the region, one can argue

      “Israel,” a young lady, like “Russia,” is capitalized. Respect the great and mighty Russian language. It is in Hebrew there are no uppercase and lowercase, all are the same, but in Russian there.

      PS
      Do not confuse popularity with influence.

                      Honor cannot be had. You can have a girl or have a summer residence, but not an honor. They don’t speak Russian like that. You can say: “I have the honor to leave” or “I have the honor to introduce myself”, but not “I have the honor”. Moreover, a Russian officer would never say such a thing to himself. Read the classics and love the Russian language. hi

            Isn't Hebrew a modern language like Ukrainian? I read about it a year ago, as in Israel, a program for inventing the "right" Hebrew words, corresponding to concepts that are not defined in it. There is a Hebrew language, which, it seems, already at the time of Christ, was not spoken (Aramaic was popular), but this is not Hebrew at all.

              You are not quite right. Hebrew today is the same Hebrew as in the time of Christ. Then by the way, "Italian" was very popular. Of course there are words that were not there in those days. For example, a computer. Of course it was possible not to bother and take this word from English as you did. But we have a different method. Hebrew Academy finds cognate words and comes up with a Hebrew word. So for example, "computer" has become "Machshev." Or for example, "radiation." You have it from "radio", and we have "kryna". Etc. hi
