Almost all Muslims and claimed to be Christians in the Middle East hold a very negative view on the Jewish people.
This is the conclusion in The Pew Research Center’s Global Attitudes survey conducted last year. It paints a worrying picture of attitudes towards Jews in the Middle East.
In the predominantly Muslim nations surveyed, views of Jews were overwhelmingly unfavorable. Nearly all in Jordan (97 percent), the Palestinian territories (97 per cent) and Egypt (95 per cent) held an unfavorable view. Similarly, 98 per cent of Lebanese expressed an unfavorable opinion of Jews, including 98 per cent among both Sunni and Shi’ite Muslims, as well as 97 per cent of Lebanese Christians.
By contrast, only 35 per cent of Israeli Arabs expressed a negative opinion of Jews, while 56 per cent voiced a favorable opinion.
The survey was conducted between May 18 to June 16, 2009.

It is not so strange that Muslims in the Middle East hold a negative view on the Jewish people. They have been solidly defeated in all the Middle East wars, by a people they have outnumbered 20 to one. The Muslims even tell lies to their children, about great Arab victories over the Jews.
That an equal amount of Christians in Lebanon holds the Islamic views, are more troublesome. Because the man they claim are their Master is a Jew.
Do they hate Him too?
What about his brethren, his family in the flesh?
Are Christians suppose to stand with the Jewish people against the false religion of Islam, or are we supposed to side with such enemies of God of the Bible?
Since the new Testament says that Jesus will reign over the house of Jacob forever, «Christians» in Lebanon will face a problem on their day of judgment if they harm the House of Jacob.
