97 per cent of «Christians» in Lebanon unfavorable towards Jews

Almost all Muslims and claimed to be Christians in the Middle East hold a very negative view on the Jewish people.

Christians in Beirut parades their holy scriptures, forgets to love 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.

My comment:

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.

  1. It would be equally revealing to hear about Jewish sentiments towards Arabs.

    I think the universal reason for negative feelings toward Israel is their excessive use of force and their insensitivities towards their Palestinian neighbors who have been so savagely displaced from their homes.

    Indeed, there is something more universal than being a Christian or a Jew…it is doing what is morally right to another human being.

    1. Dear Linda.

      Shalom, and welcome to this site.

      I liked your reflective comment. Lets take a deeper look.

      The difference between Israel and its neighbors, is that Israel is not an Apartheid state. While all the Jews were told to leave nations like Lebanon, Syria and Jordan, Israel do have two Million Arab citizens, the majority of them Muslims.

      These Arab Muslims live inside the state of Israel with full citizen rights, secure jobs and enjoy the highest capita income in the Middle East, freedom and democracy, electing their own Muslim politicians to the Knesset.

      How is that possible?

      Because unlike the Racist Arab Muslim leaders, the first Prime Minister of Israel David Ben-Gurion in 1948 requested the Muslims not to leave the Jewish state, as demanded by their Arab brethren.

      Jewish sentiments towards Arabs was surely unique.

      The Arab Muslims who chose to flee Israel, have been indulged in nine wars against the Jewish state. Now, they want to return. Return to what?

      After two bloody Intifadas, and endless suicide attacks inside Israel, the Jewish attitude towards Muslims has surely taken a blow. Can we blame them?

      I love Lebanon. Up to 1974, it was the Paris of the Middle East. There was peace in these days between Israel and Lebanon.

      The PLO destroyed Lebanon. Based on an Islamic agenda, Lebanon became a hub for terrorists. As long as Syria supports terrorism, Lebanon runs the risk of being used as a proxy terror base against Israel. The Jewish people has never wanted to occupy the land of their brothers in the north.

      If the Lebanese people had got rid of this evil, Lebanon would again become a pearl.

  2. Dear Linda,

    It was during the 6 day war when Israel was attacked on multiple fronts. The Israelis won the war and the land they aquired during the war became part of Israel.

    This has been the rule of war practically since time began. It was when the Lebonese, Egyptian, and Jordanian citizens in those captured areas were denied the ability to move back into their home countries, because THEIR countries would not let them, that they became “a people without a country.”

    Israel offered them citizenship in Israel. Israel did not displace them, terrorize them, or demand they become Jewish. Israel offered them full rights as citizens!

    The people who now call themselves Palistinians are actually Syrian, Egyptian, and Jordan citizens cast out by THEIR OWN countries. While I feel for these people who have been made refugees by their own country, that does not make them “a Palestinian People.” It only makes them refugees.

    There has never in the history of history been a Palestinian people. These people adopted this name. It is NOT Israels fault that those home countries would not let them move back in. They are victims of war.

    Unfortunately, for them, them they now live in Israel and need to just deal with their abandonment by their home countries and STOP blaming Israel.

      Shalom, and welcome to this site.

      What you are promoting, is not a political view. This is historical facts. The Muslim World have never accepted their mistakes, and their lost battles. They continue to live in self denial. The Arab Palestinians, or whatever you want to call them do not want peace. They have joined a Radical Islamic agenda of taking “back” a land that was never theirs, in the name of Allah.

  3. I’m a lebanese christian, and yes muslims in the region are making lots of trouble, actually it’s the muslims that caused the civil war taht destroyed lebanon… it all began when the PLO started making road blocks.. killing christians immidiatly once caught or taking them to refugees, and attempted to kill the christian phalangist leader which started the war between phalangist party and PLO, then the lebanese muslims insted of supporting there lebanese, supported muslims just because they are muslims and later syria sided with PLO and muslims, therefor our only hope was israel, we had to call israel for support, beacause evry one was joining the war with their muslim brothers, that’s why christians do support israel over muslims, muslims in lebanon always lie about living in peace with christians but that’s not true they hate us and discriminate us in muslim regions they don’t even let christians into hospitals, we don’t, it’s a part of their jihad of killing the infedels wich means us, even the kuran has some 102 verses saying that.. and hezbollah is attempting to make lebanon a muslim country.. israel has the right to live in peace.. it’s just muslim jihad that talks about defending muslim regions, what do christians have to do with that! we don’t even consider ourself arabs, we only speek arabic that’s all..
