Q10. For each of the following countries, tell me if in your opinion, it presents or not a threat to peace in the world?
Answers: yes
Israel 59%
Iran 53%
North Korea 53%
United States 53%
Iraq 52%
Afghanistan 50%
Pakistan 48%
Syria 37%
Libya 36%
Saudi Arabia 36%
China 30%
India 22%
Russia 21%
Somalia 16%
EU 8%

The one socio-demographic characteristic that stands out is education – the more highly
educated respondents (66%) are more likely to perceive Israel as a threat to world peace
than those who ceased their studies at an earlier age (“16-20”: 59% and “15 and
younger”: 50%).
