In yesterday’s communique to subscribers (didn’t get it? sign up above!) we made reference to the latest poll of European opinion on Jews and Israel. According to the Independent, the Italian newspaper poll also included some basic questions on the Middle East:
The people polled were asked four questions about the Middle East conflict. Nearly one-third proved clueless. Only 6.2 per cent gave correct answers.
So plain ignorance contributes to the problem – no surprise there. We’d be interested to know what exactly those Middle East questions were, though. Anybody out there know? If so, please respond in comments below.
