Poll: Arab Opinion Strongly Negative on Islamic State


iraq-isisA clear majority of Arabs support the goal of the U.S.-led coalition to “degrade and destroy” the Islamic State, says Khalil Jahshan, executive director of the Arab Center of Washington, which conducted a poll in seven Arab countries.

More than 8 in 10 said they have a negative view of IS, while nearly a quarter of Palestinians had a positive view of the group.

About 6 in 10 support the objectives of the U.S.-led war on IS. Nevertheless, 73% describe U.S. policies in the region as “negative.”
