94% of Jordanians refuse to recognize Israel

ALBAWABA – 94 percent of Jordanians refuse Amman’s recognition of Israel as made in the Wadi Araba treaty of 1994 when a peace accord was signed between the two countries.

The latest survey was unveiled by the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies. The deputy director of the center Mohammad Al Masri outlined the results Monday in a seminar at Jordan University’s Center for Strategic Studies.

He said the Jordan public refusal to recognize Israel is related to the fact it is considered a “colonial”, “racist and “expansionist” state. Al Masri added therefore Jordanians see Israel as the greatest security threat to the region.

His views are trending on the social media but the figures are revealing as well because they are part of a wider survey too gauge different opinions across the Arab world.

However, on the Jordan level, Al Masri said after Israel follows the United States for 87 percent of those polled believed US serves the greatest threat to the region. What is surprising is what followed next for 78 percent also felt Iran poses a security threat to the Arab world.

It is added as well, Jordanian respondents felt US, Russian, Iranian and French policies on Palestine were evaluated as “negative”.
