Just 3 percent of Arabs say they empathize with Jewish Holocaust victims, according to a new poll (PDF) released by the Brookings Institution’s Saban Center, in conjuction with Zogby.
The survey polled 3,976 people in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Saudi Arabia and UAE.
It asked respondents, “When you watch a movie or a program about the Jewish Holocaust, which of the following is closest to your feelings…”
The most popular response, from 59 percent, was “Resent it as I feel it brings sympathy toward Israel and the Jews at the expense of Palestinians and Arabs.”
Another 29 percent said they had “mixed feelings.
Rounding out the bottom, a mere three percent of Arabs say they “Empathize with the Jews who suffered under the Nazis.”
Jamie Kirchick has more on the rest of the poll, here.
