A recent poll suggests that more than one third of the people living in the Arab world consider Israel to be the main threat to their country.

The poll was conducted by the Qatari institute, Arab Center for Research and Political Studies, from July 15 to September 10, and its results were published on October 8.

A total of 16,173 adults living in 12 Arab countries, including Jordan, Algeria, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Iraq, Morocco, Yemen, Palestine, Lebanon, Egypt, and Mauritania were asked which country posed the greatest threat to their nation.

According to the poll, 35 percent said Israel was the greatest threat to their country and the region.

Some 14 percent viewed the United States as the main threat against their nation, while 12 percent said neighboring Arab countries were more dangerous.

Other countries such as Turkey, France, and Spain were the main concern of 10 percent of the respondents.

About 29 percent said they did not know which country posed the greatest threat to their country.

The poll proves the failure of the West’s plans to spread Iranophobia, and their efforts to make the Islamic Republic appear the greatest threat to Arab countries, as most respondents considered Israel and the United States as the greatest threats to regional security.
