Web poll: Europeans consider US, not Israel to be #1 threat to "global stability"

Remember when Israel was thought to be the number 1 threat to world peace? Not any more. Now a new threat has been found. It is not North Korea, it is not Mr Ahmadinejad in Iran or Mr. Assad in Syria. It is the USA. In every country in which the Financial Times/Harris Poll  was taken (supposedly), US was ranked #1 as a threat to global stability, except in the US. Of course, the pollsters had no real way of knowing the nationality of the respondents - just their current Internet address.

Monthly Opinions of Adults from Five European Countries and the United States

August 2007 - Below are the most recent data from the Financial Times/Harris Poll, a monthly poll of adults from six countries in Europe and the United States. The countries include France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Spain and the U.S.

This FT/Harris Poll was conducted online by Harris Interactive among a total of 6,398 adults (aged 16-64) within France, Germany, Great Britain, Spain, and the United States and adults (aged 18-64) in Italy between 1 and 13 August 2007. Figures for age, sex, education, region and Internet usage were weighted where necessary to bring them into line with their actual proportions in the population. Propensity score weighting was used to adjust for respondents' propensity to be online.

Q1660_1 "Which one, if any, of the following countries do you think is the greatest threat to global stability?"
