The greatest level of sympathy towards Israel can be found in India, according to international study on behalf of the Foreign Ministry, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Friday.
According to the study, which was unprecedented in scope and was undertaken by an international market research company, 58% of Indian respondents showed sympathy to the Jewish State. The United States came in second, with 56% of American respondents sympathizing with Israel.
The study was undertaken as part of the "Branding Israel" project and aimed at looking into Israel's international stature at what researchers characterized as the world's 13 most important countries, including the US, Canada, Britain, France, China, and Russia. A total of 5,215 people took part in the study.
Other countries that showed significant sympathy to Israel included Russia (52%) Mexico (52%) and China (50%). At the bottom of the list, the study ranked Britain (34%) France (27%) and Spain (23%) as the least sympathetic countries towards Israel.

The world is turning back to sociocultural and religious herding. The older mainstream religions of the world [Judaism, Catholicism (specifically), Christianity (generally), Taoism, Buddhism, etc.) need to remember that Islam is not just about social change but religious dominance. The Indian culture is a spiritual melting pot and welcoming of Jewish and Christian visitors to their country, but they have their own interests at heart as well by keeping the US and Israel close to their vest. With a subcontinent of over 1 billion people, they’d have a real mess on their hands if folks like the Taliban tried to stake down in the northern reaches.
Of Course because we have the same enemies.
Nothing for you, Pat.
Yes, they forgot Romania. And if the US regime is one of Israel’s strongest supporters, may G-d help them.
