You can take a look at the actual poll (what's been released so far) here. I found this particular bit interesting:
EU citizens would prefer that the UN peacekeeping forces (43%) or the UN in general (19%), guarantee Iraq?s security. Only 11% are in favour of UN multinational forces - under US command. Even more interviewees would choose a provisional government (8%) guaranteeing security rather than the US alone (6%) or the US, together with their allies (5%). France shows the highest approval (54%) for UN peacekeeping forces and, together with the Netherlands, Finns (3%) show little support for the US?s role in guaranteeing Iraq?s security.
EUOBSERVER / BRUSSELS - Over half of Europeans think that Israel now presents the biggest threat to world peace according to a controversial poll requested by the European Commission.
According to the same survey, Europeans believe the United States contributes the most to world instability along with Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq and North Korea.
The specially commissioned poll which asked citizens 15 questions on "the reconstruction of Iraq, the conflict in the Middle East and World peace", has caused controversy in Brussels.
The European Commission is coming under fire for publishing the results of a number of questions - relating to Iraqi reconstruction - while failing to publish the results which revealed the extent of mistrust of Israel and the United States in Europe.
A Commission spokesperson today (30 October) denied that the decision to withhold some of the results until next Monday was politically motivated, adding that some of the results not yet published are still "unstable".
He did, however, add that a decision was made to publish a preview of the questions pertaining to the reconstruction of Iraq, to coincide with the Iraqi donors conference in Madrid, which took place at the end of last week.
This admission has raised questions about whether the Commission sought to suppress the results which would have came at a particularly sensitive moment.
One pollster involved in the survey told the EUobserver that some questions being raised about the poll were unfounded.
"The questions were decided upon by both the polling organisations and the European Commission", the source said.
Israeli officials dismissed the results of the poll as propaganda.
According to Spanish daily El Pais, a massive 59 percent of Europeans said they believed that Israel is the biggest obstacle to world peace.
The poll, conducted by Taylor Nelson Sofres/ EOS Gallup Europe, was conducted between 8 and 16 of October.
-------------------- The above is an extract from my fictional novel, "The random postings of Edame".
In the beginning was the word. And man could not handle the word, and the hearing of the word, and he asked God to take away his ears so that he might live in peace without having to hear words which might upset his equinamity or corrupt the unblemished purity of his conscience.
And God, hearing this desperate plea from His creation, wrinkled His mighty brow for a moment and then leaned down toward man, beckoning that he should come close so as to hear all that was about to be revealed to him.
"Fuck you," He whispered, and frowned upon the pathetic supplicant before retreating to His heavens.
