A bigger surprise:

Reader comment on item: India, the Most Pro-Israel Country

Submitted by Peter Herz (United States), Apr 25, 2009 at 16:52

Perhaps the Indian contributors are right about non-Muslim Indians sharing a perception that they and Israel are both targets of Islamic jihad.

But I am surprised that pro-Israel sentiment in China runs 50%. For a long time, official China castigated Israel as a catspaw of Western colonialism, an attitude that continues long after normalization between Beijing and Israel. Further, official China has always taken a pro-Arab stance. I'd like to see a little more in-depth reporting on how half of China came to be pro-Israel despite the stance of a government that severely curtails the amount of and slant of international news reaching its people.
