Szazadveg: Hungarians sympathising with Israel, worried about Islamist terrorism

Respondents in a recent survey have expressed sympathy with Israel and "there is significant concern" about Islamist terrorism among the general population, pollster Szazadveg said on Monday.

The survey results put “Israel’s popularity index in the positive range” while 94 percent of those asked had heard about the Hamas organisation’s slaying more than 1,000 civilians on Israeli ground, it said.

According to Szazadveg “the Hungarian population is definitely critical about anti-Israeli public figures” with “the popularity index of Hungarian and EU politicians supporting Palestine and Hamas is strongly negative”.

Fully 87 percent of respondents said they were concerned that “Islamist terrorism could resurface in Europe in the near future”.
