A staggering 94% of Jordanians refuse to accept recognition of Israel and ties with the Occupation state, according to a new survey.

In the Doha-based Arab Centre for Research and Policy Studies’ ‘Arab Opinion Index 2022‘ last month, it was revealed that 94% of Jordanian respondents were against any recognition of and ties with Israel, along with 99% in Algeria and Mauritania, 96% in Libya, 95% in Palestine, 92% in Iraq and 90% in Tunisia.


In a seminar at Jordan University’s Center for Strategic Studies, the results of the survey were further outlined by the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies’ deputy Director, Mohammad Al Masri.

The Jordanian public’s refusal to recognize Israel, he said, is rooted in the fact that it is considered a colonial, racist and expansionist state, which Jordanians view as the greatest security threat to the region.

Masri also shed light on the fact that after Israel, 87% of Jordanians consider the United States as also the greatest threat to the region, with 78% even acknowledging Iran as posing a security threat to the Arab world.


A significant number of Jordanian respondents also expressed their belief that Russian and French policies towards the region and on Palestine in particular are negative.

The survey is the latest of many on the issue of public opinion in the Arab world which maintain that the vast majority of the population are in strong opposition to ties with Israel, and that they are far from aligned with some of their governments which recognize the apartheid state and have ties with it.

According to this survey, that includes Jordanians with regards to Amman’s relations with Tel Aviv, which were established at the Wadi Araba treaty of 1994 when a peace accord was signed between the two.
