Israel is one of the most negatively viewed countries in the world, an annual BBC global survey found. Israel was the fourth most negatively viewed country, ranking just ahead of Pakistan, North Korea and Iran, according to the poll released Monday. In answer to the question "Please tell me if you think each of the following countries is having a mainly positive or mainly negative influence in the world," 21 percent of people interviewed for the survey viewed Israel mostly positive, with 49 percent mostly negative. The rest were neutral or undecided. Results from Israelis polled were excluded.
