    Congratulations to Leonie Schultens on writing such a sensible article. Far too many journalists, like Uni, appear to be plain dumb when it comes to reading the results of a survey or appear to use them merely as a cheap source of a sensational headline. What are we to make of the fact that, while 77% of Germans view Israel as having a negative influence, as many as 74% view the USA in the same way. So are Germans questioning the USA's right to exist? And what journalist has pointed out that, in presenting its own report, the BBC averaged results from all the countries where the poll was conducted ? thus giving the same weight to populations of around a billion (China, India) as to those of about 3 million (Lebanon, Bahrain).
