Pakistani view of U.S. reaches new low

By Jamie Crawford

With most of the official relationship between the United States and Pakistan currently in tatters, a new poll shows Pakistani public opinion toward the U.S. in an equally distressing state.

As much as 74% of Pakistanis consider the United States to be an enemy, according to the survey conducted by the Pew Research Center's Global Attitude Project. The figure is up from 69% a year ago, and 64% three years ago, according to the organization.

The survey comes at a time when the United States is working with the Pakistani government to negotiate the reopening of overland supply routes into Afghanistan after a NATO airstrike last November mistakenly killed 24 members of the Pakistani military.

U.S. President Barack Obama fared no better in Pakistani public opinion, according to Pew. Of the 15 countries surveyed in both 2008 and 2012 in the same survey, Pakistan was the only country where Obama rated no better than former President George W. Bush did during his final year in office.

Coming roughly a year after the raid that killed Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan, some 7% said they had a positive view of Obama, the same figure Bush received in the 2008 survey.

When it came to Pakistanis' general view of the relationship between Washington and Islamabad, 13% of those surveyed said relations between the two countries had improved in recent years, down 3 percentage points from the same time last year.

Similarly, only 45% of those surveyed said it is important for Pakistan to improve its relationship with the United States, down 15 percentage points from 2011.

U.S. financial assistance to Pakistan also is not too popular with the Pakistani public, despite the fact the Pakistani government is one of the largest recipients of U.S. economic and military aid. Roughly four in 10 of those surveyed said such aid has a negative impact on their country, while only one in 10 viewed such aid as positive.

The controversial American drone program inside Pakistan rated poorly as well, with only 17% of those surveyed backing such strikes against leaders of extremist groups, even if the strikes are conducted in conjunction with the Pakistani government.

The survey also found fewer Pakistanis want intelligence and logistical support from the United States, and fewer Pakistanis said they would be willing to work with the United States on efforts to combat extremist groups operating inside Pakistan.

The face-to-face interviews for the survey were conducted with 1,206 respondents in Pakistan between March 28 and April 13 of this year, the Global Attitude Project said. Approximately 82% of the Pakistani population resides in the areas covered by the sample.

Areas within the Federally Administered Tribal Areas, Gilgit-Baltistan, Azad Jammu and Kashmir were excluded from the survey for security reasons and instability, as were certain areas of Balochistan province and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

This makes the inbox a place that holds a mix of processed and unprocessed mgssaees. It is much easier for a message to get lost under this pile and not be handled until it's too late.

    When our people were uneducated our religious leaders told them what the Bible said. We were lead by the nose. We grew and learned and became to understand the written word and we claimed the true meaning of the Bible without others distorting it. Now the east has a responcibility to grow, learn what the Koran says and dtermine for themselves what the book says and not continue to be lead like we were and progress in peace. As long as the educated Muslims allow their book to be used as a weapon we will respond. It is up to the educated Muslims to temper the ones that want to distort their beliefs for there own gain. I am in Afghanistan and I understand how the uneducated are being lead/influenced by those that can read. It is about time Arabs in this area of the world step in and stop the corrupted leaders and bring the peace we have known in our country and will again.

    Ever since the middle 30s I knew Pakis and Indias were bleeding the worldfor financial assistance... ostensible for improving teh living standard of the population... the money went to the rich classes... the poor still squatted in teh Ganges....
    It´s that we need Pakistan for our supplies by land to Afghan Land... So as soon as we can vacate our existance in Afghanistan – and leave Al Queda and Taliban to destroy themselves – we could stop feeding them... If Russia and China need to support them... that´s their bizz...
    What bizz do we have with/from them ?? The pnly bizz we have with them is Jewish bizz... so..??!
    Oh.. them American Pakistani are not from the poor population...

    Unfortunately all participants are intolerant, non standing the comments made by others. Prophets, be it Jesus, Mosas, or Mohammad Sal Allah Ho Alaiwaalayhe Wassulum ought to be respected and being muslim its part of our faith to respect them.
    The article is pretty simple, Pakistanis do not want to have a help from US and I am sure people of US would want the same money to be spent of them so there should be a very straight forward decision. As for terrorists are concerned, Pakistan is the MOST SUFFERED nation since 9-11, there are more people died in Pakistan then any other country so let them set things right or be self destruct. US may go back and set their internal securities strong enough not to let any terrorist come in US.

    It is a well-known fact that in Asia, Pakistani businessmen are much more reliable than Indians, esp. those from Mumbai. In the mid-east, esp. in Dubai, you have lots of Indians who descended there since the oil boom, and they have a bad reputation of always trying to get out of contracts and disappear back into India where you cannot find them, or if found, there's nothing you can do because of the corruption there. There have been zillions of horror stories about them "buying and not paying", It's well known you can easily get a fake L/C out of India, and even genuine bank L/C's are not necessarily what you think is written. That's why one must deal with them through a non-Indian bank.

    It is generally accepted in Asian business community that Pakistani businessmen are much more trustworthy than Indians, especially those from Mumbai. In the Midest, long since the oil boom days when there was a huge influx of Indians, you hear lots of horror stories about Indians typically "buying, not paying" and disappear back into India where noone can find them, and if found, nothing happens because of corruption there.

    Pakistan is a moderate Muslim country, and had been an US ally since it's independence, including its position on Israel. Even though it is nuclear, it is not a threat to Israel at all, only as a deterrence to India. Relations only started to deteriorate since the last 6 or 7 years. It is no coincidence that India has been quietly destabilzing Pakistan and fanning Pakistan-US discontent, and their agents have been found in Afg-Pak border for exactly that purpose. These are widely known within Pakistan, but not reported much outside. It is about time some media report should dig into this.

        Dear M.A Khan SahibI agree with you that the real issue is poverty, but does the stuooiln lie in English as a medium of instruction? I do agree that every one needs to learn English to compete and live a successful life in today's world. But, as a student of Education I believe that current policy of the government using English as a medium of instruction will lead to further deprive and margenlize the poor and rural people as they do not have enough resources and infrastructure to provide an input needed for thier children to decelop skill and competence in a foreign language. This will result in a competetive disadvantage for them rather beniffiting them.

      Why focus on differences? Don't be so divisive. Instead, focus on similarities. Arabs are Muslims. And 74% of Pakistani Muslims want to harm Americans and innocent people around the world using their Islamic terrorism. Yes, 74% of Pakistanis who live off billions in US AID hate Americans. Muslims hate Americans. Muslims hate everyone else too. Have a happy 4th of July.

    Why is this so?

    As a leading Pakistani Muslim journalist himself has said (ref: Irfan Hussain in his book – Fatal-Faultlines-Pakistan, Islam and The est) no amount of aid can wean the Pakistanis and worldwide Muslims away from their hatredness of the west, which he says has existed for over a 1000 years.

    So, the one & only way for America & the west is ti ignore these people at best, leave their lands, stop aiding them & focus on the needs of our own people who are suffering due to the downturn.

    But America & the west will never be out of danger as long as the Pakistani Jihadic machine exists. To ensure that American needs to take this war into Pakistan, crush NOT only the Haqqanis but also other terrorists conspiring against us, divide that country, and seize their self declared Islamic bomb.

    Parallely we also need to limit the Pakistani Diaspora in the west given that per the FBI/CIA/MI-6’s own analysis the Pakistani Diaspora remain the greatest danger to the west. This belief is doubly reinforced by the warning from Pakistan’s Ambassador the UK who warned of terror unleashed on the streets of London by the over 1 million Pakistani immigrants..............

    And constant reminder by our own Islamic apologists like CNN’s Mr. Fareed Zakaria who ASTOUNDINGLY declared that “The Danger comes from us (the US) and NOT them (Al-Qaeda & Muslim radicals). (Ref: Reflections on 9/11 and its Aftermath” CNN-GPS Sept 9th.). It’s suicidal for America’s security to induct him into the US govt., in any role, let alone the role of the “US Security of State” as the Obama administration seems to be pondering.

    Short of thse steps the US & the free world will never be safe, and the world will never be free of Islamic terror.

In a respectful answer, how would YOU solve the problem of terrorists causing problems for MUSLIMS and non Muslims? Do you think Pakistan and US should allow them to hide in the mountains and grow their terror? Its their own fault when countries have to go after them for attacking innocent people intentionally.Look at the Middle east. Dont blame the Jews. the problem is that some Muslims want to instill THEIR will on others. They blame their dictators, but they have dictator groups(who pretend to be for the people so they can manipulate them) who also control the peoeple and use the name of religion to do it.

      American terrorists were not in Russia bloaing up buildings. If they were, Americans would go after them themselves, Russia wouldnt need to. America doesnt allow terrorists to hide in their country and attack other countries(Muslim or non Muslims)Radical Islam has an agenda which is also hurting the billions of good Muslims out there. radical islam and their hatred for non Muslims is causing good Muslims to question Islam and leave the faith in their hearts. Those who practice the brand of Islam which kills someone for leaving Islam is not a true believer in a kind and loving God but a follower of Satan.

        something about Chuck that I was absolutely not at all tteeahenrd or nervous about letting him into my condo. Actually, that says something about YOU. He was a STRANGER that you met on the internet and had a drink with, ONCE .and you let him into your condo?! Not trying to judge = just trying to show you how overly trusting you are. You are putting yourself in unsafe positions and you dont realize it. Read about boundaries and please be more careful! (No, this is not your mother. Just another former online-dater who is worrying about you

      WHY are they in their land? Why dont Muslims weed the terrorists out then other countries wont have to interfere. Terrorist Muslims are causing Muslims problems. if Muslims remove terrorists, there will be no drones or armies.Chinese are working the rresources in Muslim lands. Beware.

    DEMISE OF INDIA: The aftermath of Afghanistan invasion
    The American invasion of Afghanistan brought to the forefront the irrelevance of India as a nation. With a population of over 1.2 billion people there was no value that this nation could bring to the table. Their soldiers (ragtag) 1.2million continue hiding in the trenches scared from Talibans. A few teenage Talibans invaded the country and held it hostage for days on end showing how useless India is. It was embarrasing for the world to observe this humiliation of a nation that was being touted as a regional power. The Talibans brought them down in a few days with some BB guns. It is all over for India. Its demise is in process and should be completed with Afghanistan withdrawal.

      @krm – Clearly, you are boasting about Pakistan sponsored acts of terrorism. You are saying that Pakistani Taliban terrorized and killed innocent people in India. But why is that humiliation of non-terrorist people? The only things that the world saw being humiliated were your terrorist prophet Mohammed and your belief in Islam. You are clearly proud of being a terrorist. That's your prerogative since you are a muslim, nobody envies you for that.

        Sorry to say, people are leaving Islam in their hearts, they just cant tell it out loudly because they fear for their lives or family retribution. They see the radicalism it has brought to Muslims and non Muslims alike. This isnt morality, this is hatred and sin.

Another radical islamist thought? There is not a war against Islam but the radical Islamists are doing their best to cause problems arent they? Taliban are ruthless Godless people. God is kind, tolerant. he would never encourage the kinds of actions Talibans do

        It's a little counter productive to make an attempt at sounding smart and then posting some of the most unbelievably stupid and illogical arguments in each and every single one of your replies. If I wasn't so certain that your intelligence level is to blame, you might be confused for a troll. Let me guess what your reply to me will be... Some uncreative and out of date insult due to your lack of ability to counter my assertion.
        Everyone who held a conversation with Ameritalib should be ashamed of themselves. It's not nice to exploit the retardeds for amusement. It's just too easy and sad. I'm even hanging my own head in shame for posting a reply to him.

        You know, thats not true for a lot of America, and Pakistani American are in US as well. Many Pakistani in Pakistan are facing problems, especially with husbands abusing the women or hurting young girls. Everyone has issues, that doesnt mean all of US or all of pakistan is this way or that. If you are Pakistani and dont like it in US then leave. Some of we Muslims in fact love the US, we dont have to face the same oppression we do in many Muslim countries, or watch our Christian friends be harmed. Americans dont hate Pakistani people, but they feel Pakistan has supported terror by allowing it to exist there and then be transported to the rest of the world. Thats all.

    Of course they are mad at us. We have exposed them for the snakes that they are. I had to laugh when they implied they don't need us and would take their business to China. They called China their best friend as if China wasn't aware of their terrorist ties. China has it's own problems with snakes in own territory and they know where these snakes are coming from.

      Can you truly blame them, Jim? Look at what we did to both Afghanistan and Iraq. We invaded both countries and left Iraq with a pseudo-democracy as we're striving to do in Afghanistan right now. And don't forget that we're currently slaughtering thousands of other Muslims with those ungodly drones of ours! Need I say more?

        @Quigley - Which rock were you hiding under on 9/11? Muzzies planned the 9/11 attack from Pakistan and Afghanistan just because the hate the American infidels. Drones are a necessity to prevent them from terrorizing us. Look at what Muzzies do to their own women - they mutilate their genitals, and then they either throw acid on their faces or cut off their nose and ears. When they can do that to their own women, just imagine what they want to do to us infidels. Drones are a perfect tool to deal with these thankless Muzzies. Pseudo or real - democracy must be implemented in Muzzilands or else they will have theocracy.

      @ Jim: we created taliban with the help of pakistan to defeat russia. Now we are trying to kill the same people but those paying the price are ordinary civilians who never liked taliban to begin with. Anyways female genetile mutilation is not practiced there. That's a barbaric african culture.. Not related to any religion. You must be proud of yourself to just talk all the nonsense you read online.

        @Pickaso – we never created Taliban, they were creation of Paki Army/ISI with Saudi money to bring Sunni Wahhabi influence in the region; remember majority of Pakis are Sunni muslims. We created a group called Mujaheddin, now Northern Alliance, to fight USSR.
