There was a poll on one of polish publicist portals about attitude towards other nations. Results of poll shocked me, I must say. I'd like to make simmilar poll here and eventually compare results.

Question is: how would You describe Your attitude towards other nations ? In one word- positive, neutral or negative.

List of nations:

Americans
British
Arabs
Austrians
Belgians
Belarussians
Bulgarians
Chineese
Czechs
Danes
Estonians
Finns
Frenchies
Greeks
Spanish
Dutch
Irish
Japaneese
Lithuanians
Latvians
Germans
Gypsies
Russians
Romanians
Poles
Serbians
Slovakians
Slovenians
Swedish
Turks
Ukrainians
Hungarians
Vietnameese
Italians
Jews

Pleae, describe Your attitude for every nation in one word- positive, neutral or negative. I'd like to compare opinions here with opinions in other place.

Jews and Arabs are 'nations'? Actually, none of those are nations. Do you want our opinions on ethnoreligious groups, nationalities, or countries?

It's not too good, I admit. I tend to distrust foreigners, especially Eastern Europeans. Not, that I’m that fond of Western Europeans either, if they’re not British. I like Americans, Australians, Kiwis and the odd Canadian; Israel is good and the Arabs are bad. Now Asians, I kinda like them, as long as they're not Muslim.

I'm not trying to be provocative, it's just my mind set.

I differentiate between nations and their governments. I pretty much dislike Sudan and China's gvts. I respect and admire the Nordic nations, Switzerland, Australia and France.

As to culture, I enjoy Americana, as I have been bombarded with it all my life and come to enjoy its humor, music, food, sports and movies (although intelectually, I veer toward the European countries and value traditional cultures, especially India's).
