Poll's starkest findings are differences between Muslims and Christians over the other :: WaPo

(Welcome Slate readers: the today's blog link prompted me to come up with some thoughts of mine own here.)

Quoting WaPo:

One of the starkest findings was the divide in views on religions. Most of those surveyed in nine Western countries, including the United States, Britain, Canada, France and Russia, say they have favorable views of Muslims. But Muslims surveyed have mixed views of Christians, and anti-Jewish sentiment is "endemic," the survey reported. Views in the two Asian countries -- China and India -- were less stark, although roughly half of the Chinese surveyed view Muslims and Christians unfavorably.
