Educational level and dislike of Jews among Muslims

In the last post, a reader suggested I look at the relationship between education and disliking Jews among Muslims. Terrorists make it seem like it's educated Muslims who are most likely to be extremists.

The numbers below are the percentage of Muslims (from many countries) who say they would not want to have a Jewish neighbor. I also included percentages by sex and age.
Percent who do not want a Jewish neighbor (sample size = 9,220)

Educational level
Lower 39.7
Middle 32.4
Upper 29.6

Men 34.6
Women 35.8

15-29 36.4
30-49 34.5
50 plus 34.6

Educated Muslims are least likely to dislike Jews. Attitudes do not vary much across gender or age.

    Servicing your air conditioner regularly will preserve your energy charges down. The much better your air conditioning unit is running, the much less resources it will use, thus, saving you moeny on vitality bills. It is also wise to preserve your unit routinely instead of pay big repair charges when it finally breaks down. A service call is a lot cheaper than a replace the unit call.

  5. Arab countries are stifled under secular pro-western backward, divisive dictatorial authoritarian repressive western-supported regimes that want to keep arabs weak, divided and backward.
    Muslim scholars like Ghazali and Ibn Rushd contributed a lot during medieval Islam.
    During the inquisition time the science was on very poor level in Christian countries too. Separation of social life and religion boosted the science and education in Christian counries. Modern life means embracing science and technology but muslims can’t agree to adopt scientifically calculated lunar calendar. When the religion and social life are separated, it opens the way to free discussions which produce the better and faster way to embrace science and technology.
    Also in the islamic countries where restrictions for the religious life are not very strict, the population is highly educated. Bangladesh and Indonesia combined do not publish half as many research papers annually as Malaysia.
    Iran is the only sizable Muslim country that is independent of Western meddling in own affairs. Iran has 11 times the average world growth in scientific publications . Iran sent Kavoshgar-4 to space with bio-capsule intended to carry a monkey to space, paving the way for Human space flight. Iran makes own supercomputer, national OS, one of the world leaders in nanotechnology, biotechnology, launched own SLV carrying turtles, worms and rats to space, own satellites to space, makes own automobiles under own brands, designs, builds own aircraft both civilian and military and improving upon those designs at the same time.
    Until five hundred years ago muslims scholars contributed things like Arabic numerals, the digit zero, architecture, music, books, the Alhambra palace, coffee, etc. But the Arabic culture started to deteriorate about five hundred years ago.
    Muslims began challenging the power of their religious leaders. Muslim intellectuals lost in their challenge of their religious power. Mullahs declared a Fatah that anyone who challenged them should be put to death. The intellectuals folded and Arab culture stayed in the 15th century. Muslims should look at their corrupt religious leaders who hijacked their beautiful culture in order to stay in power. That was the problem five hundred years ago. That is the problem now too.
