Israeli society is split on its acceptance of homosexuality, but is still far more accepting than other Middle Eastern countries, according to a new report by the Pew Research Center. The report, titled “The Global Divide on Homosexuality Persists” asked respondents whether “Homosexuality should be accepted by society or homosexuality should not be accepted by society.” Respondents were asked to say which option was closer to their opinion. The same question has been asked by Pew since 1994. The Pew survey found that, around the world, there is an increasing acceptance of homosexuality in many countries, although acceptance still remains sharply divided based on country, economic status, religion and political leanings. A number of countries included in the survey have even seen a double-digit increase in acceptance compared to just a few years ago. In the US, where same-sex marriage is legal, 72% of respondents said homosexuality should be accepted compared to just 49% as recently as 2007.
