Other factors, including unemployment, were also named as major woes in the Middle East region.

The majority of the participants also said ISIS could not establish a so-called caliphate (rule) in the Arab world while 15 percent said yes and nine percent said it would fail to do so.

ISIS Takfiri terrorist group controls parts of land in both Iraq and Syria, where it continues to carry out heinous crimes against all religious and ethnic groups.

Both the Syrian and Iraqi armies backed by volunteer forces have managed to purge several areas of the terrorist group, which is supported by certain regional governments, including Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar.
