American wars in the Middle East have always proven unpopular in Arab states but Obama's campaign against Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria is turning out to be a rare exception.

According to a poll carried out by the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies, a majority in all seven countries surveyed (and Syrian refugees) support western led airstrikes against ISIS. Support reached its zenith in Lebanon where 68 percent and 8 percent of those polled indicated "strong support" and "support" respectively. 75 percent of Iraqis also support the bombing campaign, along with a 56 percent majority across the region.

This chart shows the percentage supporting military airstrikes against Islamic military groups including ISIL in Iraq and Syria.
