According to the 2019 Gallup Global Emotions Report, Palestinians are the fourth angriest people in the world.
Surveying over 151,000 people in over 140 countries and territories, indexes focused on positive and negative experiences.
While Armenians were found to be the world’s angriest people, followed by Iraqis and Iranians, Palestinian Authority (PA) residents came in at fourth place, with 43 percent of PA residents reporting feelings of anger, compared to just 24 percent of Israelis.
