Even people from the UAE support an Iran with nuclear weapons? That's shocking.
The UAE is a pretty small part of the Middle East; they might well be against this and still be outnumbered by people from e.g. Afghanistan and such.
Sorry to be a pain, but the Afghans weren't part of this study. That said, NYKevin has a point.
Little-known fact: There is no word in the Afghan langauge for "nuclear weapon". They do, however, have nineteen separate words for "dirt clod".
Another little known fact: Ethnically, Afghanistan is overwhelmingly Pashtun, Persian (of one variety or another) and Hazara. You will not find any Arabs whatsoever living in Afghanistan in significant numbers. There is no such thing as "the Afghan language" as the population is almost evenly split between speakers of Persian and Pashtun. As to why so many Americans (on this site and elsewhere) have in their heads the gross misconception that Afghanistan is a land of Arabs, I can only guess, but it is quite telling to the sad state of that nation's media and education system that the general populace lacks even the most basic knowledge about a country they've bombed, invaded and continue to occupy- after all these years.
