This creates quite an overlap, and so, no, you are not likely to identify "Muslim" emotional perceptions. To say that the perceptions of the middle east are representative of muslim perception would be false, because a sample of muslims from the middle east is not representative of muslims on a whole, who also come from asia, africa, europe, america, etc.
Anyhow, my intention is not to pick on your survey. :) I just wanted to point out that it is wrong to tell people that you are looking for Muslim's views, when in reality you are not. (I'm not sure what made you decide to divide your locations as they are either, but I won't go into that or anything else here. LOL) I agree that you are attempting to understand cultural differences, (but there are problems even within your groupings, imo).
All the best and good luck!
