Nearly 5 years ago, President Obama delivered his landmark speech in Cairo - a speech that was largely received with enthusiasm by an Arab world ready for a new era of U.S. policy. In a new poll conducted in seven Arab countries, Zogby Research Services (ZRS) looks at the major issues driving Arab attitudes toward the United States today, including U.S. policy on the Syrian conflict, Egypt's interim government, negotiations with Iran, the two-state solution, and U.S. commitments to improving ties with the Arab World.
