Continuing Conflict in Iraq and Palestine Deepens U.S.-Arab Rift with Growing Costs to Both Sides

Results of the 2006 AAI/Zogby International poll in 5 Arab countries show:

  • Overall Arab attitudes toward U.S. have worsened; negative attitudes have hardened
  • Attitudes toward U.S. policies in Iraq and Palestine are to blame
  • Attitudes toward American values, people and culture have declined as well
  • Uncertainty resulting from these two conflicts has significantly dampened Arab confidence in prospects for economic development and political stability
