Posted by on June 06, 2014 in Blog
By Nadeem Istfan Summer Intern, 2014 The most recent American Community Survey administered by the U.S. Census Bureau, a detailed survey distributed to 3 million American families, estimated that the Arab population numbers 1,688,980 people (with an 18,849 margin of error). Due to flaws in the survey’s methodology and other contradicting data, many organizations, including the Arab American Institute, suspect that this estimate is grossly undercounted.

Welcome to the Jungle

Posted on June 05, 2014 in Countdown

In 2009, 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. This poll looks at the major issues driving Arab attitudes toward the United States five years later in seven Arab countries. The poll examines Arab attitudes toward 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.

Language Matters

Posted on March 18, 2014 in Washington Watch
While reviewing polling data on Israeli and Palestinian attitudes toward the current US-led peace effort, what comes through quite clearly is not just the obvious disconnect between the views of both groups, but the extent to which this disconnect is driven by the Israeli-centric language used in framing many of the issues covered in these polls.

This Time Must Be Different

Posted on February 03, 2014 in Washington Watch
Two decades after Israeli and Palestinian leaders signed an interim peace agreement in Washington, DC, the task of achieving a final resolution to the conflict has become significantly more difficult. Not only have the physical impediments to peace grown-- for example, the number of Israeli settlers living on occupied Palestinian lands has increased three-fold to more than a half-million-- but the political ground today is less fertile than it was back then.

The Challenges of the New Year

Posted on December 30, 2013 in Washington Watch
A few months back, the Arab World was shaken by a New York Times article claiming to detail Obama Administration's efforts to disengage from the Middle East in order to facilitate its "pivot toward the East." It didn't matter that the President had just delivered his annual address the United Nations General Assembly in which he spelled out his priorities for the year -- largely focused on his commitment to address: the Israel-Palestinian conflict; the war in Syria; the threat posed by Iran's nuclear program; and the effort to build more democratic societies. Despite his words and the actions that followed, the perception that the US was abandoning the region persisted.

What Iranians Think

Posted on December 09, 2013 in Washington Watch
We've heard what Israel Prime Minister and members of the U.S. Congress think about the interim nuclear deal the Iranian government concluded with the P5 + 1. What we don’t know is how the Iranian people will react? What do Iranians want from their newly elected government and how will this deal play at home? In September, 2013 Zogby Research Services (ZRS) conducted a nationwide face-to-face poll of 1,205 Iranian adults in an effort to better understand their political priorities and expectations, and, in particular, their attitudes toward their country's nuclear program and its regional foreign policy.
