Arab Opinion on American Policies, Values and People 

For the past five years we at Zogby International have had the opportunity to poll regularly and extensively in countries across the Arab world. Some of our polls that have generated the greatest attention have been those that have focused on what Arabs think about America: our people, products, values, and our policies that affect their region. Equally significant, however, have been our groundbreaking surveys of Arab values, concerns, expectations, and needs.

(On June 19th, I delivered the commencement address to the 2008 graduating class of the American University in Cairo. I wanted to share with you an edited version of my remarks.)

We are all the products of the relationships that shape us and the opportunities we are given. By relationships, of course, I mean the families that rear us, the mentors who guide us, the communities that sustain us, and those whom we love and who love us, and who ultimately define the persons we will be.
