Is Syria’s Tragedy an “Embarrassment” to America?

Posted by on June 01, 2012 in Blog
Surely McCain would never describe it as “embarrassing” that the U.S. can’t intervene to end the serious violations of human rights in China, to say nothing of dozens of other problems that the U.S. can’t do much about. What is embarrassing is our unwillingness to correct course on matters that should be perfectly within our control.

“Syria is a puppet state of Iran…[Obama] is afraid to stand up to Iran.”

Posted on February 22, 2012 in Campaign Statements

"Syria is a puppet state of Iran. They are a threat not just to Israel, but they have been a complete destabilizing force within Lebanon, which is another problem for Israel and Hezbollah. They are a country that we can do no worse than the leadership in Syria today, which is not the case, and some of the other countries that we readily got ourselves involved in.So it's sort of remarkable to me we would have -- here again, it's the timidness of this president in dealing with the Iranian threat, because Syria and Iran is an axis.

By Maha Neouchy

Ground Zero has occupied the attention of Americans for over a decade. But a little known fact about the site, which is now being brought to the attention of Americans everywhere, is that it was once home to one of the first Arab American neighborhoods in the U.S. From the 1870s to the 1940s, the Lower West Side in Lower Manhattan on Washington Street was once an Arab American community known as “Little Syria”, “The Mother Colony”, “Bowling Green Village”, or “The Syrian Quarter.” It ran from Battery Park through the current location of the 9/11 Memorial...

Posted on October 31, 2011 in Washington Watch
Several months back, when the Arab League suspended Libya's membership and passed a resolution supporting a "no-fly zone" over the country; it appeared to be a one-off affair. Muammar Qadhafi had worked hard, for decades, to make himself a regional pariah. His bizarre behavior, his reign of terror, and his absurd policy pronouncements had long outraged and embarrassed many across the Arab World.

Arab Attitudes Toward Syria: 2011

Posted on October 25, 2011 in Reports

Executive Summary

What emerges is stark relief from the results of this poll is the degree to which the Syrian government of Bashar Al Assad has become isolated and is looked on with near universal disfavor across the entire Arab world. Just three years ago, we polled in 11 Arab countries asking respondents to name a leader they most respected. In five of these countries, Bashar Al Assad ranked among the top three mentioned - the only Arab leader to be mentioned in more than two states. As the results presented below make clear today, support for Al Assad has virtually dried up.

The overwhelming...
