Countdown: Vol. 10, No. 17

Posted on October 05, 2011 in Countdown
Joe Lieberman (I-CT) just became the first U.S. Senator to call for a no-fly zone over Syria. What makes this proposition complicated is that a no-fly zone would have to entail “attacks on Syrian military assets” in order to make the measure enforceable. This comes only a day after media reports indicated that the Syrian government had warned it would respond to any foreign military action against it with “hundreds of rockets and missiles” on major Israeli cities, including Tel Aviv.

Breaking Through Barriers With Comedy

Posted by on August 18, 2011 in Blog
Arab American comedian Dean Obeidallah was among several American Muslim comedians who traveled to the deep south on a comedy tour entitled “The Muslims are Coming” where they performed free shows in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi and Tennessee. The purpose behind the tour, and the “free admission” part, was an attempt to go beyond their typical audience and reach communities that are not too familiar with Islam and American Muslims.

Arab American Health Today: A Discussion with Dr. Abdulrahman M El-Sayed

Posted by on August 08, 2011 in Blog

By Kristyn Acho Fall Intern, 2014

Although Arab Americans are featured prominently in the media and public discourse, there is still limited research available on the health of Arab Americans. This dearth in information exists largely because large statistical projects to quantify the health of Arab Americans have not been undertaken. These projects are hindered by the lack of data on the Arab American population due to a massive undercount of the community by the Census Bureau, which identifies only a portion of the Arab American population through a...

AAI Statement on the ADC Controversy Over Malek Jandali’s Performance

Posted by on June 10, 2011 in Blog
As troubling as the cancellation, we were disturbed by ADC’s refusal to comment on the matter for an entire day, allowing the story to grow and become an embarrassment to the organization and to the Arab American community. When they finally did release a statement, it was infuriatingly oblique, not addressing the issues at hand.

Will the Arab Spring Lead to a Post-American Era?

Posted by on June 10, 2011 in Blog
By Ed Gaier A recent New York Times Op-Ed by Council on Foreign Relations senior fellow Ray Takeyh argues that the Middle East is headed for a post-American era. In this era, the United States would ostensible have limited ability to project its power and cajole Arab regimes to pursue policies aligned with American interests. He posits that new Arab countries in democratic transitions in the “era of self-determination” will not be as subjective to American foreign policy priorities as previous alliances of patronage have been.
