“Equal standing to…Israelis and Palestinians… is a very dangerous insult”

Posted on September 20, 2011 in Campaign Statements

"The Obama policy of moral equivalence, which gives equal standing to the grievances of Israelis and the Palestinians, including the orchestrators of terrorism, is a very dangerous insult. There is no middle ground between our allies and those who seek their destruction."

“Obama’s wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya…was a jihadist’s dream…”

Posted on September 12, 2011 in Campaign Statements

“Many Bush-era Republicans still seem to have learned nothing in the last decade. Ignoring that 9/11 was caused primarily by Islamists seeking retribution for constant U.S. intervention in their “holy land”—something Osama Bin Laden made perfectly clear—Bush launched a war in Iraq, giving al-Qaeda its best recruiting tool in its history. Obama’s wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, and whichever country next strikes his fancy, was a jihadist’s dream—a new American president, who despite promising “change” seemed hell-bent on continuing with the same foreign policy as the last president.”

“What would we do if…China, did to us what we do to all those countries?”

Posted on September 12, 2011 in Campaign Statements

  “The purpose of al Qaeda was to attack us, invite us over there, where they can target us. And they have been doing it. They have more attacks against us and the American interests per month than occurred in all the years before 9/11, but we're there occupying their land. And if we think that we can do that and not have retaliation, we're kidding ourselves. We have to be honest with ourselves. What would we do if another country, say, China, did to us what we do to all those countries over there? "This whole idea...

Turner’s Park 51-related sensationalist tactics are the basest form of disrespect

Posted by on September 12, 2011 in Blog

Bob Turner’s stance on Park 51 is hardly a secret. He made pillorizing the mosque a cornerstone of his failed 2010 campaign against Anthony Weiner. He held a rally against it on September 7, 2010. And the people in New York’s 9th District said no—to Bob Turner and his hateful campaign tactics.

This year, he’s dredging up the same bigotry. We all thought this campaign had reached historic lows with its incessant pandering and posturing on the Middle East. But now Turner is dragging the September 13 special election to the true nadir of politics. His television spot politicizing the mosque...

Arab Americans and the 2012 elections

Posted by on September 01, 2011 in News Clips

by James Zogby

For Arab Americans, the 2012 election will be different.

Many of the same critical issues that shaped the 2008 contest are still in play, and will define the national agenda in 2012: Iraq remains unsettled; there is no Israeli-Palestinian peace; the U.S. economy is still in shambles; and intense partisanship continues to impede solutions to some of our nation's most pressing problems. Nevertheless, this election will be different.

For one, the Arab world is different, with dramatic new developments reshaping the political map of the region. Across the Middle East, Arabs have risen up demanding change. No...
