H. Brandt Ayers: Bush and the bombers

Posted by Anniston Star on May 05, 2013 in News Clips

It is surpassing strange that last week we should celebrate the opening of the Bush library while one of the Boston bombers was telling investigators that he and his brother were radicalized by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.It would be wildly illogical and unfair to say that George W. Bush was responsible for the attacks, but it is certainly accurate to say that his wars roiled the Muslim world.There can be no arguing the fact that the two wars were unpopular in the United States and that, according to a Pew Center poll, 73 percent of the world population...

James Zogby: Iranians quickly wearing out their welcome in the neighborhood

Posted by on May 05, 2013 in News Clips

Policy discussions here in the U.S. about Iran and its nuclear program most often focus exclusively on Israeli concerns.

In a new eBook, “Looking at Iran: Iran’s Rise and Fall in Public Opinion,” I explore the way that perceptions of Iran in 17 Arab countries and three non-Arab Muslim countries have...

American Attitudes Toward Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood (2013)

Posted on April 11, 2013 in Reports

For most of the past two decades, American opinion of Egypt has been overwhelmingly favorable. In the 1990’s attitudes were almost four to one favorable—with positive ratings in the 60% range. Today, however, only 36% of Americans have a favorable view of the country. And, in our most recent poll, almost one-half of Americans have a negative view of Egypt, a significant rise even since our January 2012 poll.

While modern Egypt has been known in the Arab World for its cinema, its comedy and music, and its political and intellectual leadership, the image of the country has never been...

Posted on March 11, 2013 in Washington Watch
Policy discussions here in the U.S. about Iran and its nuclear program most often focus exclusively on Israeli concerns. Ignored are Arab and Muslim attitudes, especially those of Iran's Arab and non-Arab Muslim neighbors.

America, The Arab World, And Iran

Posted by The Dish on March 08, 2013 in News Clips

Marc Lynch points out that only “two Arab countries now see Iran as a good model (Lebanon and Iraq), Iran is viewed unfavorably in 11 out of 17 Arab countries, and large majorities of Arab publics sided with the opposition Green Movement over the Iranian government and disapprove of Iran’s role in Syria, Iraq, and the Gulf”:

This should not be taken as a green light for military action against Tehran, though. While support for a military strike with international legitimacy has grown significantly since 2006 in the polling, there isn’t a majority in favor in any Arab...
