Obama, the US and the Muslim world: the animosity deepens

Posted by the Guardian on February 15, 2013 in News Clips

(Below is an excerpt from Glenn Greenwald's piece in the Guardian which cites a poll the Arab American Institute conducted in 2011)

A 2011 Arab American Institute poll found that "US favorable ratings across the Arab world have plummeted. In most countries they are lower than at the end of the Bush Administration, and lower than Iran's favorable ratings." The same year, a poll of public opinion in Egypt - arguably the most strategically important nation in the region and the site of Obama's 2009 Cairo speech - found pervasively unfavorable views of the US at or even...

Why Arab Parties Are Excluded From Israeli Coalitions

Posted by "Open Zion": The Daily Beast on January 30, 2013 in News Clips

The media reports out of Israel these days are all about coalition-wrangling. Will Benjamin Netanyahu reach the magical 61 Knesset seats necessary to form a government by combining his 31 Likud-Beiteinu seats and the 19 from Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid with those of ultra-Orthodox parties like Shas (11 seats) and United Torah Judaism (7), which might create new opportunities to advance the peace process but could stymie efforts to force ultra-Orthodox Jews to serve in the military? Or will Netanyahu and Lapid instead ally with Naftali Bennett’s settler-dominated Jewish Home party (12 seats), which might be more open to a...

Census Bureau Rethinks The Best Way To Measure Race

Posted by NPR on December 27, 2012 in News Clips

Possible revisions to how the decennial census asks questions about race and ethnicity have raised concerns among some groups that any changes could reduce their population count and thus weaken their electoral clout.

The Census Bureau is considering numerous changes to the 2020 survey in an effort to improve the responses of minorities and more accurately classify Latino, Asian, Middle Eastern and multiracial populations.

Potential options include eliminating the "Hispanic origin" question and combining it with the race question, new queries for people of Middle Eastern or North African heritage, and spaces for Asians to list their country of descent....

‘US Jews more optimistic than Israelis about peace’

Posted by Jerusalem Post on December 21, 2012 in News Clips

WASHINGTON – American Jews are more optimistic about the chances of an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal and are less hardline in their views of core issues such as Jerusalem and settlements than the Israeli public is, according to a new survey.Pluralities of both groups see American Jews’ opinion as important when it comes to making Israeli-Palestinian peace, with 45 percent of Israelis thinking so as opposed to 21% who don’t, and 58% of American Jews who do versus 20% who don’t.That opinion, however, tends to be more to the Left than the Israeli Jewish public, according to a poll conducted in...
