American Views Abroad

William Fisher reports in Arab Nations Say 'No Thanks' to American Democracy Promotion on Dr. James Zogby, president of the Arab American Institute, testifying before a House subcommittee:

Our polling has shown us that Arabs, like people all over the world, have, as their personal concerns, issues related to their families and their economic well-being, health care and the educational opportunities available to themselves and their children. But Arabs, even those disposed to America overwhelmingly reject US help in dealing with matters of internal reform. Make no mistake the situation of the Palestinians, US actions and politices in Iraq ... Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo Bay, secret prisons....have take and continue to take a toll on America's standing in the Arab world.
