What Do Arabs Think of America?

What Do Arabs Think of America?

Walid Phares reminds us that there is not a monolithic Arab opinion. The sort of opinion that will make CNN is that of people like Asad Abukhalil, a California teacher: "When Bush speaks of Democracy, I call on all Arabs through TV to rush to the shelters. It is war!" He continued his "analysis" of the speech. Instead of human rights he said: "jails are being and will be built in the region and in Iraq."

And, there is also the quietly skeptical view. But, there is also the joyous view, in Kuwait, Iraq and among the reform movement in Iran, there was joy.
