Breaking: Arabs hate us!

Arab attitudes toward U.S. grow more negative. I am shocked, dismayed, heartbroken and I don't know what to do about it. Fortunately, James Zogby, the head of the Arab American Institute has the answer: "What the poll says to me is Baker-Hamilton are right." We just need to earn the trust of our Iranian and Syrian allies, you see.

The survey released by the Arab American Institute found that more than 80 percent of people in Saudi Arabia and Egypt had negative opinions of the United States, similar to previous years, but attitudes worsened in Morocco, Jordan and Lebanon.

The biggest increases were in Jordan, where negative U.S. ratings climbed to 90 percent from 62 percent and Morocco, where they grew to 87 percent from 64 percent.

Attitudes toward American people, movies and democracy were more negative than positive in most of the five countries.

Only U.S. education was viewed more positively than negatively in the five countries.

Notably, residents had negative attitudes toward most U.S. policy in the region. Opinions were most negative about the Iraq war and the Palestinian conflict, but also opposed the United States' policy on Lebanon, its promotion of democracy in the region and its challenge of Iran's nuclear program.
