Arabs See Israeli Occupation More Threatening Than Iranian Nukes
The latest “Arab Attitudes” survey, released Wednesday by the Arab American Institute Foundation, gives the lie — and rather convincingly, too — to the notion pushed by neo-conservatives and other factions of the Israel Lobby that Iran’s nukes are seen by Arab publics as more threatening to the peace and security of the Middle East than Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories. The entire poll, which covered Morocco, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Saudi Arabia (KSA), and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), deserves attention (and should offer no comfort at all to the Obama administration), but a look at tables 18 (p. 5), 26-30 (p. 8), and 31 (p. 8) provides yet more evidence that the occupation is costing the U.S. dearly in the region.
