US too needs to listen better to Arab opinion

Listening and learning

While we are looking at the US, it too needs to listen better to Arab opinion. America's favourable ratings among Arabs, which were at dangerously low levels during the Bush Administration, got a boost from the change in policy expected by the election of Barack Obama. Three years later, US favourable ratings are lower than they were in 2008, as Arabs see no change in how America relates to the issue they still see as central to their relationship with the West – that is, the unresolved matter of Palestinian freedom. -- Dr James J Zogby
