SHOCK!!!! Poll Says That Arabs Hate America....

And I thought all this time that we were Bosom Buddies...

From WASHINGTON (Reuters) -
Eight out of 10 Arabs have an unfavorable view of the United States and only six percent believe the U.S. troop build-up in Iraq in the last year has worked, said a poll of six Arab countries released on Monday.

The poll by the University of Maryland and Zogby International, also found most Arabs did not see U.S. foe Iran as a threat and they sympathized more with Hamas in the Palestinian Territories than U.S.-backed Fatah.

"There is a growing mistrust and lack of confidence in the United States," said Shibley Telhami, a University of Maryland professor in charge of the annual poll.

Of those polled, 83 percent had an unfavorable view of the United States and 70 percent had no confidence in the superpower.

Looking ahead to the next U.S. president, 18 percent of respondents believed Democratic contender Barack Obama had the best chance of advancing peace in the Middle East followed by 13 percent who saw Hillary Clinton as their best hope.

Having read this I believed it was really informative. I appreciate you spending some time and energy
to put this article together. I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and
posting comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
