Arab voices : what they are saying to us, and why it matters by James J Zogby( Book )

17 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and Arabic and held by 1,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Arab World is a region that has been vastly misunderstood in the West. This work asks the questions, collects the answers, and shares the results that will help us see Arabs clearly. The co-founder of the renowned polling firm Zogby International draws from 40 years of the most extensive polls from the Arab World to lift the fog that has obscured this culture for centuries. The book brings into stark relief the myths,assumptions, and biases that hold us back from understanding this important people. Here, the author debuts a brand new, comprehensive poll, bringing numbers to life so that we can base policy and perception on the real world, rather than on a conjured reality. Based on a new poll run by Zogby International exclusively for this book, some of the surprising results revealed include: Despite the frustration with the peace process and the number of wars of the past few years, 74% of Arabs still support a two state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. And over one-third of Lebanese, Saudis, and Jordanians think that their governments should do more to advance peace. Despite wars in and around their region and the worldwide economic crisis, when asked "Are you better off than you were 4 years ago?" 42% of those polled say they are better off, 19% worse off. Arabs like American people (59% favorable rating), values (52%) and products (69%), giving them all high ratings. And Canada gets high favorability ratings everywhere (an overall rating of 55% favorable and 32% unfavorable). However, Arabs overwhelmingly rate American society "more violent and war-like" (77%) or "less respectful of the rights of others" (78%) than their own society. Why? Because of the Iraq war and continuing fallout from Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, and the treatment of Arab and Muslim immigrants and visitors to the United States. What type of TV show do Saudis and Egyptians prefer to watch? The answer is, "Movies", which draws over 50% of the first and second choice votes. In Morocco, the top rated shows are "soap operas" and music and entertainment programs, drawing almost two-thirds of the first and second choice votes. Religious programs are near the bottom of the list of viewer preferences, garnering less than 10% of votes in all three countries

This house believes that all foreign troops should leave Iraq immediately( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The debate was heated, especially over the main issue raised which was whether security would improve or worsen if the coalition troops left. Speaking for the motion: 'This House believes that all foreign troops should leave Iraq immediately' was James J. Zogby, head of the Arab American Institute. His co-speaker was Reg Keys, the father of a British soldier killed in Iraq. Mr. Keys stood against Tony Blair in recent parliamentary elections, drawing much publicity to his story and his anti-war platform. Opposing the motion was Ali Al-Bayati, an Iraqi diplomat based in London and an influential member of SCIRI, the Supreme Council for Islamic Revolution in Iraq. Mr. Al-Bayati was joined by Raymond Tanter, a professor at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service and adjunct scholar at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy
