The article discusses a recent poll which was conducted in the countries of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Morocco, and the United Arab Emirates. In this poll, Arabs from these countries were asked about their opinions on Iraq's political situation since Operation Iraqi Freedom. The poll found that most Arabs felt that Iraq was worse off than it had been before U.S. intervention. Contending that this finding is contrary to opinions of actual Iraqis, the author suggests that Arabs had been influenced by the Arab media and Arab government which promoted anti-U.S. sentiment.
