Poll Shows Arabs Dislike Bush Hat tip LGF
If there were any justice this AP story would be headlined "Arabs Have Collective Psychotic Break With Reality"
Seventy-nine percent of the respondents cited Israel as their biggest threat, while the United States was named by 74 percent. Iran, which Washington considers a major threat because of its nuclear ambitions, was named by only 6 percent of the Arabs surveyed.And then there's this tidbit:
The most admired leader was Hassan Nasrallah of Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed Islamic militant group in Lebanon, with 14 percent.Well, it's all the company you keep.
French President Jacques Chirac followed with 8 percent, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with 4 percent and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez with 3 percent.
Hezbollah, Ahmadinejad and Chavez are all adversaries of the United States, while Chirac was at odds with Washington in the run-up to the Iraq war.
Oh, and AP, it's all right to call Jacques an "adversary."
