The United States is viewed less favorably in much of the Arab world today than it was during the final year of the Bush administration, and President Obama is less popular in the region than Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, according to a poll released today by the Arab American Institute, a nonpartisan research and advocacy group.
Attitudes towards the US president and the United States as a whole have been growing increasingly negative over the past ten years due to the invasion of Iraq, outrage over Guantanamo Bay, and continued frustration over the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, said James Zogby, president of the Arab American Institute, which has been tracking attitudes for a decade.
But the current poll is striking in that is illustrates how far Obamas favorability has fallen in the region, after an initial optimistic spike when he took office.
Its because expectations were created that were not met, Zogby said.
In 2008, the final year of the Bush administration, only 9 percent of Egyptians had a favorable attitude towards the United States. A year later, after Obama took office, that number jumped to 30 percent. But now it has plummeted to just 5 percent of Egyptians who view the United States favorably.

Zero can’t even do muslim right.
It’s no wonder since Obama, himself, loaded the gun and pulled the trigger killing OBL.
If the truth were known, Barry is probably “viewed less favorably” in America than Casey Anthony. Unfortunately, the state run “media” ain’t gonna go there.
It is time to expose Obama and start Impeachment Proceedings. Obama is incompetent and now it’s showing!
Zero can’t even do muslim right.
This shows that even the Arab world values integrity, ethics and morals.
Look, we’ve got to give credit where credit is due.
Obama did keep one promise.
He promised that he would implement change.
And today that’s all we have, change.
Ah who needed that folding stuff anyway...
No one abides someone who lies to and betrays his own people.
Why are we giving these AHs one billion dollars annually?
Muzzies are a back-ass group of people who only know strength.
Saddam was a nut, and a horrible guy, but he kept the peace in his country through an iron hand, it is all the muzzies know.
Muzzies smell weakness and fear, and do not respect it in any way shape or form.
Also, I think most muzzies are turned off by his proclamation that he his a Christian, which is grounds for death (converting that is). That also shows further weakness.
Muzzies imo, are one of those groups that will either look at someone 2 ways...either you are strong, and they hate you but fear you, or you are weak and they will hate you and take advantage of you any way they can. Obama falls into the latter, not the former, for sure.
Not a surprise. In muslim countries they respect men more than women.
The world said American must elected this man to be respected and loved again! And it did!
They must be racist!
You can say that again. Coming to a public school near you:
You’d better believe i’m checking Fridays (that’s right, starting now when some schools don’t have summer sessions).
I have to check Dearbornistan, where i’m sure, since they handed over a public school to muslims, this is going on in many schools.
I hate to laugh, but RLY!
