University of Maryland Professor Shibley Telhami presented this week results from the 2008 Annual Arab Public Opinion Poll. This project was jointly undertaken by the Anwar Sadat Chair for Peace and Development at the University of Maryland and Zogby International.
Here as a pdf file is the entire 110 page powerpoint presentation.

Arabs, like most in the world, judge America for our actions and policies — which under this administration have been deplorable.
