Iraq's Arab Neighbors: Anti-Americanism Runs High

Most Arabs opposed the U.S.-led war in Iraq. Yet many in the Arab world were happy to see Saddam Hussein's regime toppled, hoping it signaled the end of autocratic rule in the region.

Eighteen months later, opinions in the region are dramatically different. Anti-American anger in the Arab world is at an all-time high, shaped mainly by the Iraq war, and a perception that U.S. foreign policy is hostile to Arab and Muslim concerns.

In the conclusion of a series on Iraq's Arab neighbors, NPR's Deborah Amos reports on findings of recent opinion polls conducted in the region.
