A just-released Arab American Institute survey revealed that each year since 2006, Iran's standing among other Middle East nations has declined, so much so that today majorities in most countries in the Middle East and North Africa see Iran as a meddlesome source of sectarian disruption. Just eight years ago, there was widespread support for Iran across the Arab world. So what happened? Zogby will look at the dramatic change in Arab and Muslim attitudes toward Iran during the past decade and the policy implications resulting from that shift.
