REVIEW: Arab eyes on disliked 'ugly Americans'
AbstractReview of: The ‘Ugly American’ in the Arab Mind: Why do Arabs resent America? by Mohamed El-Bendary. Dulles: Potomac Books, 2011. 211 pp. ISBN 9781597976732
It is not the place of this review to make judgement on the rights and wrongs of what is going on in the Middle East. But it seems axiomatic that Western journalistic coverage of the region’s conflicts can be little more than blinkered without a measured attempt to first make an effort to understand the depth and source of Arab feelings about the place of Israel and its perceived champion, the United States.
