This report provides a portrait of the Arab population in the U.S., and discusses some of the largest groups within this population at the national level. The data used to define the Arab population in this report were compiled from responses to the Census 2000 question that asked respondents to identify their ancestry or ethnic origin; two write-in lines were provided. Census 2000 data showed that of the 281.4 million people in the U.S., approx. 850,000 reported Arab ancestries and no others (0.3% of the total population in 2000). An additional 340,000 people reported an Arab and a non-Arab a

Several aspects of the Arab Peace Initiative represent significant and positive developments in the official, collective Arab view of the future of Israel in the Middle East. However, Israel should refrain from accepting the initiative as a basis for peace negotiations because it contains seriously objectionable elements. Israel should also reject the "all or nothing" approach of the Saudis and the Arab League.

Census 2000 measured a U.S. population of 281.4 million, including 1.2 million who reported an Arab ancestry. Arabs were 1 of 33 ancestry groups with populations over 1 million. This is the first report the U.S. Census Bureau has produced on the population of Arab ancestry. In 1997, the fed. standard for the classification of race and ethnicity was revised, noting the lack of consensus about the definition of an Arab ethnic category and suggesting that further research be done in order to improve data on this population group. This report contributes to ongoing research about people in the U.S

In March 2004, the U.S. Institute of Peace organized a six-month workshop series, as part of its Muslim World Initiative, to analyze the role of Arab media in shaping the information environment that encourages popular hostility in the region toward the West, particularly the U.S. The overarching objective of the series was to complement the many U.S. public diplomacy projects directed toward diffusing Muslim, particularly Arab, resentment toward the U.S. The series examined the primary media sources of information, perceptions, and opinions among Arab populations -- ostensibly the most hostil

The Nahda sought through translation and vulgarization to assimilate the great achievements of modern European civilization; 2) the period between the two wars characterized by the the development of thoughts which played a leading role in social movements, especially in nationalist movements; 3) the period the Arab nationalist experiments on

After years of ostracism in the Arab world because of its peace treaty with Israel, Egypt has once again assumed a prominent role in Arab affairs and is making a bid for Middle East leadership. For the United States, this quest for leadership raises many questions regarding one of our closest allies on the region and the secondlargest recipient of our foreign aid. Aftandilian, an expert on the Middle East, addresses questions about the impact of Egypts quest on its policy toward its Arab neighbors, the ArabIsraeli peace process, and bilateral U.S.Egyptian relations. He examines the new Arab re
