Stop the Presses!
I hope you’re sitting down, because the Associated Press and the Council on Foreign Relations have a disturbing revelation for us: Report: Muslim World Largely Anti-American.
NEW YORK - Anti-American feelings are widespread in the Muslim world and extend to U.S. consumer brands, according to a report released Wednesday. It suggested the U.S. burnish its image with a change in tone and by publicizing aid programs.
The United States should emphasize its development aid to Muslim countries rather than try to persuade Muslims to support U.S. policies in Iraq or in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, according to the Council on Foreign Relations report.
And here’s a lovely footnote from a “focus group” apparently composed of logic-challenged Jew-hating lunatics:
Anti-Semitic stereotypes also were noted. Focus group members saw the United States and Israel as synonymous and estimated the proportion of Jews in the U.S. population at up to 85 percent; it is 2 percent.
