What is the view most Middle Eastern people have towards America? says, "As you may expect, the news is certainly not all good. There is a tremendous amount of mutual suspicion. The US is viewed negatively in virtually all Muslim countries. In a multi-country poll we just did for the BBC, we found that in all Muslim countries polled, majorities said that the US is having a mostly negative influence in the world and that the US military presence in the Middle East provokes more conflict than it prevents." As you can see there is tremendous misunderstanding and ill feeling of America due to the wars America has fought in the middle east.

"In some polls, views of the American people are not quite as negative as views of the United States or its government," as you can see Middle Eastern do not have malice toward Americans but rather they do resent some of the policies the US has towards the US.

"Many Muslims see the U.S. supporting democracy in their countries, and many of those who are optimists about the prospects for democracy in the Middle East give at least some credit to U.S. policies." There are some people who see that America has does some postive things around the world such as pushing for democracy. Nevertheless with two debacle wars there seems that there isn;t much optimism in America.
