Mr Egypt’s (an Egyptian scholar) long comment on my recent postabout Arab reactions to the US elections. If some people think I’m being negative about the results of the US elections, I’m not. My concern is that Arab reactions to the results are being widely misread in the US. Its a critical strategic issue to understand the reactions, and I don’t think this is happening so far. Middle East policy based on exaggerated or an inaccurate sense of US “soft-power” can be disastrous.
