A recent poll by the Arab-American Institute shows that the Iran government has lostÂ Arab support.
In 2006 and 2008,
Arab public opinion favored Iranâ€™s nuclear program and viewed Tehran Iran as an â€śactive defiance to the West.â€ťÂ However, today amidst the so-called â€śArab Spring,â€ť the Middle East is no longer looking for Americaâ€™s greatest opponent, but rather focusing on internal issues. Furthermore, the Iranian regime has been accused of interfering in several Arab countries.
Iranâ€™s leaders, who crushed peaceful protests in the aftermath of the 2009 presidential elections, expressed their support for the Arab protests currently sweeping the region.
