and the Palestinian conflict were the main issues driving deteriorating Arab opinion.
The Palestinian conflict was created by the authoritarian leaders who want their citizens to see that other Arabs are in worse condition, and that that, plus the way they treat their own citizens, is all the fault of the west.
