During the month of September 2015, Zogby Research Services conducted face-to-face polls, surveying 7,400 adults in six Arab countries (Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and UAE) and Iran and Turkey. We had been commissioned by the Sir Bani Yas Forum to explore attitudes toward a range of crises across the region including: the conflicts raging in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, and Libya; the situation in Palestine; the formation and utilization of a Joint Arab Force; the P5+1 agreement with Iran; and the threat posed by and the root causes of religious extremism. We also surveyed Iranians and Iraqis about developments within their countries and their expectations for the future.
