For the United States, next week marks the beginning of an intense, two week engagement with Middle East leaders. Two new polls are vital to understanding the moods and opinions of the Arab public and American voters: join us Monday at the New America Foundation and Tuesday at Brookings Institute for valuable insight you won't find anywhere else.

On Monday, President Obama sits down with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, beginning an intense two week engagement with Middle East leaders. The new release of a Zogby Interactive survey, "American Perceptions of an Arab-Israeli Peace: A New Zogby Poll on Domestic Attitudes Toward Obama's Middle East Policy" offers critical insight to the undercurrents running through the political landscape here in the United States.

Commentators John Zogby, President and CEO of Zogby International, and James Zogby, President of the Arab American Institute, join respondent Amjad Atallah and moderator Farah Stockman to discuss the results of a recent poll that reveals a deep partisan divide, with voters who supported the President overwhelmingly supporting a "get tough" policy to stop settlements and achieve a two-state solution to the conflict.

Tuesday at Brookings Institute, the Saban Center Policy Forum unveils "The View from the Middle East: The 2009 University of Maryland/Zogby International public opinion poll."  As President Obama prepares to address the greater Muslim world from Egypt, an in-depth understanding of the mood and opinions of the Arab public is critical to framing the challenges faced by the administration in the region. Join Shibley Telhami, Principal Investigator of the poll, Saban Center Nonresident Senior Fellow and Anwar Sadat Professor for Peace and Development at the University of Maryland and Dr. James Zogby, founder and president of AAI, along with Marc Lynch, Associate Professor at the Elliott School of International Affairs and moderator Martin Indyk, Director, Saban Center.
