Arab Americans Vote In Large Numbers

Arab-Americans vote in Large Numbers

I’m watching al-Jazeera, which is broadcasting from Dearborn. The guests are saying that the Arab-Americans came out to vote in very large numbers. A Chaldean Christian representative is saying that his community favors Bush, because his Iraq team is already in place, whereas Kerry would take six or seven months to get up to speed. A Shiite cleric is saying that his people will go for Kerry because Bush gave the Iraqis an occupation rather than liberation.

The general impression is that even Arab-American Republicans have turned against Bush.
