There is general consensus among U.S. scholars and policy makers that anti-Americanism in the Arab world is at its highest point to date. However, there is disagreement about the root causes of this sentiment. The claim has been made that, 'they [Arabs] hate our freedom' or, 'they hate our values,' while others blame U.S. foreign policy for causing the anti-Americanism. . This study will examine whether Al-Jazeera does in fact contribute to this extreme anti-American sentiment that is reputedly so pervasive across the Arab and Muslim world. Further, it will examine the way Western discourses on terrorism are framed and how Al-Jazeera plays the role of a counter-ideology to these discourses.
