ABSTRACT
Even though most of the Arab world views the insurgency in Iraq as a nationalistic struggle against foreign occupation, American and Coalition Provisional Authority spokesmen routinely describe it as a band of terrorists, thugs or Ba'athist deadenders who hate freedom. This simplified picture of Iraq is evidence of a vacuum of information and a one-sided approach to the region, and is frequently tackled by Arab writers. In a region that lives with the daily reminders of continued Israeli occupation of Gaza, the West Bank, Golan Heights and Shebaa Farms, in addition to a recent history of European colonialism, opposition to foreign occupation is a logical response.
