ISIS, Refugees, and Anti-Muslim Rhetoric: How the Arab World Is Covering The U.S. Election

In the "U.S. Election" episode of "Mosaic," we look at how broadcasters around the world are covering the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

For this election, what matters most in the Middle East is the battle against ISIS, the war in Syria, and the flood of refugees they have created. In the U.S., Donald Trump’s stance on Muslim immigrants is controversial, but how does it play in the Middle East? Broacasters have focused on anti-Muslim rhetoric and criticism of Western media and the election process. While some pointed out Hillary Clinton's cozy relationship with the media, others have compared Trump's rhetoric to that of terrorists and extremists. The Muslim world reacted positively to Khizr Khan, the father of a decorated Marine killed in Iraq who spoke against Trump's proposed bans of Muslims.
