U.S. Reaction to Mideast Crisis

NPR's Margot Adler reports that American Jewish leaders are expressing shock, and American Arabs anger, over the latest violence in the Middle East. At least one Jewish group says Israel no longer has a "partner for peace" in Yasser Arafat. American Arab leaders say they feel betrayed by the U.S. government and media, whom they say are taking Israeli deaths more seriously than Arab deaths. Both groups say support for peace has dropped over the past two weeks.
