NPR's Kate Seelye reports from Doha, Qatar on the ambivalence that Arabs in the Persian Gulf emirates express about the U.S. military action in Afghanistan. They talk about the need to punish Osama bin Laden and his terrorist network but worry that the United States will go too far and take retribution against other Muslim countries, such as Iraq. And they express frustration with America's 'unqualified' support for Israel's recent actions against Palestinians in the occupied territories.
