Proposed Scale for Measuring Arab Political Perception: Case of the Egyptian Perception of Threat During the 1967 Crisis

Auther : Mostafa-Elwi Saif

This paper contributes to the construction of an Arab methodology of quantitative content analysis, necessary because Western traditions of content analysis  are not applicable to the study of Arab political documents, mainly due to the unique structure and usage of the Arab language. The paper constructs a scale based on a typology of sentence types in Arabic, each type being given a certain quantitative weight. This scale is then applied to measure and analyze Nasser’s perception of the different aspects of foreign threat during the May – June 1967 crisis, namely the sources, targets and types of threat as well as the Egyptian policy values threatened.

The most significant finding is that Nasser’s perception of threat developed and changed as the crisis evolved. To date this methodological scale has been applied to limited data, and other social scientists are encouraged to participate in widening the scope of this research.
