We opted to conduct both quantitative and qualitative content analyses for our methodology--a systematic and replicable analysis of a body of communicated material through classification, tabulation, and evaluation (Altheide, 1996; Krippendorff, 2004; Neuendorf, 2002).

Cultural constructs of Eastern passivity have particular Western resettlement implications for those signified as "Arab refugees." The post-9/11 culture of fear has been well documented (Altheide 2006; Linke and Smith 2009; Mythen and Walklate 2006), as has the impact of the "war on terror" on Middle Eastern migrants/minority citizens (Jamal and Naber 2008; Khan and Ecklund 2012; Kyriakides and Torres 2015; Salaita 2006).
Our approach has been influenced by Qualitative Data Analysis (QDA) (Altheide, Coyle, DeVriese & Schneider, 2008), which combines the elements noted above and offers some guidelines for an emergent form of document analysis, focusing on identification of themes and trends in and across documents.
