Examining the Arab footprint throughout threads of a shared language, a mostly shared religion, and overlapping historical experience, this discussion of cause and effect huge population growth, demand for food, water, education, and jobs, in addition to issues of global warming and national and regional security is the challenge as Arabs prepare to meet the intense pressures of the 21st century. Arguing that the most direct way of cleaning up the mess in today’s Middle East is to remove the Israeli Palestinian conflict as the prop both for Arab illiberalism and for foreign meddling, this exposé suggests that perhaps the real problem of the Arab world is that it too closely mirrors the hypocrisies already present in the world.
