    Regime change in Arabia should be effected by the West with the return of the Hashemite family to the peninsula. The corrupt Saudi State has shown itself to be the incubator and sustainer of radical Sunni fundamentalism and inter-faith hatred. The establishment of a Hashemite Arab Constituional Monarchy in what is today Jordan, Arabia and Iraq will give back influence to the one leading Arab family that still upholds the noble, practical and peaceful traditions of Arab culture. Within this pan-Arab state there would certainly be a place for a Palestinian entity and in the future perhaps Syria as well. Such a state will insure that the Arab people find their rightful place on the world stage and will once again be able to contribute their great gifts and strenghts to world society.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
