About this item

Some people argue that in the past there was simplicity, tranquillity, sociability, and spirituality that has been lost. This rose-tinted nostalgia is generally confined to the wealthy. It is easier to wax elegiac for the life of a pioneer. We can solve our problems. The world will not continue as it is. The human race has become a problem-solving machine: it solves those problems arisen in Middle East only by changing its ways. The real danger comes from slowing change. Today it is an easy transition to the days of pacts and other barren projects for Utopia-by-signature. Thus the enemies of the United States, after the World War II, appear as monsters, hateful, unnatural. Hence, the unbounded trust is followed by the unbounded hatred towards the Middle East. The history of Middle East dates back ancient times, and throughout its history, the Middle East has been an epicentre of world affairs. The Middle East is also the historical origin of three of the world's major religions----Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The Middle East is generally an arid and hot climate, with several major rivers providing for irrigation to support agriculture in limited areas. Many countries located around the Persian Gulf have large quantities of crude oil. Why is it so important?

The tragedy derives from geographic position between Israel and Palestine. From this imposed solution has sprung the Palestine's constant fear of Israel. The real tragedy is that isolationism of some Arab countries further weakens the infrastructure of Arab World Unity. Who has turned the Arab countries loose? Foreign policy is simple, selfish and within the realm of possibility. The United States wishes to protect herself from military or political intrusion either by European powers or by Islamic powers. In the last century, the United States began to forget the facts of power and of human iniquity over Korea, or Vietnam or Iraq or Iran or Afghanistan, which her eighteenth century founders had so clearly seen. Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. He who learns but does not think is lost. He who thinks but does not learn is in great danger. Therefore, it is dark all over the Arab World and the sleeping millions do not know there can be no turning back. Absolutism is vested in one absolute ruler having no rational and orderly relationship to the people. The sword, once drawn in anger, will tend to be unsheathed more easily in the future. Comedy in Middle East is concrete-- tragedy is abstract. Both comedy and tragedy build a fire under oil diplomacy. The Third World War is inevitable. It will be the last and final world war. It is an un
