The King of Jordan warns that there could be three civil wars in the Middle East as we move into 2007. Whilst he does not yet have the gravitas of Hussein, he deserves attention. Jordanians are just as capable as any others in the region of going off the straight and narrow but he has steered his country well.
He sees the Palestine situation is key to peace in the Middle East. Even the most casual reader should be able to recognise this but one would have to be Superman to even begin to see where that solution lies. The leaders in Palestine seem unable to force any control on the extremists in their midst such that any agreement seems doomed even before the ink is dry on the paperwork.
