The book title — "The Arab Center: The Promise of Moderation" - conveys an academic exercise for eggheads who made a career of the Mideast peace process. It's about the peace process all right, but also a fascinating inside look by a 50-year-old Arab statesman, the first to write a book in English, who was privy to all the secret machinations since the age of 30.
Mr. Muasher says his book is also a call for Arabs and Israelis to "embrace diversity in the region rather than demonize it as a destructive force, and to adopt policies of inclusion.
The $2.2 billion, 420-mile physical barrier between Israelis and Palestinians that snakes in and out of the West Bank to include major Jewish settlements, ostensibly to keep suicide bombers out, had another objective, writes Mr. Muasher.
