Moderate Islam Watch

From MEMRI, we have translations from the London Arabic Daily Al-Hayat, which talks about hte Arabs' role in missig the opportunities of camp David. One interesting contention:

"Since regional tensions, including the Arab-Israeli conflict, were one of the fronts of the Cold War, when the reorganization of the world began... the military (ex-revolutionary) Arab democracies suffered from pressure caused by this reorganization – for example, with the erosion of national sovereignty, the free market, the globalization of human rights, the [establishment of] international courts, and the rise of the era of the peoples. The Arab regime tried to create a kind of new Cold War, by forming an alliance with Islamic fundamentalism and establishing a new shadow empire in Central Asia."
