Is the West Thwarting Arab Plans for Reform? – By David Gardner, Financial Times
Publisher: Financial Times
The author discusses the reign of King Hussein of Jordan, believing that the rule of the “West’s favourite benign Arab despot” reveals that even a leader willing to experiment with change, democracy and power-sharing deals was in the end no different from his peers.
The article discusses the King’s actions towards the pan-Islamism and Western “modern” influence, comparing them with actions of other Arab leaders.
