   schema:description ""Conflicts of varying intensity continue to affect much of the Arab world, while other areas endure spillover effects impeding peoples' fundamental right to live their lives free from fear and want. Worst affected are Syria and Iraq. The resulting catastrophic loss of life, with more than 22 million people displaced by conflict, means we are witnessing the most abject human tragedy since the end of World War II. This book highlights how this Armageddon in parts of the Middle East stems at least in part from moral and political failures by the West, and how world leaders enabled the likes of the militias and proxies of Iran, Daesh and the Muslim Brotherhood. In the wake of increased terrorist attacks around the world and at a time of countercultural revolutions of global and historic proportions, spearheaded by terrorists who use Islam as a cover, and by other extremists and nascent far-right parties in the West, Khalaf Al Habtoor underscores the Arab perspective on key challenges in the Middle East, and issues a clarion call for Arab and non-Arab states to stand 'hand-to-hand, heart-to-heart' to fight this alien sickness that is tearing the world apart."--Publisher description."@en ;
