At the New Arab Foundation and the Arab Peace Corps, “ we give youths reasons to live for, not causes to die for.”
Caveat: With so many Arab countries each of which has its unique history and issues, it is difficult to write about the Arab world without offending someone, even offending everyone. It is the sad fact that the Arab world through its own doing and with help from colonizing power is on a course of self-destructing and making itself irrelevant to the world except as the largest market for military hardware.
