King Abdullah II of Jordan

King Abdullah II of Jordan was on the Daily Show. And it was nice to hear a moderate voice talking about the opportunities and the pitfalls ahead for the Middle East. I couldn't find a link to the interview only, so you'll have to scroll a bit. Sorry about that.

And the rest of the interview is here:

I found very interesting his observation that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is really at the center of their politics and concerns right now. And it is giving power to a lot of baddies. Also, his concern that the lack of stability is preventing the governments to create opportunities for a lot of well-educated young men and women who just want a normal life.
