I rarely post articles here by others. But the piece my friend Bilal Ahmed has penned for Souciant today is an absolute must-read for anyone dealing with issues around the Middle East, terrorism, Islam, et al. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Please check it out.

In my latest piece for Souciant, I look at what President Obama can do to create a more positive view of the United States in the Arab world, and how some steps that need to be taken in response to the Arab Spring can actually help move the politics around Israeli-Palestinian peace forward. In turn, that forward motion would also, obviously, help enhance the US’ standing in the Arab world, a pleasant symbiosis that I highly doubt Obama will pursue.
