peoples of the Mid-east to recognize it.

I totally agree and view it in a strange way as a confirmation of Gundar 
Frank's theory of third world development: when the capitalist countries are 
in crisis - the chains are loosened.  But that doesn't lead to the 
projection of a mid-east unification a la Yoshi's wish.
