Bookings Institution American

According to Pipes, the unique successes of Bush during the 2001-2008 period were the overthrow of Sadam Husein and Libya renouncing weapons of mass destruction. A little rosy outcome, which calls into question not only the mistakes of former President, but also the strategy designed by his advisers, however, Pipes does not hesitate to load inks against two prestigious American institutions, the Council for foreign relations (Foreign Relations Council) and the Bookings Institution, which took advantage of the last months of Bush’s term to try to develop an antidote to its disastrous policy. The result of this research project is the comprehensive report entitled rebalancing strategy of the future President in the Middle East. The book devotes six chapters to the Arab-Israeli conflict, the situation in Iran, prospects for normalization in Iraq, the fight against terrorism, nuclear proliferation and the political and economic development of the region. Daniel Pipes estimates that the authors of the report do not study very carefully the question of Islamism, the Iranian nuclear danger, the changes both in Turkey and Saudi Arabia, the marginalization of Israel, the Russian threat or capitalization and/or enrichment of energy-exporting countries. He also applauded the idea of establishing a Government of national unity Palestinian and the acceptance by Hamas of the Plan of Arab 2002 peace..
