Abstract: "The most serious hazard to the stability of the Middle East in the coming decade will arise from the region's indigenous socio-economic problems--particularly those caused by population growth--in conjunction with an increasing scarcity and maldistribution of water resources. The fundamental determinants of stability--adequate food, health, housing, education, employment, and other quality of life factors--can no longer endure the perennial neglect and deferral for the sake of ideology and/or security that has characterized past governmental policies in the area."
