Marwan Muasher talked about The Arab Center: The Promise of Moderation. He argues in the book that moderate-minded leaders in the Arab world are losing ground to those whose views are more extreme. He says that the United States needs to do more to increase the influence of these moderate players. Mr. Muasher was joined by New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman and former U.S. ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk. Following their remarks the panelists responded to audience members' questions.

Marwan Muasher has served in many positions in the Jordanian government, including foreign minister, deputy prime minister, ambassador to the United States, and first Jordanian ambassador to Israel. close
