Document:Arabs Beware the Small States Optionarticle29 July 2013Sharmine NarwaniA succinct introduction to proposals, widely canvassed among Western Elites but otherwise largely suppressed, to impose a new political settlement on the entire Middle East involving the re-ordering of its national borders along sectarian lines.
