Many believe that the benevolent Middle East is an impossible pipe dream due to its long history spanning some 5 thousand years and therefore highly unlikely if not totally impossible. In fact they will often cite all the barriers in fundamentalism or insurmountable problems to overcome.Many say that it is beyond hope to take a large population of the billion people throughout a very large region and bring them into the first world status of all the first world countries. And they debate definitely not in this present period stating it will take many more generations and each attempt which fails leads to another generation of hate and animosity for the next future period.Many people blame the issues with fundamentalism in religion and indeed this is a huge factor however there is a large group of moderates Islamics and Muslims in Middle East who indeed are interested in change. And in the program to bring her Middle East and all people of Muslim origin forward for a brighter tomorrow many see increasing tension and do not feel any sense of forward progression.However if you look at some of the nations in the Middle East we have seen change and for the most part a forward progression for mankind as a whole. Not in all areas, but in enough regions to say indeed there has been much progress in the last 50-years. Now then in looking back, perhaps we can see change over a longer span and should therefore not be so hasty to chock off the current progress as not being positive. Change of this magnitude takes time and it behooves us to allow for some patience in these Middle Eastern matters.
