Prince Hassan bin Talal of Jordan on Regional Politics

I caught an interview with Prince Hassan bin Talal of Jordan this morning while listening to the BBC World Service.

Aside from being extremely well spoken, he expounded upon the issues in the region in a very straightforward manner, something that seems to be very exceptional from leaders in the region (or maybe the West just doesn’t get enough exposure to the political workings of the leaders in the Middle East…).

Anyways, it’s a great listen as he brings up many great points on the topic of democratization, political unrest, economic disparity, poverty, and human rights in the Middle East with a surprisingly Western flavor.
