At a time when the rhetoric from and about the Middle East is given to extremes, it's not often that we have the opportunity to listen to a fair, reasonable, and authoritative voice from the region. In this clip, Rami Khouri, senior fellow at the American University of Beirut's Issam Fares Institute, argues that the majority of the Arab World seeks values like justice, accountability, and democracy. He goes on to give a nuanced take on the role of Saudi Arabia and Wahhabi Islam.
