Lebanon is in chaos, as it struggles to rebuild politically and physically. Tensions between Iran and the US are again mounting over access to arms and their rivalry in the region, with fears of a showdown this fall. Syria is nearing a decade of war, with no imminent prospects of peace or reconciliation. ISIS still has an estimated 10,000 fighters menacing Iraq and Syria. Yet, in the midst of volatile times, Israel and the UAE signed the first peace agreement in more than a quarter-century. Where is the Middle East headed in these turbulent times – toward more conflict or new peace?
