A very brave man

This article in the Middle East Quarterly describes how liberal Iraqi parliamentarian Mithal al-Alusi has persisted, in spite of political troubles and the assassination of his two sons, to argue that Iraq should make peace with Israel - as indeed it should with all the states in the region. He is also a prominent defender of the free market, press freedom, and human rights, including women's rights.
