Summary Perhaps more than any other corner of the globe, the Middle East has been the source of endless stereotypes, assumptions, and two-dimensional portrayals. Despite simplistic views of some in the media who portray the Middle East as little more than sand covering a sea of oil, there is a deeper and more profound reality. Nuclear programs have been a much more prominent and enduring fixture in the region than commonly recognized and the likelihood is that over the next ten years the nuclear programs and possibly nuclear weapons programs in the region will increase. Change in this volatile region often appears to come slowly but it is inevitable; understanding the dimensions and direction of those changes on nuclear questions can provide a framework for informed policy decisions in years to come
