Philip Carl Salzman of McGill University has published a book entitled Culture and Conflict in the Middle East.   He claims that Middle East politics are dominated by the tribal system, in which an extended family or tribe protects its members from other tribes.  And when one tribe gets control of a state, they rule over other tribes ruthlessly.  Daniel Pipes, at History News Network, writes, “Salzman’s deep analysis makes it possible to understand the region’s strange affliction and to identify its solution.”
