King Hussein of Jordan

November 14, 1935 - February 7, 1999

"Peace, if it comes to that part of the world, will mean a great difference to a lot of people and the area's important to the rest of the world. It will mean peace between the followers of the three great religions. It will mean an entirely new future for that entire region, and it will mean the removal of the root cause of a lot of instability within the region and beyond. So isn't that worth the effort?"

- King Hussein, in a 1993 interview on peace in the Middle East
