Adnan Abu Odeh (Palestine, 1933 – ), a Jordanian long-time administration and political insider, diplomat and intellectual, was an advisor to both King Abdullah and King Hussein, and served as Jordan’s permanent representative to the United Nations (1992-1995). Here he provided his knowledge and perspectives on the various dimensions of the Middle East crises, politics and history; the involvement of the various world powers and the United Nations in the various Middle East peace processes. He touched on rarely discussed aspects, including the Fedayeen movement and its Jerash showdown with the Jordanian Army, the historical underpinnings of the Middle East crises and water issues. This interview was recorded on 14 March 1998, when he was a senator of the Jordanian House of Parliament.
