- The Arab Food Problem
- Published at:Not Found
What would happen if food exporting countries decide to stop exporting food products to the Arabs? Or what would happen if oil is depleted and the Arabs find themselves without income to buy food? Most Arabs will starve to death.
With the present international food problems, some Arab countries such as Egypt are facing real bread problems that might develop into political crisis. One can see long lines of people in Cairo awaiting the turn to buy bread. In Palestine, people are paying a higher price for their bread, and making cuts on their consumption from other food stuff. But generally, the Arabs still can buy their food because they have money to do that.
