The Arab Confederation Project
Contains the Universal Declaration of Human Values
While the Arab world is drowning in its various crises, we are awakened to the fact that there can be no Arab political and economic renaissance and no survival for the Arab identity without an Arab confederation project based on civil foundations and modern human values, realizing the will of the Arab peoples that pulsates with a unifying culture and conscience.
I present to you the book of the Awaited Arab State, along with the Universal Declaration of Human Values, to be a method and a road map to reach the dream, which has become an urgent need, and to break the shackles of the structure left to us by colonialism and preserved by some small minds and weak souls.

They Said About His Poetry
"A struggle between realism and idealism, producing much surrealism. Accompanied by photos taken by the author to complement the poetic meaning of the calm pages."In “Climbing Leaves”, Wissam Charafeddine weaves a web of poetry, music, and photography that we can’t help but get entangled in. We are lured into a muffled entropy of questions which, though left unanswered, delight us in their playful uncertainty."
Yousef Alqamoussi, author of “poems” (2019) and “chapter one: Costa Rica
” With delicacy and the vulnerabilities of nostalgia, Wissam Charafeddine’s poetry enters the heart through a journey of senses accessing memory. His words illustrate place and ignite sensibility while traveling through the pages of the words he creates."
Ali Al-Arithy, Poet and Educator, author of “Safe:
”Deceptively simple, his poetry leads you smoothly, then it leaves you staring at the expanse of the city and the depths of its people. The silence in his poems is a teacher, teaching you to come to terms with seemingly opposite worlds that are, in his own words, swing "under the heedless sky" with "different directions, same rhythm." Now in my first year in Michigan, in the nights I couldn't go there, Charafeddine's poetry captured "the sad Detroit river" for me, bringing me close enough to feel it, but keeping me "far enough to recreate" it."
Dr. Wessam Elmeligi, Professor of Arabic Literature at University of Michigan-Dearborn
