William Morrow and Company Inc.
Predictor Dr. Mari’on Mushkat is a professor of international law and international organization at Tel-Aviv University of Israel. He also

Research Institute, and has written several books on international affairs.
The successors of Khomeini’s regime in Iran will be defeated by a coalition of Kurdish and other minorities, autonomous movements, and liberal and
left-wing groupings, supported by both the USSR and the US. A nuclear clash between the superpowers in this area will be prevented by a renewed
partition of spheres of influence and the reentry of the US in large parts of the Middle East.
After a clash between Syria and the PLO on one side and Israel on the other side, the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty will be suspended and a new
international conference on the Middle East will take place. This will result in the emergence of a Palestinian moderate state encompassing the
Jordanian Kingdom and the greatest part of the West Bank. Once more Soviet influence will be increased in the area as the price for Soviet agreement
not to interfere militarily in the armed conflict.
Production of new energy resources will be put into operation, and Saudi Arabia and Libya will lose their wealth. Both Countries will start to
develop a new political democratic order.
The US an all the West, together with the Soviet bloc, will agree on common steps to effectively fight hunger and underdevelopment in the third world.
The first important agreement on arms control and disarmament will be signed at a special UN General Assembly session.
After a cruelly suppressed armed revolt of Polish dissidents, the USSR will agree to open negotiations on federal links between the two Germanies. At
on of the follow-up Helsinki conferences, a commitment will be made by all parties to implement all three baskets of the Helsinki Final Act (i.e.,
political, economic, and cultural cooperation).
Soviet preparations for a first-strike nuclear attack on the US will be discovered. However, the Soviets plan to attack the US in a way that will
avoid damaging Western European industries in order to secure their use for the Warsaw Pact nations. The US will strike first, and the majority of
Soviet centers will be destroyed along with nearly 100,000,000 Soviet citizens. It will appear that the Soviets were late with their plan and are
unwilling or incapable of a retaliatory nuclear strike. They will agree to open negotiations for a new world order.
The negotiations started after the first Nuclear war four years ago will end in economic, political, and ideological convergence between the former
NATO and Warsaw Pact members.
A joint East-West military observation committee will disclose China’s preparation for a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union and for the occupation of
Japan. The committee’s admonitions will result in the prevention of a renewed nuclear clash but on the condition that all Southeast Asia will become
an exclusively Chinese sphere of influence and the Soviet Far East will be demilitarized.
A federation of all Middle East countries will come into being with Jerusalem as its capital, but with a Christian enclave to which the Vatican will
be moved on the decision of the then black Catholic pope, Dr. Ulusolo Mojo.
The generations-old war in South Africa will come to an end. However, the white minorities will be asked to remain, and political rights will be
granted to them.
The first regular communication between the earth and the moon will be festively opened in the first atmospheric city, to which the headquarters of
the UN will be move and where its transformation into a transnational, federal world authority will be proclaimed.
