    Economic development will be critical to the success of the new Arab regimes. Yet, Egypt has fallen prey to anti-foreign and anti-Israel rhetoric and policies that can only retard its own development. The Arab economies need Expatriates to return with funding, global connections, and expertise. They also need to link to a global economy and learn from Singaporeans, Indians, and yes Israelis, about how to transform backward economies into successful ones. Perhaps Libya could invite back the Jews and Italians, who were part of their societies before Qadaffi's reign. If Libya could unshackle from hatred and ignorance to receive help, then maybe the other Arab states could do so as well. No way to progress if hatred of the Jews, Israel, and foreigners once again become the easy way to explain Arab societal failure.
