Let's face the facts: The regimes of Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon are surviving by suppression. In secular Turkey islamistic tendencies are getting stronger. In Lebanon a civil war is in preparation. Irak is lost in bloody conflicts between sunnies and shiites. Nuclear power Pakistan is only surviving by a military regime. Taliban-forces in Afghanistan are gaining ground every day. Reason: The majority of arab people don't want western democracy, they don't like corrupt leaders and regimes, they want order and justice, a working health care and social system, an order the arab peoples can identify with: An islamic order. The western world completely has lost its credibility and can't offer values relevant for them. By the way: Syria is surviving only by Saddam-style suppression. If you want to win, you got to rethink. This emerging panarabic war will be won by those who conquer the heart of the arab people. Israel is the sandcorn in the dune - not the dune.
