    In the 50s it was all about monarchy & 60s we had Pan Arabism. In the 70s they were flirting with communism. In the 80s things started to settle down under dictators some of whom were tame others were radical. Now its POSSIBLY democracy but all the signs are its going to be islamism because so far every country thats got rid of their dictators has replaced them with islamists and all the signs are that the Muslim Brotherhood who are calling for death to Jews are going to be the dominant political force if and when the elections are held. If Assad is toppled its very likely he will be replaced by the Muslim Brotherhood and possibly even Hezbollah not some kind of secular democracy. So far this arab spring looks like its just another fad and we are all getting excited a little to soon. Getting rid of the dictator and holding elections don't mean you have got a real democracy.
