    When you don't understand, it is better not to write. This is an example of someone who sees things from the outside, who even tells wrong information. First: The revolution members refused to meet with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, she got second hand information during her visit. Second: Her conclusion that "those who begin the revolution are not always those who in the end climb to power" is completely wrong, revolution members are included in the team who runs Egypt now, they are even part of the popular delegation that tours countries to restore Egypt relations. Third: The writer assumption that "strong infrastructure of civil society, demonstrations are no alternative to the establishment of institutions, which is essential for the consolidation of democracy", comparing what happens in Israel and Eastern European countries to those of Arabs show his lack of understanding why Arabs are really uprisings. Democracy is not on the top of the list of Arab uprisings. Injustice, poverty, frustration, and ignorance are leading force in Arab uprisings. In Tunisia and Egypt, people still exploding in anger, and expressing their demands for better life. Societies in those two countries are being re-shoveled now and might take sometime. Then, after the corrupted casts are completely gone, and things are settled, a strong infrastructure of civil society will emerge, then the writer can re-write his article.
