This is an extraordinary moment in the Middle East.
And what is so interesting is that the common denominator in places like Tunisia, Egypt and Yemen is the fact that you have popular street protests that have no ideology, that have no genuine leadership. They’re emerging in some ways because of common denominators, corruption, government mismanagement, opposition to the regime leadership specifically.
So you have Tunisia starting off the Jasmine Revolution through popular social media, access to ways of communicating beyond the state. Then you find Egypt and this very dynamic movement, which is important because, of the 22 Arab countries, one-quarter of the Arab world’s population is in Egypt. –ROBIN WRIGHT, U.S. INSTITUTE OF PEACE–
Can you see what is happening here….this wildfire is going to destabilize the whole world faster than anyone can imagine – and it’s not a bad thing. Just look what is driving these people – its not demagoguism or political subversion. What is motivating them is that they want to live a life free of corruption, control and unnecessary economic hardship. The world we have known it is gone for good, and it is a privilege to be alive and witness the fundamental shift from a society caught in gravity, dualism and time to a New Earth and the age of energy.
Just watch Mohamed ElBaradei, a very unlikely revolutionary leader, with just the right background, contacts and credibility to help the world ride out the wave of destabilising the old and bringing in the new.
