The Arab left’s ideology has been distinguished for its miserable proposals. The Arab left has taught us certain political terms such as “imperialism,” “petrodollar” and “backwardness.” These terms were used to describe Arab Gulf countries in particular as Arab leftists have been skilled at insulting the Gulf region and its people. There was a time when some people in the Gulf or the Arabian Peninsula were deceived by these leftist slogans.
