Unrest extends from Syria to Libya and passes through Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and Bahrain. Six Arab countries have been affected by the spring of change and the darkness of an unknown future awaits them. Spring here doesn’t come with a positive or a negative connotation. It is, rather, an important season in the history of these countries - a season that must end for another to begin.
The scene in Syria is the harshest and the most painful of all. The rest of these countries are living through a state of unrest, the ending of which is difficult to predict. The region’s geographical borders and governments have changed since World War II, and since the Sykes-Picot Agreement.
So, how will it end in Syria after its people, despite the high price they’re paying, have proven that their insistence on achieving change is far more than the insistence of other Arab people?
The case of Bahrain and Yemen
Libya remains a difficult case. We do not know where the winds of change will carry it. Will it be divided? Will it be ruled by extremist parties?Abdulrahman al-Rashed
