Arab Spring

During this week the topic was so interesting because the topic itself was explaining that something that new for me. I was so eager to give full attention to it at that time Dr. Hamid held on the lecture class. Indeed it helped me to explore myself into it because he was explaing in clear information which every one could understand it. I have also learned new things that I could not had previous class. It was great experience for me to know about it even I am glad that I could get a lot information about it.

The Arab Spring is a revolutionary wave of demonstrations, protests, and civil war occurring in the Arab world that began on 18 December 2010.

To date, rulers have been forced from power in , Egypt, Libiya, and Yemen; civil uprisings have erupted in Bahrain and Syria; major protests have broken out in Algeria, Iraq, Jordon, Kuwait, Morocco, and Sudan; and minor protests have occurred in Lebnan, Oman and Western Sarah.

There were border clashes in Israel  in May 2011, and the protest in Khuzestan by the  Arab minority erupted in 2011 as well. Weapons and Tuareg  fighters returning from the Libyan civil war stoked a simmering conflict in Mali which has been described as “fallout” from the Arab Spring in North Africa. The sectarian clashes in Lebanon were described as a spillover violence of the Syrian uprising and hence the regional Arab Spring. In September 2012, a wave of social protests by Palestinians demanded lower consumer prices and resignation of the Palestinian Prime Minister Fayyad. The protests have shared techniques of mostly civil resistance in sustained campaigns involving strikes, demonstrations, marches, and rallies, as well as the effective use of social media to organize, communicate, and raise awareness in the face of state attempts at repression and internet censorship.(from Wikipedia)

After all, I have learned that creation of democratize structure is the result of a historical process and it would convey, a paradigm within which all the phenomena of mind are related in some organic way. In addition, better understanding of western modernity despite the painful memories of colonization and even development of critical thinking and return to the moral value of Islam which represent the “Winning the Arab Spring”.
