Middle East `s Revolution – In the Eye of a Hurricane.

by Kurt Lykke Lindved, Author, Lecturer and Ambassador

The scorching situation in the Arab countries could end in chaos, anarchy and some new leaders who are merely “new wine in old bottles.” And it may even be worse than we think and when we see it. Religious forces as we have seen it in Iran are always looking for the possibility of taking power and that’s not exactly all religious rulers, who are interested in democracy `s freedom to live as you wish.

Have we been asleep for years or just directed a blind eye toward the real world? I have, and wonder why – I did not have ears and eyes on the atrocities that occurred in these countries when I was there –
However, it is not so strange when I now think how “protected” I was during my stays including how “protected” tourists was, but under completely different conditions than we thought and was told.

Dictators, monarchs and presidents in these areas were busy to screening off the international democratic part of the world, knowing that their leadership was neither democratic nor in line with the most elementary rules as described by the Human Rights Commission.

And now what? – How many bodies may we see on the table before the madness will come to an end. It is obvious to Western democratic principles that people have the right to demonstrate under the rules applicable to this area. Almost the whole of North Africa is in the middle of hurricane revolution `s eye and can evolve into anything in the next few months. The rest of the world is now holding the breath, knowing that it can tip over into an international war. It has always been the case that the Middle East and especially the countries that have oil are treated as one may stroke a cat with the hair and not against it by the Western World. We are greatly accomplices and exciting is it to see, which leg the western world are now opting to stand on.

We cannot ignore an important issue – the gap between the many ethnic cultures and rituals are so large, that it becomes difficult to reconcile all parties in a short time. Getting beyond the railing barrier requires courageous people, who have courage and motivation to free us from a conservative mindset, where the many religious and spiritual boxes have blocked and confused people toward new progressive and better living conditions for the world’s population. We still have the “hope” and “life spirit” to move on, but it requires better social and living standards across the globe as the first step toward the second or third step, where humans can live side by side without the many prejudices that today almost are a worldwide disease.
