Promising Opinions From The Arab Press: Are there legs here?Topics: Middle East News and Perspectives
Two promising articles out of the Arab press!
Muhammad Al-Sheikh( Al-Jazirah via Arab News with thanks to John Burgess) reminds Arabs that history has proven Arab nationalism to be a destructive ideology, and heaps thanks to America.
Also by way of John at Crossroads Arabia, comes promising new on Iraq:
"While many are seeing signs of gloom in Iraq, the Saudis are also seeing some hopeful signs.
One of those signs is that Iraqis are not fleeing their country, looking for asylum elsewhere. They seem determined to make their country work. This editorial also notes that the terrorists are being hunted down and their leaders killed or captured. And the Iraqis are finding a workable political solution, even if it did take longer than the US had hoped or expected."
Both of these are interesting reads, and yes, there are legs here, not quite a crowd yet - but "daylights a coming" and with it a new dawn in the Middle East. I just hope it happens in our generation.
