Since 2011, the democratic upheaval in the Arab world continues unabated. Bel Ali of Tunisia has fled. Moubarak of Egypt has been forced to quit. Ali Saleh in Yemen reluctantly accepted to leave his post. And Khaddafi has been killed. Bahrein Monarchy resists the wave of change with the help of Gulf States and the Usa. Syrian regime is trying to smash the rebellion into pieces relying on the incapacity of the United Nations to adopt harsh measures. Other countries are no exception and are exposed to this democratic wave. Where elections took place, islamist movements won the bets, to no surprise. This is a democratic choice of the peoples which should be respected. But youth remain vigilant because of the risks of their revolution being taken hostage, confiscated or even perverted. This is a momentous turn in the modern history of the Arab World. The transition is not bereft of hurdles, challenges and risks. This West which supported Arab autocrats should now send messages of hope and support for the peoples who try to topple them and struggle for a better future.
