Arrow Will the Arab Spring Deliver on Previous Hopes for a More Democratic and Safer World?

Will the Arab Spring Deliver on Previous Hopes for a More Democratic and Safer World?

With the democratically elected ascent of a Muslim Brotherhood candidate to President of Egypt, many are looking back on where the Arab Spring was a year ago; a chaotic but spirited uprising that was thought to have been fueled by secular and liberal interests that would eventually be the catalyst to ending oppressive governments in some of the darkest areas of the world. One year later, there is some hesitation from global observers to call the movement that began in Tahrir Square a success.

Jonathan Evans, director general of Britain’s Intelligence organization MI5, said in a lecture in London on Monday that the Arab Spring has empowered al-Qaeda–perhaps the least favorable outcome for the West.
“We appear to be moving from a period of deep and focused threat to one where the threat is less monolithic but wider,” Evans said.

Christian Whiton of DCI International Advisory appeared on “Real News With The Blaze‘ Tuesday to discuss whether the Arab Spring has indeed allowed Al Qaeda to spread like a cancer, or whether the movement and region will trend to a more positive direction. Watch a clip from the segment below:
O Israel
The LORD bless you and keep you;
The LORD make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.
