Tariq Ali Explains: The denial of democracy to the Arab World

The best explanation so far into how the west mainly USA and UK are denying democracy to Arab world.  The west had painted a picture that the Arabs were genetically incapable of adopting democracy and the incompatibility with Islam.  Well Tariq Ali hits the nail in the head on this issue:

It is further evident that west (mainly USA and UK) do not give a crap about the Arabs as this is all about Israel and its existence.  The leaders for the Arabs are chosen by the west to play ball with the west and support the existence of Israel.  Any leader who eventually turns against Israel is literally erased off the face of the planet (Saddam Hussein) or turned into an enemy (Iran and Pakistan).  Rep Ron Paul grills Hillary Clinton a few days ago on US Middle East meddling:


  1. Yesterday while watch BBC News coverage of Libya the people who rebelled against the dictatorship told the news reporter clearly they did not want western military intervention, as Iraq was enough for them to see how liberated people are treated by the west. Ron Paul has a point – the mess in which Middle East is in right now is a mess that was originally backed by the west simply to secure Israel. This then rises the question that the current turmoil there may be sponsored covertly by Israel.

    1. I believe its too early to tell what the outcome for Libya will be – Egypt compared to Libya was a walk in the part. Libya is proving to be more of a challenge for everyone. The current rulers in Middle East are watching the events closely in Libya for they may have to go through the same. No party will want to play their cards too early yet.
