Even when you are seeing the whole picture about what is going wrong, you still want to focus on arabs . They dont like democracy and the western world wants to force democracy on arabs nations which is also not working out nicely . so this is the reason that u see those Pan Arab movements and Islamist movements. Arabs are like all other nations and they too have the right to have the rule on their lands. and we dont have any right to force them .

The problem is here only that we want to force things and get out with some thing which we dont accept . what is this Civilised world ? Is it democracy ? Is it to accept that state of Israel ? Is it to give all the resources to the western part ? when we will think like an arab .. we will get the answers what is going wrong from ours side ?

Regarding this Israel ... Arabs do think that they were betrayed by western countries in this matter ever since Israel was created . Israel matter is too complicated for arabs , its having many affects religious , social, military , diginity , weakness. and like the same Israel is having support from western countries reasons are religious , democracy and in the name of civilised world .

Do u think that without the support of western countries who created Israel , Israel would surivive all the wars which it fought with Arabs ... When all the techonologies Israel used on the arabs civilians which was given to it by the west .. Enemy of enemy is friend ... Coz of this only Arabs governments started becoming closer to USSR.

Always problems arise when we force things on other nations .. Stronger nations always put force on weaker nations ... and the same is going on in middle east ... And when weaker nations dont have all the techonologies to defend themselves they start proxy wars, Resistance is always like this .. we see it in a different way and name it terrorism .. The biggest problem of muslim countries is not having techonogies.

When children are born and since that time they see agression and see their families are killed , what u want them to do ... Protest in a peaceful way or to accept the reality and forget abt those killed .they want revolution and revolution always comes after sacrifices .
