ARAB YOUTH WHITE REVOLUTION

Samia Qumri/ Jordan

February 12, 2011

Is a democracy tsunami sweeping our streets? Something we keep hearing ever since the Arab youth up rise has been ignited for weeks. Parades of thousands chanting for freedom, dignity and life without dictators dictating our future. The Tunisian revolution that ousted Ben Ali’s autocratic regime, to the Egyptian scenario sparked by the youth demanding change and reform from the Tahrir square (liberation square) in Cairo spreading to other Egyptian cities, suburbs, and villages-Voices mushrooming to other streets from Algeria to Jordan and to Yemen. 'Dignity’ is a word resonating to all corners in the Arab streets demanding change and reform from regimes that gave its people no alternative but to stand up after decades of autocracy and oppression. 'enough is enough’, 'step down’, 'leave’, 'we demand new leadership we elect.’ etc. slogans build by popular movements making the streets the alternative to ask for new era shaping our Arab World in an uprising that is distinctly nationalist. What outlines these movements the fact that they are solely led as political not religious from all sectors of the community; poor, rich, Christian and Muslim keeping backed by Arab women giving it a liberal and secular taste marching together for one cause one goal. Sentiments dubbed 'social media revolution’. This what I call as 21st century revolution utilizing the social media to share reality with the outside world, building bridges in seconds to spread the actions on ground via words. Even after when Egypt blocked the internet, to suppress the dissenting voices. Maybe I’m able to refer to it as the youth of change the spark every Arab vouch to uphold it till last demand is met. The inkling that has been painted for decades from regimes backed by the US and the West has lost its strings of support built on faded notions of stability and security!

But let’s not forget that chaos is what we try to avoid in tumultuous situations like this yet inevitable especially when popular movements of this sum from all walks of life is involved. Foreign powers will try to take advantage of the situation saboteurs and thugs will be planted inside to upset the equation of change. Therefore these protests and movements should focus on the real goal. It’s in the best interest of foreign powers like Washington and Israel to turn part of the ongoing chaos to its own gain. Remember, international hierarchy demands total obedience and dependence, so when such movements start to call for toppling regimes and reforms needs to be applied will be watched at closely and with concern such as Israel that will see that as threatening to its own security in the region. According to Zbigniew Brzezinski’s much feared "global political awakening". All three regimes of Tunisia, Egypt and Yemen were 'fully compliant vassal states for the new world order.’ There was no need for contrived or staged "color revolutions" to be prompted by the global elite in these countries. That for decades has enjoyed US-military and assistance support. However, the domino-like effect of the global revolution that has spilled the Arab streets is sketched as genuine and pure calls yearning for change and reform calling for the pillars of an open society from freedom of expression, right to assembly to the freedom of press. To put an end for the era of dictatorial regimes backed and supported by the US. These factors have been seething undercurrents of resentment for years; the case of Jordan for one hand is bit different. As Jordanian myself and activist I support calls for more reforms more alternatives to be given to our youth to practice their rights freely but when it comes to our regime for starter its monarchy and knowing it’s the strongest US-ally in the region a change would mean chaos something I would like to avoid, it will become messy and let other opportunistic foreign hands loose. Not forgetting the fact that Jordan’s citizens comprise high percentage of Palestinian originals which can offset the harmony in the social fabric. Recent calls by the new appointed government to form new relationship with the opposition parties is one point including the amendments on the 'public gathering, Financial disclosure laws along the Elections law’ has been seen 'gesture’ to wane the resentment from our streets.

Arab leaders have seen this coming and didn’t expect it so soon still what’s so soon if they have been reigning for over three decades? Yesterday February 11, 2011 was the epic of this 21st century, The Egyptian regime was collapsed after 18days of popular movements swept Egypt President Husni Mubarak stepped down. This marked second Arab regime to be toppled in one month. As an Arab youth living in the Middle East I thought one day our generation will revolt wake up from the coma inflicted upon and will utilize the internet and technology to spread the word. What has been started won’t be switched off easily I can’t predict what happens next though chaos is inevitable, yet revolutions if ignited it takes time for transition. Outside calls for 'Orderly Transition' should only come from inside, matters of the Arabs need to be dealt as inside issues.. And who’s next I guess we just have to wait an see!
