Magdi Khalil, Egyptian-American political analyst, said that the Arab people are still angry and that tremendous effort is being exerted to oppress them and prevent another wave of the Arab Spring, reports MEMRI.
According to Khalil, another wave of the Arab Spring is inevitable, whether it happens tomorrow or in 20 years. Khalil explained that Islam, in addition to Arabic and Bedouin culture, is a significant factor in the Middle East that might delay the second wave of the Arab Spring because it is incompatible and runs contrary to democracy, liberty, human dignity, human rights, and religious freedom.
“We can say that what is happening in the Middle East today is that the Arab peoples are angry, that there is suppressed anger boiling beneath the surface, and that enormous and tremendous effort is being exerted to oppress the people and prevent another wave of the Arab Spring from taking place. However, the Arab Spring will definitely repeat itself. Will it happen tomorrow? Or the day after tomorrow? A year from now? In two years? In 10 years? In 20 years? [Such periods of time] are insignificant in the history of a nation.”
