The winter of Arab discontent

"The winter of Arab discontent": This title is used by journalist Lahcen Haddad to describe the uprising in most countries of Mahgreb and Middle East

Meanwhile the protests spread out even to ─░raq's southern town of Basra.
In Bahrain several people have been shot. Interresting there: The powerful Emirs are linked with Saudi-Arabia and the Sunni, the majority of people are Shiites.
Will the same things happen in Saudi-Arabia too? The powerful class there is very old (the king passed the eighties), the age level in the country is 19 years! Jobs are mainly hold by strangers, many people are jobless and without a perspective. Will there be a revolution too? For the moment a well known blogger from Saudi-Arabia says: no!

But let's wait and see. Let's wait and see in Turkey too.
