A Sense of Common Destiny

A Sense of Common Destiny


From The Electronic Intifada's Ali Abunimah, a look at revolution - in Egypt and Tunis - that has "restored a sense of limitless possibility, and a desire that change should spread from country to country." It is, he says, just beginning.

"People's expectations have been raised and their tolerance for the old ways diminished. The remaining Arab regimes must now ask not if change will happen but how...In whatever form the revolution continues, the people are saying to their rulers: our countries, our futures, don't belong to you any more. They belong to us."
