|Lack of effective leadership and overzealousness|
in religious issues is the bane of the Arab world now.
|Despots and dictators, not people's representatives..|
main cause of Arab unrest at a 2015 Arab League meeting ..
Nobody seems to care for the lives lost, the grieving mothers, parents and children .. Children are made orphans at very early age, they are used in human and sex trafficking, which is beyond any comprehension of a decent way of living. The amount of refugees as a result of this disturbance is causing tensions in other developed western european countries.
North African Arab countries and Syria continue to be the largest sources of refugees around the world presently. The very volatile political situation there, combined with corrupt rulers and terrorist violence by IS, fuelled by low growth, a bleak future and suppression of individual liberties is a main source of concern there. Though United States tilted the cart initially by interfering in the Arab peninsula, in Iraq and dislodging a legitimate ruler there who ensured harmony in society, even though he had his own shortcomings, it is of no use now blaming US for the worrisome developments happening in these countries. How can we redeem the situation now and right a historical wrong done on them ?
Over the centuries lack of democracy, lack of credible leadership in the Arab world has resulted in incompetent rulers in these countries. Often monarchs and dictators try in this complex web of processes to help prolong their reign. The Saud family's control over the largest of the Arab States, Arabia stands threatened with a more informed population demanding their rights and freedom. Influence of fanatical religious fundamentalism and the rise of the terrorist movements like Islamic State and establishment of its Caliphate have added to the fire.
