Briefly on the Arab Spring.....

The Middle East continues to be in a state of flux despite the recent "success" that Morsi achieved in getting Gaza & Israel to stop shooting at each other.

I view what the Economist' KAL put the cycle of violence in as eloquent a way as ever:

This simple depiction says it all.  The more disappointing challenge has been the decree by Mohammad Morsi to take on near dictatorial powers by suspending the law and exempting himself from being accountable to the law.   He "claimed" that this was to actually protect the revolution and insure that democratic rule will in fact occur.        All the liberal and secular forces have been come together to oppose this rule and I find that refreshing simply because the tide of reform cannot change.  It should not change.
