"Leaders there “can’t rely on 20th-century tools to keep the populations quiet any longer.”The real transformation is that the days when information flowed only from the top down, & Arab governments could control the voices in their countries, are long gone. With Twitter, Facebook and WhatsApp widely diffused in the Arab world, information now moves horizontally. Jordan’s King said just one thing keeps him up at night, and it’s not ISIS or Al Qaeda. It’sthat 300,000 Jordanians are unemployed and 87% of them are between 18 & 39,prime working years." That hopeless mess for youth is the same across the middle east! Today, the U.S. doesn’t have ambassadors in Egypt, Turkey, Iraq, the UAE, Jordan orSaudi Arabia, & the U.S. ambassador to Israel, a former Trump bankruptcy lawyer, is so enthralled with the right-wing Jewish settler movement that he is more a propagandist than a diplomat."
