None of this information is particularly new "news" to most people. However, the increase of violence in these uprisings is showing the emotional/psychological state of many in this vast region. Whether or not all generations are in agreement as to what their particular goals might be they still move forward with destabilizing their governments. The sources of strength that these protestors are relying on are in all reality radical formats of the same thing they are overthrowing. Religious movements that are espousing additional platform ideas support them, and they are bent on radical implementation of Moslem laws and possibly a poll tax for any who are not Moslem (and this writer does not doubt other measures, that Jews are already familiar with from history).
