Poverty, rising food prices, inflation, human rights violation, and high unemployment were the main phenomena the Arabs were facing. In addition there was much corruption of Arab leaders as shown by some of the WikiLeaks diplomatic cables. The main reasons of the Arab revolts are not limited to internal causes, so it is important to analyze the international causes such as the failure of the war on terror, the Iraqi war and the U.S.A - European strategy of the imported democracy. The protests witnessed in some of the Arab countries are somehow an expression of dissatisfaction with the economic situation. This also creates a political tension resulting from the absence of people say in power.
Democracy- hungry Tunisians began the revolutionary wave of demonstrations and clashes in protest of ill treatment and corruption, beginning a revolutionary wave of protests known as the Arab Spring.

Major governmental changes and swift reforms were made. The transition to democracy began.
One of Egypt’s previous issues was the revolution. Egypt’s revolution in 2011, contributes to its already terrible economy. The revolution was a movement of protesters in Egypt to rebellion against the government of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Millions of protesters of different socio-economic and religious backgrounds rebelled through rallies, strikes, riots, “non-violent civil resistance and labor strikes that began on 25 January 2011” (Wikipedia). The protesters protested against the government of Hosni Mubaraki for many different reasons.
Also, widespread and extensive political grievances constituted a common causal thread behind all the uprisings. The Arab spring led either to the overthrow of dictators or to serious internal contestation and fracturing (Dalacoura, 2012). One of the most essential crisis happened in the Middle East was the violent and controversial military coup and overthrowing the first elected President Dr. Mohamed Morsi in Egypt on 3 July of 2013 which led to chaos, deadly conflicts, and clashes between opponents and supporters of President Morsi. Today, Egypt is still suffering from serious problems and as long as the power will not be hand over to president Egypt will not see a bright day of peace. II.

The movement commenced to range so fast from one state to one more that it was shouted the Arabic Spring as it range to Egypt, Yemen, Bahrain and Libya.

The political, financial and military aid given by the USA to Israel and the political, financial and military aid given by the USSR to Egypt is a good example of how the Cold War was an important player after the Six Day War. As mentioned before, not everything was positive after the 1967 conflict. There were several turning points that affected Israel’s society. The PLO and the Arab anger and resentment transformed their protest into violent attacks, which indeed affected Israel’s national security and caused fear in their society.
There appears to be many possible outcomes for the war but it is still very unclear what is to come of Syria as a country when it is all over. The main cause of this civil war was definitely the influence of “Arab Spring” but there were many other factors that built up to cause the public to revolt. People were very unhappy with the government, partially because many feared it because there was so much state violence and partially because there had been no peaceful transfer of power since the 1950s. It was believed that the only possible change could happen through an uprising and eventually that is what happened.

Those who protested against the government were often injured or killed due to governmental intervention.

The continuing successful and attempted terrorist attacks in the USA and the endless wars and conflicts in which we are involved are a manifestation of political, economical and imperialistic failures in Arab lands. This was supported by Western society with the United States as the largest of powers. Instability, oppression, poverty and political alienation that the citizens of many Islamic-Arab nations experienced within the last hundred years have led to major hatred of the United States by the people of many Arab nations. These sources of hatred can be viewed as remote causes of the endless terror attacks and conflicts around the globe. Through the analysis of these causes, it is possible to find ways to avoid such incidents of terror by solving the problem at the source.
One of the weaknesses of this paper is saying that all Arab countries have a bad economic position. There is some sense of overgeneralization as Qatar and United Arab Emirates have a considerable GDP. Likewise, the author did not considerably develop arguments in case of reasons. So people have a discontent which led to rebel. However to rebel there should be elites who could organize the masses.
