Israel Versus Arab Street Protesters 

By Ali Al-Hail

Al-Jazeerah, CCUN, April 18, 2011

US-Led-Western states, have long, perceivably, been aware of 'Arab' dictatorial regimes corruption.  And have arguably, been sponsoring it in one way or another. Both, the latter, and the former, have been something, Arab people had for decades, been  knowing about.

However, the Western powers, have for years and years, been selectively, silent about it.  Purposefully, because they have totally, been benefiting from 'Arab' dictatorial regimes corruption.  Fundamentally, in regard to an aspect of their corruption related to safeguarding 'Israel' interests in the Arab World, and the wider Middle East.

The double standard policies of the US-Led-Western powers, have long, been too obvious.  One set of rule for 'Israel', and another set of rule for Arabs and Muslims.

To the US-Led-Western states, 'Israel', is a red line.  In many times, not just sometimes, 'Israel' security and safety deductively, comes before the security and safety of Western people.

One presumes, as do many, that, this stand may be pertinent to the 'Israeli' American public Affairs Committee (known shortly, for the AIPAC).  This somehow 'odd' body, have long, been inflicting pervasive influence upon US consecutive administrations, as regard to decision making in the Middle East.

Not until recently, the Western powers, have begun to acknowledge this long-time fact, or, sense of guilt, rather.  The awakening of the Arab collective mind, made possible by the popularity and spread of internet vehicles, such as, 'face book' and 'twitter', which have mainly,  motivated  young Arab, in particular, to take to streets, apprising against 'Israel' and US-Led-Western powers all-time-friends and allies i.e. 'Arab' dictatorial regimes.  Additionally, pressures from popular Western public opinion upon Western governments, have conceivably, come together, forcing Western powers to skeptically, abandon their support to 'Arab' dictatorial regimes, in favor to Arab street protesters.
