"In the past several weeks, one after another, decades-old dictatorships have been challenged across the Middle East -- in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and elsewhere.  Some have likened these events to the democratic revolutions that swept across Europe in the late eighteenth century — France, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy, and Poland, and course in the American colonies.  Indeed, the Middle East protests are said to be taking place in the name of democracy."
