"This is not the first time that the 'Arab Street' has risen up in revolt, and those revolts are not unique to the 20th and 21st Centuries. This is not in any way a western-style revolution like that in Great Britain in the 1680s, North America in the 1770s, or France in the 1790s. This will not result in a new 'democratic' polity or in a collapse of Islamic authoritarianism similar to the collapse of European empires in the Great War or the fall of the Soviet system in the USSR and Eastern Europe in the 1990s."
