Today’s Arab generations are finishing the job their grandparents started several decades ago by extending the liberation of the land to its people, and in the process, recovering their personal and national dignity. That’s why today’s revolutions are the culmination and embodiment of the social and national consciousness that rejects the repressive Arab state order and favours democratic change. Those rushing to count the losses and gains and to judge the casualties of each passing Friday are missing the point about the historic transformations sweeping through the region. Regardless of barriers and setbacks, the genie has now left the proverbial bottle. This break with the past may not necessarily bring about positive and/or immediate change, but the decisive break has been made.
