Year four: The seasons turn on the Arab Spring
Aljazeera.com
Inasmuch as a revolution is a break with history, the Arab peoples' revolution broke with history three years ago this December.
antonia ibrahim's insight:

December 2013 was the fourth anniversay of Arab Spring. Arab countries share a common history however, each one of them had its own revolution related to their own circumstances. 

It started in Tunisia  and made its way through Egypt and almost every Arab country. 

The main objective of democratic revolutions is to substitute old structures, regimes and beliefs. They of course face several opponents from more conservative people however after 4 years of perseverance they succeeded to make a break with the past.
