The Politics of Royal Pluralism in Jordan

The Politics of Royal Pluralism in Jordan | From Tahrir Square | Scoop.it

Jadaliyya - the Arab Studies Institute:

"While the people have demanded the fall of their regimes in streets and squares across the Arab world this year, those regimes have offered a persistent, if predictable, reply: 'the people just aren’t ready for us to go yet.' This accusation of unpreparedness has taken a few different forms in different contexts: 'The people are too sectarian' (Bahrain and Syria); 'too tribal' (Libya and Yemen); 'too Islamist' (Egypt, Libya, Syria); 'too underdeveloped', 'too radical' 'too violent', 'too weak and defenseless', et cetera. In every case, the people are portrayed as inept and a threat to themselves. Meanwhile, regimes clinging to power in the face of mass protests portend that the only solution to this unpreparedness is their steady hand ferrying their societies into the harbor of democratic governance (eventually)."

THAT WAS THE SAME EXCUSE EMPLOYED BY THE MILITARY DICTATORSHIPS IN LATIN AMERICA UNTIL FEW YEARS AGO.

The National:

"Bashar Al Assad's political decisions have rendered him illegitimate in the eyes of many Syrians. But fear of what could come next has kept his regime alive. [...] Syrians' fears are further reinforced by the fact that most of the opposition conferences were organised by the Muslim Brotherhood, the only non-state actor in recent history to slaughter other Syrians along sectarian lines."
