      The Arabs watch Iran with forlorn envy


      “...Arab political culture ... remains autocratic and rigid 

      at the top, and passive and frustrated at the grassroots.”


      By Rami G. Khouri 
      The Daily Star, Lebanon

      "Arab regimes and leaders have worked themselves into a lose-lose situation whereby they would be unhappy if the Iranian regime stayed in power and unhappy if it were removed through popular challenge. The same awkwardness defines the perspectives of Arab citizens."
