The revolt in Libya makes us seriously revise our attitude to the events in the Arab East… Accumulation of serious social and economic contradictions when it reaches the point, after which an outbreak of social rage follows, is the real base of national protests… The Islamic world with its opposition to globalism is in search for a new self identification.
