Vancouver, Canada - Not one day passes by where we are not reminded by the Arab Spring. This wave of uncontrolled protests and organized anarchy has not failed either of Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Syria or Yemen, and has left many Arab leaders with a very strong sense of insecurity. It has come to my attention that many chose to describe the repercussions of this wave on Morocco, Jordan, and some of the Gulf Monarchies as a notorious exception. With all due respect, I don’t like to see Morocco in that pile, that is not an exception for us, but sheer normality.
