Rabat - The feature that seems to dominate political discourse in the Arab world these days is the attempt to divert attention from the real structural social, cultural, economic and political problems to focus it either on imaginary problems or on those of others. What is called politics, culture, education and successes and failures is a total diversion from the universal understanding of these into instruments at the service of the few dominant groups. Likewise, what is referred to as law and order, security and stability are but the conditions in which their own rule and comfort can last.
