Stephen Walt puts his foot in his mouth

Let's see Stephen Walt find a way to blame the 'Israel Lobby' for how badly he got this one wrong. It must be another Jewish conspiracy.

The striking thing about the Tunisian and Egyptian Revolutions has been the use of "people power" to oust long entrenched dictatorships without violence and loss of life.

People are learning how to demonstrate, speak for themselves and to articulate their demands. They lost their fear when they saw change was possible. And they got it through determination and persistence.

This is not to say there is a democratic culture in countries with a weak civil society.But the West should take the lead in assisting secular forces and encouraging democratic political parties to emerge. It has a lot of experience in this field.

A democratic Middle East would ensure future wars won't happen and save a lot of Jewish and Arab lives. There is a lot of work ahead. The West can help to build it or let Islamists win by default. That must not be allowed to happen.
