Will Revolution Bring Down House of Saud?

| No Comments

Fawaz A. Gerges, director of the Middle East Center at the London School of Economics and Political Science, asserts in a February 25, 2011 article in The Independent:

There is a revolution taking place in the Middle East. The young people are emboldened and confident in a way they have never been before, and what we have seen in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Bahrain and Libya could yet take hold in other countries in the region.

Mr. Gerges said,"But if the revolution is going to stop anywhere, it is likely to be in the desert at the gates of the House of Saud, crucially the home of the world's greatest supply of oil." If you want to know why Mr. Gerges thinks the House of Saud will withstand any revolt by its citizens, see Fawaz Gerges: “Saudi Probably Won’t Fall, but if it does the world will change.”
