The Arab Summit....Is it the right thing at the right time?
Everytime there is an Arab summit, I feel excited about the fact that we are already meeting together and may be agreeing -for a change- about a unified point of view or notion. But everytime as an Arab citizen (if this word exists) I get disappointed coz for the last 20 years (since i started understanding politics) the same scenario happens...some repeated sometime aggressive words, some fighting, pictures, food, taking planes back home....and nothing changes...
I am pro Arab unity, and I dream to walk through the Arab countries without restrictions (as it was less than 100 years ago), but I now see the Arab summit a right thing but done at the wrong time coz the culture dominating this generation of Arab rulers and the circumstances makes the summit a waste of money and time that should rather be spent on the development or solving problems of their countries..
Anyway, I will be really happy if the coming summit tomorrow in Saudi Arabia comes up with successful PRACTICAL resolutions...who knows?!
