ABSTRACT
The author discusses the protests that started in Tunisia and spread throughout the Arab Middle East. According to the author, people who have suffered from poverty and humiliation were able to oust U.S. allies, Tunisian President Zine Ben Ali and Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak. Some demands by people in many Middle East countries include jobs, democracy and an end to corruption and police brutality. The U.S. and Israel are concerned that if free elections will be held in Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood will take part in the new government.
