Arab Awakening based on universal human value
Though Bin Laden's death marks the end of an era, the fact that it occurred on May 1st, 2011, means that the context is wholly unlike that of even one year ago. The man on the street in the Arab world is no longer afraid of anachronistic despots, and the world at large is no longer afraid of the Arab street. People everywhere feel a kinship with the North African and Middle East uprisings, and the global village has shrunk considerably. As the yearning for freedom stretches eastward, Syria is now in the grips of it, while Iran, Pakistan and China watch nervously.
