The world’s first e-revolution, or as many call it Revolution 2.0, originated in Tunisia a few months ago. In three weeks, the Jasmine Revolution led to the fall of 23 years of dictatorship. The entire world was taken by surprise. No one had imagined such a dramatic and precipitous fall, not even the few, adamant believers who for many long years envisioned changed for the North African country.The impact goes beyond the small country of Tunisia, with contagion threatening other dictatorships and monarchies. This first e-revolution has been like an earthquake, sending shockwaves throughout the Arab world and the Middle East. We have already seen the successful Egyptian revolution and the current ongoing struggle of the people of Libya, Yemen, Syria and Bahrain.
Anyone interested in knowing more about what happened in the Middle East, what is happening and what might happen there in the future.
