The Arab world
The Arab world consists of 22 Arabic-speaking countries of the Arab League which is a regional organization that looks after the affairs and interests of the Arab countries.
Nowadays, the Arab World is torn apart by conflicts that triggered waves of demonstrations and protests, riots, and civil wars in pursuit of democracy, law and social rights.
Journalists and intellectuals are watching with interest the great powers acting from a desire I) to profit or II) to preserve their interests.
There is a mixed feeling of hope and fear vis à vis of the downfall of Arab governments in favor of more democratic, populist, and/or Islamist governments in the Arab World.
The ongoing reconfiguration of powers within and between states shaped a dramatic truth: all states of the Arab world are now very bad.
