The newspaper editorial is devoted to tackling the speeding up events in the Arab world that have led to an open horizon of challenges and dangers to all possibilities if the current Arab situation remains as it is now hovering between stagnancy and retreat in a direction reverse to the developments of events. It has become difficult to differentiate between the threatening dangers at the regional, national and local levels.
The editorial maintains that the aggressive and terrorist events taking place in Palestine at the hands of the occupation forces have included everything related to life of the Palestinian people. The situation in Iraq under the American-British occupation is another example confirming that what happens in any Arab country the other Arab countries are not to be separated from it. What is happening in Palestine and in Iraq makes us all in the midst of the strong wind of the tempest. And burying heads in sands is what makes the danger certain and imminent and its confronting of it dictates on all to realize the nature of the dangers threatening all and to seek ways and means necessary for confronting them. In this context there must be a support to Yemen's initiative for holding an emergency Arab summit in order to develop and activate the joint Arab action that in this critical stage in the history of the Arab nation should be very active and capable of action.
