It is indeed quite ironic that the only true elections in the Arab world were in Palestine and Iraq, who are both under occupation! You will also notice that these two peoples have freedom of speech that is not equal in any “independent” Arab country! It is a sad fact, and the usual angry talk and sermons by nationalists and Islamists among us will never hide!
