“The Arab spring will turn into a tsunami”

Jordanian Senator Abdul Salam Majali said yesterday in Bucharest that the Arab spring might turn into a tsunami within ten years. “If the leadership of Syria will continue to be contained, this spring will turn into a tsunami. To me, this containment if it stays on, this spring will turn into a tsunami within ten years. But the future is not yet certain,” said the Senator and former Prime Minister of Jordan Majali. He added that the problem is that Syria sided with Iran. “What is happening in Syria, apart from people not wanting the regime, is that West is fighting East: China and Russia and Iran and South America on one side, and the Americans and the Europeans on the other side. I don’t believe this regime will last,” said Majali in Bucharest.
Within a speech Majali had at the Titulescu European Foundation in Bucharest together with the Ambassador of Jordan to Romania H.E. Munther S Qabba’ah and other Arab officials, he talked also about Jordan and its evolution throughout time. “Jordan is surrounded by four powerful countries. We depend mainly of help from outside. We came to the conclusion that the best resource for us is the education. (…) Certain things have changed in Jordan: many articles from the Constitution have been changed so the people have more power than before. But people still want to correct and to improve the system,” concluded Senator Abdul Salam Majali.
