Great Interview with Noted Scholar Fouad Ajami

An excellent interview with Fouad Ajami:
The recent uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, and Yemen represent an “avalanche on the autocracies of the Arab world,'' according to renowned Middle East expert and Johns Hopkins University Professor . Fouad Ajami. 
“I think now the Arabs are expressing this incredible moment of liberty,” said Prof. Ajami, in  an interview with the Jerusalem Post's Mordechai Twersky and broadcast Jan. 27 on
What particularly caught my intention was him likening the current wave of exuberance in the Arab world to the great revolution of 1848 much as I did in an earlier post.
