Running Head: ARAB SPRING1The Arab Spring and TerrorismHSM323: Revolution & Terrorism in the Modern WorldProfessor Lee BennettFebruary 19, 2020
ARAB SPRING2The Arab Spring and TerrorismIn the early 2010s there was anti-government protests, uprisings with the assistance with armed rebellions which spread across the Islamic world. This all began in Tunisia a Country in North Africa. After the word got out from the first protest in Tunisia it started to get other peopleand countries into a different mindset and spread like wildfire into Egypt, Bahrain, Syria, Yemen and Libya to start protesting for themselves. This uprising of demonstrations and protest in the Middle East and Northern Africa regions was deemed The Arab Spring in December 2010. By having these demonstrations and protest the people had a platform to show their displeasure withthe respected governments handling of human rights, poverty, and governmental corruption. Theone thing that the protesters wanted was to have a change in he way the government was ran from an authoritative to a western way of government. The government did not response with themost respect for its people. Military force was used in many of the countries killing and injuring the demonstrators to try and gain order. When force is used it will change the outlook that individuals have on their governments.
