    One must hope that affairs in the Arabian peninsula do not become reduced to, on the one hand, repression by feudal monarchs and chieftains of Shi’a populations and urban youth seeking modern transformation of their societies and, on the other, resistance to such repression increasingly led by less democratic and inclusive elements. A struggle reduced to these terms on a prolonged basis would set the region back in many ways and serve to exclude more productive alternatives.
