For Spanish Javier Solana, former High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy (1999-2009) of the European Union, the “Arab spring” made it clear that the fear of Western governments to the emergence of radical Islam was wrong.
said Solana, who is visiting Buenos Aires, in a dialogue with three media, including The Nation.
The Spanish diplomat was very optimistic about the future of the region because “the Arabs were truly spectacular revolutions.”
Comment by Adamantine:
I suppose it is possible to simply lie a lot and this is what JS is possibly doing. He cannot know better than we do about the risk of the emergence of radical Islam UNLESS he helped direct these “revolutions”. I say they are at this point simply change in leadership and not change in direction.
