Preface by Percy Kemp In 2011, the world believed in the spontaneity of the Arab Spring and the democratization of peoples. But these events would largely be the result of a web of manipulations… The popular uprisings would have been encouraged, even provoked, by the interests of the American government, supported by Qatar and its satellite channel Al-Jazeera. The religious or social icons imagined by the storytelling influenced the masses who also believed in a new order. But the alliance of democracy and Islam has not kept its promises: bloody repression of rebels, civil wars, armies taking power, Salafist commandos, Islamist terrorism, fraudulent elections... We are now witnessing the emergence of a new Arab disorder.
