The New York Times > Opinion > Op-Ed Columnist: Arabs Lift Their Voices: “But the important thing about this report is that political reform is now being put on the Arab agenda by Arabs. Yes, it’s scathing about the Western and Israeli roles in retarding Arab democratization, but it’s equally scathing about what Arabs have done to themselves and how they must change – people don’t change when you tell them they should, but when they tell themselves they must. Read this report and you’ll also understand why part of every Arab hates the U.S. invasion of Iraq – and why another part is praying that it succeeds. “
