    Rated 4.6/5 stars (130 votes cast)

    I enjoy watching the social responses related to current events. The most amusing were the responses of two segments. The Press, and Religious clerics

    The response of the Arab streets is very clear. Even in far places like Mauritania, Kuwait, Oman, and the Arab and Muslim expatriates everywhere around the globe

    The two interesting responses were, Press and Religious leaders.

    The position of Press

    This one is interesting, because as we know, journalists race to get as much information, analysis details and their vision of how the situation is. Later on, the official statements came out, and the responses varied as follows:

    1. Ignore the official position and continue echoing the pulse of the street
    2. Move to moderation showing both sides of the argument
    3. Radically shift position in line with the official position, even defending the official positions in every possible way
    4. Radically shift position to attack the Arab official position

    The position of the religious leaders

    While this one is also interesting, it showed another sign of Shiite-Sunni difference and what looks like envy. But after the Arab official position was announced again, a huge shift in position mostly in line with the official position.

    For the religious leaders who were very slow in responding, and their responses were very low-voiced disagreement at best

    What this shows is the huge gap between the official and the popular positions. True, Official position goes farther beyond the instant and incident and focusing more about the future of their countries. Yet this conflict of vision will probably end up in conflict.

    "Move to moderation showing both sides of the argument"

    so moderation is the act of doing nothing and taking no sides and being useless. that must be the sunni idea of moderation
