    Every where I turn these days I hear, "Political Elite" needs to shoulder responsibility, must stand up, most do reform, must undertake change, must induce better future! Where do you find this so called "Arab Political Elite"?

    I guess we're going back to the Caste system, Where people are separated by some characteristic.

    Mostly being born into it. And frankly I see it everyday more and more. Spoiled rich kids playing "Politics". Now although I welcome the politicizing of all social strata, I also warn against the consequences.

    When people don't really understand the basic concepts of the causes and struggle that many live through, I find it hard for them to comprehend the nature of the beast. Being groomed into becoming the "Political Elite" while lacking both parts of the term!

    Mary Antoinette, was the political Elite, yet failed to understand the basic needs of people. Not out of ill-nature, many claim she was very kind, but because she just didn't live it, can't comprehend it! Someone can describe the pains of labor for a lifetime and if you didn't live through them, you would actually be completely oblivious to it!

    You want political elites? Talk to taxi drivers in Amman, Shop owners in Downtown "el balad" area, to students in Universities, to women carrying their babies and marching on foot back to their homes in southern Lebanon

    In Jordan, alas the only two fronts that are remaining in the society that is Educated AND Political are the far left and the far right (won't call them extreme). The middle is almost all gone and shrinking by the minute, getting more concerned with Hayfa Wahbe and the rest of the junk being pumped into our brains 24/7

    We need to raise this political situational awareness, and throw this stupid social stratification as far away as possible. There is no political Elite-hood. It's another junk-word being stuffed into our brains.

    Lets not confuse that with Political Science.... That in nature is a totally different thing than "political elite"

    coz 3ena el politics yekhzi el 3een bel werasa saret!! el 3ama 7ata leading nations sar shi min el tareka!!
    That's another twist I didn't handle in this article (thanks for pointing i out Arab Lady, and welcome to my humble blog. Looks like this is your frst time here
    Arab politics are very complicated. I hardly understand politics let alone understanding Elite Arab Politicians!
    The so called “elite politicians” phenomena have not been so new in the middle east. I can name almost every country that the sons of the leaders whether they were monarchy, republicans, Democrats, Dictators, Sheiks or whatever having a direct or indirect influence in their governments. Being an elite politician has not been exclusive to the off springs of the leaders, it has expanded to cousins, in laws and the rest of the ruling family members. I have no problem with it as long as this elite politician is working FOR the people, the country and play the politics game fair. So far most of the politicians in the arab world -elite or not elite! - have been working for their own personal good, playing on all fronts with other powerful people, dealing big deals that steer the whole world economy in a way to serve their own vicious greedy nature and expanding their bank accounts until the struggling everyday people are fed up, watching helplessly.  
    How long will it take for the arab nations to rise and revolt against the corruption of their own leaders and their elite politician sons? I am not too optimistic.  It might be in another lifetime.   
    Well nope its not my first time here!!!

    But the problem is that I lose track of wut blogs I visit so I keep on looking 4 them here and there ta tetla3 ro7iiii!!
