    From NT Times:

    "Many Arabs fear the U.S. invasion of Iraq was a precursor to a wider policy of forced regime change throughout the region, where Western-style democracy is -- at best -- in its infancy.
    Syria and Iran have recently been subject to sharp comments from the U.S. administration, adding to regional nerves.
    ``We are all worried. This adds to our problems and our stifled anger,'' Moussa said.
    Both Moussa and al-Thani said the region needed to change and was taking some steps in that direction, but that changes orchestrated by the United States would not be welcome.
    ``Change should not be imposed,'' Moussa said. ``This should emanate from the people themselves. (Democracy) is not a gift that is presented to you.''

    The truth is democracy is the last thing we want in the Arab world.
