The Middle East revolutions

    The Middle East is facing a big change these days through the revolutions that are happening in many of its countries.
The first revolution has started in Tunisia as the police men attacked a poor street vendor, which make him made him burn himself using gas, this was his way to protest and he died, which made people feel bad and give them strength to protest.
This act became the catalyst for the Tunisian Revolution which led then the president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali to step down, then few days after that, the Egyptian people started their own revolution asking for freedom, democracy and a total change of the system. As a result, the Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak has stepped down.
Then many other countries such as Libya, Bahrain, Yemen and Algeria have started their own revolutions which made their governments accept many of their requests immediately.
