The Mullah’s shouldn’t worry too much. Obama will do all he can to bolster them behind the scenes to foster “good will” in future negotiations. This may sound like comic irony, but (sadly) it’s not.

> representatives of the relatively moderate, pro-Western governments

They are to Islamo-fascism what Fabian Socialism is to Communism.

I figured most of the people in the area would be happy to get rid of the Iranian regime.

I hope Syria will be next. The Israelis, Lebanese, and Palestinians deserve a chance for normalcy after the years of terror by the Iranian and Syrian supported thugs of Hamas, Hezbollah, and the Palestinian Authority.

Thanks for posting the whole article. What jumps out is the cowardice of the Arabs in opposing a segment of the Iranians. Also, I have no idea what the author means by this:

"Noting that Teheran had been meddling in the internal affairs of the Palestinians, Lebanese and Egyptians over the past few years, another Palestinian columnist, Rajab Abu Siriyyeh, said he did not rule out the possibility that Obama's conciliatory approach to the Arabs and Muslims could have been one of the main reasons why tens of thousands of Iranians decided to take to the streets."

Oblama's "conciliatory approach" to the Ahyatollas gave hope to the oppressed moderates...? Yeah, makes sense to me...

Unfortunately I don’t see why the clerical regime would fall. At most I think Khamenei may be ousted along with Ahmadinejad, but I would predict that even so the basic contours of the Iranian state would remain intact, under new, somewhat more moderate and less belligerent management.

We can only hope for the best result. Twelve Mullahs with bullet holes in their foreheads, butts protruding from the sand, bicycles parked in their “donkeys.” Name the parking lot “The Arab/Obammy Memorial Lot.”

I am sure that the Sunnis would not miss the Shiites either.

Many Arab governments, including the Palestinian Authority, are quietly hoping that the latest crisis in Iran will mark the beginning of the end of the radical regime of the ayatollahs and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Frustrated with Teheran's long-standing policy of meddling in their internal affairs, representatives of the relatively moderate, pro-Western governments in Ramallah, Cairo, Beirut, Riyadh and other Arab capitals are hoping that regime change in Iran would undermine radical Islamic groups such as Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hizbullah. These proxy groups, together with Syria - Iran's strategic ally and facilitator in the Arab world - have long been viewed as a main source of instability in the Middle East.
