Iran, Turkey and Saudi: the regional race for the Arab spring

Al-Rasheed, Madawi (2011) Iran, Turkey and Saudi: the regional race for the Arab spring. Al-Akhbar.

Full text not available from this repository.


The Arab Spring has successfully removed three autocrats from the stage, while others may be on their way out. But it has brought three regional powers face to face, each competing to shape the outcome of the revolts in pursuit of its own national interest. Iran, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia are struggling either to contain the revolutions or model them in their image. All three seem to be competing in search of lebensraum, or a sphere of influence, where they aspire to create living spaces for ideologies, influence, capital, and military outreach.
