Yearning for freedom and democracy is unstoppable

even in KSA, says Fadel Gheit, a managing director at Oppenheimer & Co.

"The root cause of the Middle East unrest, Ghait says, is inequality. Decades of autocratic rule have increased frustration that the vast wealth of the oil-producing countries in the region is in the hands of a small privileged few, and this frustration is finally boiling over. Although governments are making small concessions designed to quell this frustration, Gheit believes the yearning for freedom and democracy is unstoppable."
