“A key leader of the Lebanese democratic movement argued that his small nation might not have seen change had it not been for [President] Bush’s actions in Iraq. ‘I was cynical about Iraq,’ said Walid Jumblatt, the head of the Lebanese Druze population [in a Washington Post article on February 23, 2005]. ‘But when I saw the Iraqi people voting [in January 2005], eight million of them, it was the start of a new Arab world. The Syrian people, the Egyptian people, all say that something is changing. The Berlin Wall has fallen. We can see it.’ ”
