The Ukrainian Peace Deal
Can The Arabs Learn From Ukraine? Now also from Venezuela?
To pulling out from the precipice just in time for the sake of the Nation???
(Reuters) – A breakthrough peace deal for Ukraine halted two days of violence that had turned the center of the capital into a war zone and killed 77 people, bringing sweeping political change that met many demands of the pro-European opposition.
Russian-backed President Viktor Yanukovich agreed to give up powers, hold early elections and form a government of national unity. Parliament voted for changes to the legal code that could see the release of Yanukovich’s jailed rival, opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko.
By nightfall, opposition leaders who signed the deal were addressing peaceful crowds from a stage in Independence Square, which for the previous 48 hours had been an inferno of blazing barricades and protesters were shot dead by police snipers.
Although the flames were out, the crowd was still defiant, holding aloft open coffins of slain demonstrators and making speeches denouncing the opposition leaders for shaking hands with Yanukovich.

Sad what is now happening in Egypt – used to be the leading Arab Nation now reduced to discord, splits and divisions! So are the Arab Nations – others and even those that went through the Arab Spring Revolutions! Like Libya, Yemen etc!
When we Arabs will ever learn? Until it is too late for everyone?
Like George Bernard Shaw said it – or words to similar effect – Islam is the best religion in the world – but its people are the worst!
Leading Islamic Nations instead of uniting all us and for the sake of our Islam are fighting proxy wars – and causing more harm, decay, havoc and disasters to others! :(!
Very sad and tragic!
May The Good Lord Protect and Preserve us from his anger and fury! Amin Amen
