Low value of peace treaties

The riots that erupted in Bahrain, Algeria, Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Jordan illustrate just how unimportant peace treaties really are in the Middle East. Egyptian opposition figures have hinted repeatedly that the Camp David era is over. In Jordan, the local monarchy, which has been kept in power by Bedouin bayonets, is now trembling as Bedouins openly oppose the king. When the monarchy is toppled, the Bedouins will join hands with Jordanian Palestinians and abandon Jordan’s peace treaty with Israel.

A really interesting thing would be a spillover of riots from Bahrain to Saudi Arabia. Though the White House warned ‘autocrats’ about the changing world, the US cannot afford a Shiite revolution in the Saudi Arabian oilfield region.
