Most believe that the protests and overthrows of mid-eastern leaders are a sign of better days to come for the Middle East which will bring with it democracy, more personal freedoms, and a strengthening of the region due to closer relations and increased shared values with the West.

But is the Arab Spring actually the beginning of the end of the Middle East? In an astonishing article, entitled, 'The horizon collapses in the Middle East', written by World affairs columnist David P. Goldman AKA 'Spengler', it says that current trends and stats in the region show an end to regional powers. Turkey, Iran, Syria, Egypt and other mid-east countries (sans Israel) show serious financial problems, aging populations that could collapse local economies, and the incompatibility of historical war-waging tribal groups thrown under an unnatural centralized government, show the Mid-East is on a collision crash which may change the make up of the region indefinitely. Arutz Sheva's Tamar Yonah interviews David P. Goldman, author of How Civilizations Die: (And Why Islam Is Dying Too) as he explains these trends including who it will be good for, and who it will spell out their demise.
