The Bedouin community based in the desert, not a few of them
live in the suburbs, which could be isolated from transport such
as railways and cars, and the mass-media such as publishing and
broadcasting was unable to effectively counter the invasion of the
Internet utilizing easy telephone lines or mobile phone recently.
On the other hand, the 'Return to Bedouin' in the Arab society,
in which the tendency to become independent taking the opportunity
of the Great Arab Revolt in the beginning of the 20th century, had
advanced. The Arab male fashion, the formal one of which we see
on newspapers or television today, almost follows the Bedouin's
clothes, from the upper to the public.
The Internet technology enables 'opened communication' which directly
connects numbers, while the Bedouin's paradigm sticks to 'closed communication'
through which only a minority talk with each other directly.
The crisis of the internal disintegration of the Bedouin community
has no more remained in the desert, and begun overspreading the whole
Arab as bottomless chaos which can lead up to the self-collapse of
the whole society of Arab.
Transition to indirect democracy has not advanced because the spread
of the mass-media, indirect communication means, has been delayed,
further worse acknowledgement of defeat in the Middle East War pervading
the whole society, drive to organize and operate society has begun
declining and the society, as a counterbalance to the above, has begun
putting the helm towards the direction in which they try to embody
inner space described in the Qur'an in a secular social system or
return to the spiritual climate of the Bedouin having been collapsing
Economically advanced nations such as Europe and America which consider
that indirect democracy and market economy are right and have the
Christian paradigm as the background, they feel so apprehensive about
such veer of the Arab society that they have gradually strengthened
external pressure on the Arab society by various means.
Through the synergism between the internal collapse by the Internet
and the external pressure headed by the IMF (International Monetary
Fund) as well as the WTO (World Trade Organization), the Arab society
has fallen into ultimately oversensitive condition.
Under the situation that it is difficult to reach an understanding
using a representative democracy, handiwork to try self-assertion
by having recourse to violence is quicker and easier to see the result
than the one through dialogue. That is the rise of terrorism.
Different from the society of the West or Japan which has moved from
active direct democracy to representative democracy and now is moving
to informative direct democracy, the Arab society has to move headlong
from minor direct democracy to major direct democracy without experiencing
representative democracy. The root of the problem lies there.
Culture which has been cultivated in long history for more than tens
of thousands of years is all identity of society and the tribe, and
cultural assets, in which culture formed and bored fruit, are the
sole key, perhaps, to reconstructing its own identity which the Arab
society has nearly been losing.
By making cultural assets humans' common property, it becomes possible
for the Arabs to virtually share Arabian cultural assets.
