Thus the beginning of the real “Arab Spring”. I was a bit of a drifter in my younger days. I got a ride with a dude on his way to California who silkscreened T-shirts for a living. His T’s had a pic of the Ayatollah who deposed the Shah of Iran and initiated the revival of Islam that continues gaining strength today. The Ayatollah wanted to revive the Islam of 700 AD. Islam, more than other religions, comprises the whole of culture. So in a real sense. The ’79 Arab spring took the Muslim culture 1400 years into the past.
