It may only be May but a lot has happened in the last few months across the Arab world. After news of the operation in which Saudi terror mastermind Osama Bin Laden was killed in Pakistan by the US was announced yesterday, tweeps are left reflecting on the year that was.
Egyptian Wael Ghonim quips:
2011 is a year that will be marked in history. Its just May and all of this is happening! #Tunisia #Egypt #Libya #Yemen #Syria and now #OBL
Hanan Yousef, also from Egypt, appeals:
Dear 2011 please slow down! We can barely breathe
From Libya, Ibn Omar notes:
with the death of BinLadin… is this the year of the #ArabSpring or the #EvilArabFall?
And Ahmed Shihab-Eldin adds:
Just a hunch but I feel like looking back at 2011 will be the year that the world changed. #Obama #Binladen #OBL
Last but not least, Ali Al Saeed, from Bahrain notes:
Events have been escalating so relentlessly the past few months. Where is the world heading? At times it feels like being in a whirlwind.
