Why radical Islam faces problems now

Interesting video from The Economist released today – one of the points is that radical Islam is facing a lack of acceptance on the Arab street because of the gruesome tactics of Al Qaeda in recent years.  This goes a long way to explaining the largely secular nature of the recent revolts in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya.

After centuries of western warriors fighting radical Islam – could it be that the Arab people themselves will turn their backs on it influenced by social media, a yearning for democracy and the lack of answers Al Qaeda has to the problem of chronic unemployment?
