The Leeds University lecturer Prof. Salman Sayyid said that the understanding of the Arab Spring was not possible by using the classic view of social science.      

Sayyid who participated at the third Arab-Turkish Congress of Social Sciences in Istanbul noted, "The orientalist sovereignty over the social science could not comprehend the Arab Spring yet."      

Sayyid underlined that the process of the Arab Spring must still be watched and that the people now had understood to control their own destiny.      

Saudi-Arabian Eastern Scientist and Researcher Prof. Mazen Saleh al-Mutabbakani, who also participated at the congress said, "to end the persecution and to realize justice in some Arab states, we need change."      

Al-Mutabbakani underlined that he did not want to use the word "revolution" because of its sensibility and added, "Some Arab countries need change. Provision of justice and the disappearance of persecution needed to give the people their rights."
