The Arab League says it will not abandon countries facing social and economic turmoil after popular revolutions. The bloc adds that Egypt and Tunisia will receive financial support from other countries in the Middle East, as they recover from political chaos.

First it was Tunisia, then Egypt, and then several other countries in the region demanded the same, including Jordan, Algeria, Yemen, Bahrain, and Iran.

The Council of the Arab League held an emergency meeting, at the level of Permanent Representatives, to discuss the situation in Tunisia and Egypt.

The meeting started with the participants' standing a moment of silence, and reciting Quran for the souls of Egyptian and Tunisian martyrs.

The Council hailed the "white and civilizational revolutions" that erupted in both countries.

During the meeting the Arab League agreed on offering financial support to Egypt and Tunisia, in order to overcome the repercussions of the revolutions that broke out in the two countries.

The current scene offers an important lesson about how groups across Middle East are absorbing the message from Cairo, and tailoring it to their own aspirations.

Arab government and leaders will have to accept and deal with the recent wind of change.
