Can you add an "unsure" option? I'm not particularly informed regarding the Arab Spring

I'm going to leave my reasoning for my answer as my comment: The Arab mind is still attached to Islam as the one and only way forward. So long as this is the case, expect nothing but regression to 7th century ethics and governmental philosophy. Case in point: when Egyptians overthrew Hosni Mubarak, they democratically elected an Muslim Brotherhood member by the name of Muhammad Morsi. Read that again: they used *democratic process* to put an *Islamofascist* to power. And now they essentially went back to square one with Sisi. So long as the Arabs desire theocratic rule and Islamofascism, expect no improvement. Democracy is not the solution, secularism is.
