Is the Middle East on the verge of a second “Arab Spring”?

It is almost nine years since the first signs of upheaval in the Arab world emerged, starting with Tunisia, and quickly spreading east, to Egypt and other Middle Eastern countries. This was the so-called Arab spring, which initially started as a democratic outpouring of popular sentiment, but soon deteriorated into chaos that altered the face of this volatile region.
