The new secretary-general of the Arab League

Western media never captures the texture and tenor of Arab public opinion, especially among the youth on social media. Take the appointment by the Saudi and Sisi regime of Mubarak's foreign minister, Ahmad Abu Al-Ghayt, as the new secretary-general of the Arab League. Now granted, the Arab League is the object of ridicule, and has been for many decades. But for the last few days there has been such an avalanche of ridicule of Abu Al-Ghayt and various images of him next to Livni of Israel has been circulated.  None of that would make it to the Israeli or Western media.
