Revolt of the Youth?

Comrade Joseph Massad sent me this (I cite with his permission):  "All these references to “Thawrat al-Shabab” or “the revolution of the youth” by Tunisians and Egyptians, and now Libyans, are making me sick. Are we to conclude that the Iranian Revolution and the Russian and French Revolutions were led by the middle-aged and the elderly? What madness is this? The “Young” include people aged 15 to 60  and older, who were part of the protests in Egypt, Tunisia,  Yemen and Libya, and Jordan and Bahrain. Enough idiocy about the revolution of the “youth”!"
