A number of Israeli middle eastern scholars / observers have stopped using the term “Arab Spring” and replaced it with “Islamist Spring”, the latter being a far more accurate and descriptive term for what is happening in our neighborhood.

It also happens to cover related events in non-Arab locations like, (e.g.,) Boston.
