Most of this literature undermined the influenced of external motivations and knowledge which have been instrumental to certain occurrences in developing countries.

This narrative seems to gain less attention compare to western views on the issues that surround the Arab quake. However, this investigation relied on secondary sources of data which is mainly extant literature vis-à-vis Marxist theories with the view of de-emphasising certain notions and bring to the fore realities of events in the Middle East and North Africa.
