Peres: Mideast revolutions technological, youth inspired

President Shimon Peres said Tuesday that the recent uprisings throughout the Arab world were not political revolutions, rather revolutions done by the youth who utilized technology against dictatorship, Israel Radio reported.
Speaking before a high school in Kiryat Ono, Peres invoked Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu who said that Israel is a stable island amid a tumultuous sea, saying that "we hope the sea calms, because the sea affects the island more than the opposite."
