If I uderstand you correctly then...Let's not. You're drawing cultural parallels that are, at best, naive and ignoring the massive cultural and religious differences behind any and all revolutions in the Middle East.
Nor, rather obviously, do the rulers in the KSA and elsewhere in the Middle East. That's a totally different possibility, though, to a future revolution by "intellectuals' ... - businesmen, lawyers, journalists, officers, scientists, doctors, teachers...".
Just because Che, for example, was an intellectual and a doctor, that's no reason to think that that was a 'trend' for revolutionaries or that it applies to the Middle East any more than it applied in Asia.
All the people like us are we, and everyone else is They
Asia is not going to be civilized after the methods of the West. There is too much Asia and she is too old.
As for Che then at time he was indeed a symbol of the trend that is not faded completely even now. There are governments in Latin America that still follow the trend.Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet
