FILE - In this March 2008 file photo, Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, left, clasps hands with Syrian President Bashar Assad, at the Arab Summit, in Damascus, Syria. Egyptians go to the polls next week in what is essentially a one-candidate election - but almost nowhere has democracy taken hold in the Arab world. From Morocco in the west to Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Gulf emirates in the east, monarchies have proven more stable than places that experiment with government of the people. Non-monarchies like Syria, which before their war did have functioning central government, hardly make a pretense of democracy. (AP Photo/Hussein Malla, File)
