The Arab Uprising has been an issue of Middle East and North Africa (MENA) since the late 2010, when its spark got ignited in Tunisia. The domino effect spread in the region dragging countries into a state of restlessness and confusion. The thesis follows a comparative approach in which two outstanding countries in the region are compared: Tunisia as the initiator of the spark and the leader country in its path to democratization, and Egypt as a powerful Arab country which, despite not falling into civil war, was still being dragged in the mud of authoritarianism. Two major factors that contributed to the process of events taking place in the two countries were the military and Islamic parties. The military had its effect on the revolution while siding with or against the benefit of the nation; the Islamic parties of stronger presence in the country also had their effect on the process of events in either opening or not opening the path for dialogue and secular development in the country. Both agents with their inherited perspectives and ideologies on the way of ruling led each of the mentioned countries to its own different path. Luckily, with the Jasmine Revolution, Tunisia was given the chance to tear away from the dictatorship; but unluckily for Egypt, the circumstances surrounding Rage Revolution pushed the country further into the claws of authoritarianism.
