There is trouble in Tunisia , mainly between Salafists and the government. The government has already imposed curfew in 8 Tunisian states including the capital Tunis after the violent protests between security forces and Salafists. The clashes started when Salafists attacked some arts exhibition claiming it was defaming Islam in Tunis then the security forces arrested a group of them. The arrests were followed by a series of violent protests by the Salafists in several Tunisian states.
It is the latest escalation between in Tunisia between the Salafists and seculars as well the most direct and violent clash between Salafist and government .The government there follows the Islamist Al Nahda Party.
I am worried about Tunisia because unlike Egypt if the revolution fails there , say good bye to democracy in the Arab World for real. Tunisia is the cradle of the Arab spring without doubt , if it fails it will affect us all.
Of course what happens in Tunisia echoes Egypt and its effects have started. Already our media now is catching the golden moment in Tunisia and is scaring the people from the Islamists like MB and Salafists in Egypt because strangely now Islamists are bad and ..just elect Ahmed Shafik who make them crawl to their dark caves !!!
What happens in Tunisia is dangerous without doubt yet Tunisians will sort it out as they want. I hate how the media is using it in order to market Shafik as the savior against the bad Islamists.
The Islamists in Egypt got their own failures , it is enough to see what happen in the constituent assembly today. By the way huge security down against Islamists did not produce anything except terrorism. Ideas are fought by ideas , educate your people for people and do not fear their choices.
In the Arab world rulers like in Egypt prefer ignorant people to rule because they are easy to be deceived.
I bet some in Cairo are praying that General Rashid Amar would save the day.
