A Revolution in Tunisia? FAIL! The Religious and Radical Islam spread like a Cancer? Yes, but ineffective and FAIL! Prosperity and Peace in North Africa? FAIL!
The political situation in Tunis is more complicated and less optimistic. Political freedoms have been secured, but social problems remain. The economic crisis has not disappeared. The ruling coalition of Islamists and Social Democrats is losing popularity and society is becoming increasingly polarized and impatient. Contraband alcohol is flowing from Tunisia across its now open border with Libya, a country that formally observes the Islamic ban on drinking. Libyans admit that alcoholism had increased during the final years of Moammar Gadhafi’s rule as people looked for a way to spend their modest share of the country’s oil wealth. Now the Libyans have come up with a new export of their own: selling off the former regime’s arsenal. Some of those weapons have found their way into Tunisia where they are warehoused for possible future needs.
This Islamic movement is incompetent of leading, let’s face it! Major failure! If elections are held soon, the Islamists would have to relinquish power. The main reason is that their electorate is rapidly diminishing. They won the last elections not so much through popular support but because of the fragmentation of their opponents.
Everything looks peaceful at the moment, but as the old saying goes, “If you keep a gun in your home, it will probably get used.” http://www.themoscowtimes.com/opinion/article/tunis-the-birthplace-of-the-arab-spring-2-years-on/478586.html
