Perhaps we should be calling it the “North African Spring” because of the differences between the events of 2011 inside and outside of North Africa. Certainly Tunisia is culturally closer to Libya and Egypt than it is to Syria, and it may be that the turnover of the regimes in three major North African countries is rooted in cultural characteristics that are not found in identical form in other Arab countries.

Is this a report about Tunisia’s first free elections or a paid advertisement for Ghannouchi and his religious zealots ?

Ghannouchi and his bearded hordes cannot represent the Great Tunisian People and his various cultural and political components … Tunisia is greater than these retrogrades and their Qatari and western backers !

We shall overcome !

REUTERS, when you take it upon yourselves to describe dead people as ‘martyrs’, your journalistic credibility goes right out the window.
