Almost two years after the Arab Spring got its start in Tunisia, Salafists are intimidating women, artists and intellectuals. Many fear that the government is tacitly supporting the radical Islamists in their efforts to turn the young democracy into a the

The Arab Spring was never about democracy or freedoms, it was only ever about bringing in the Muslim Brotherhood with Sharia law. This allows for abuses and the removal of personal freedom as well as intolerance towards dhimmis. Any non-Muslim or the wrong kind of Muslim will suffer.

I hope that Obama is happy with the suffering that he supported.

Thank you, Cal. This is, indeed, a very important battle, and I hope the voice of non-Islamist sanity wins there. The world very much does NOT need more wacko Islamists taking away hard-won rights and freedoms that so many have worked so hard to accomplish, and replace it with 7th century barbarism called Islam.

So what else did you expect? Here's the world's oldest profession persecuting the third oldest profession; while the second oldest profession for the most part looks on. At least the women in the third oldest profession admit they are whores. It's too bad that the religious fanatics and the political parasites couldn't at least have the decency to practice the same transparency and accountability as the women do. The former Tunisian government had the right approach to the women who provided a necessary service. If you're a woman try walking down the streets of Cairo even before the Arab Spring occurred. I'm told even the pregnant women were not immune to the unwanted advances.

Noted, tweeted, tweeted, shared. We are now paying for poor choices in the past. We allowed some miserable rulers power because they did what we wanted.
