The Tunisian election result isnt simply a victory for secularism over Islamism | Monica Marks 29.10.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
The battle between Nidaa Tounes and Ennahda is more complex than enlightened secularists versus backwards Islamists A self-styled, secular, modernist party called Nidaa Tounes won against the Islamist Ennahda party in the Tunisian election this week . For many, the subsequent headline Secularist party wins Tunisia elections will seem more impressive than the fact Tunisia just completed its second genuinely competitive, peaceful elections since 2011. Indeed, in a region wracked by extremism and civil war, the secularists victory will strike many as further proof that Tunisia is moving forward and is the sole bright spot in a gloomy region. Some may prematurely celebrate, yet again, the death of political Islam, arguing that Tunisians achieved through the ballot box what Egyptians achieved through a popular coup, rejecting the Brotherhood and its cousin-like movements once and for all. We should exercise caution, however, in labelling Nidaa Touness victory part of a seamless sweep of democratic ...

Monkey Cage: Tunisian elections bring hope in uncertain times 27.10.2014 Washington Post: Politics
It’s a new day (again) in Tunisia. On Sunday Tunisians headed to the polls to vote in the second, countrywide elections since former president Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali left power in 2011. The first elections were filled with excitement; the world watched intensely, and citizens — many unpracticed but euphoric — waited patiently for hours to cast their ballots. They were the first assembly elections in the Arab world after the popular overthrow of a longstanding dictator — ever. No one was sure who would come out on top (although the moderate Islamist Ennahda party was heavily favored), and it was unclear what the future would hold. But it was a moment to ...

The Fearleaders for War 27.10.2014 Truthout.com
Over the past six months, the reactionary forces that call themselves the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) won a series of stunning military victories in both countries; carried out massacres and rapes of thousands as part of a war on religious and ethnic minorities; and released a series of chilling videos of the beheadings of Western journalists and aid workers. The rise of ISIS could be the occasion for political leaders and the media to acknowledge how the violence and oppression unleashed during US wars and occupations have mutated and re-emerged in new and horrible ways. Or they could inject a fresh dose of Islamophobia into the public bloodstream to build support for more war. Cue the racist panic. The B-list celebrity bigots from the Bush era are seizing the moment. Former New York City Mayor and Republican presidential hopeful  Rudolph Giuliani  led a protest outside the performance of an opera whose creators had the audacity to portray both terrorists and their victims as ...
