Back to Square one?

The Interior Ministry also said 162 people had been detained and 65 members of the security forces had been wounded trying to quell the riots but didn't declare no statistics of people injured whether they were Salafists or others!!

As a result, the government imposed nighttime curfew on the capital and other cities on 9pm which has been announced at 8pm!!

This morning, in a press conference chaired by Ghannouchi, he declares several interesting things such as a call for a protest on Friday to protect the revolution and Muslim values!

On the other hand Salim Abou Ahmed Ayoub is calling for demonstrations against insults to the faith on Friday after the prayers because it's our holy day in Islam. In other words, it means that Al-Qaeda is calling on Tunisians to rise up against Ennahda since Abu Ayoub is the second responsible of Al Qaeda in Tunisia.

To sum up, the result of all these consecutive events which emerged from diffusing rumors and incitement to violence via videos on YouTube and pictures on Facebook, is eventually the decline of tourism and accordingly the collapse of the economy. Nevertheless, I would like to inform whoever is planning to come to Tunisia that I was hanging out in Tunis today and everything is more than normal. Besides, most of the touristic places are outside Tunis.


In addition, the event is based on a politicized division under the pretext of religion, the misunderstanding of freedom of expression on both sides, the lack of an explicit law of blasphemy and not to forget the propaganda of the media!!
