Ousting of Tunisian Islamist Government on Horizon?

‘”For Tunisia’s Sake – Rebel!”

If Egypt’s “Arab Spring” followed Tunisia’s, Tunisia’s ousting of ruling Islamists may be following Egypt’s. According to Muhammad bi’l Nour, the founder of Tunisia’s “Tamarod,” or rebellion movement — named after the organization that led the June 30 Revolution against the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt — already 1.7 million Tunisians, nearly 20% of the nation, have in just a few weeks signed onto the organization calling for the ouster of the Islamist-led government of Tunisia.
