Salafists Rising in Tunisia
Michael Totten, Dispatches
I don’t expect Tunisia’s Salafist problem to lead to an Algeria-style civil war. It could happen, but I doubt it that it will. Tunisia has a pacifistic streak in it that’s highly unusual.
Salafism, though, is an ugly beast and its adherents aren’t pacifistic at all.
