Lets just call it the Arab Century because you just know that's how it's going to be.

And to think... just a year ago all was well in that area. Bin laden dead and al queda on the run, never to be seen again. The Obama campaign imagery sure was nice. A lie, but nice.

I thought that Tunisia already had their "Arab Spring" already.  Are they already sick and tired of what they wanted or something?

The Tunisians did. Now the Islamists think it's their day in the sun, and so the Tunisians will need to go bust their chops.

If they think it will turn into a Glorious Summer, then it will soon be time to do to them what was done to Richard III.

FTFA:  "Today we say to the Islamists, 'get out' ... enough is enough," said Souad, a 40-year-old teacher outside the Interior Ministry in Tunis.

Likely response from the Islamists:

"Inflamed the Arab world".

Hahahahahahhahaah  They're BORN Inflamed and it only gets worse from there.

I blame the heat and their hideously ugly women....  I mean, really.....it's 2000 degrees and your wife has more hair and can probably bench more than you can.

While this is a tragedy, I certainly hope that his martyrdom has an effect on liberalizing North African politics a bit. We'll see I guess.

Yes, i tend to be close minded toward death cults... currious you are not. Open you eyes and let the facts speak for themselves.

You're making a generalization that all islamists are super jihad killer islamists. There are those that prefer a government that has Islam in it (therefore an islamist) but is not out to stone people for holding hands in public

Are you christian, per chance?

Pretty sure any "Islamist" threat is a revival of the "Communist" threat in its infancy. Perhaps the alphabet agencies & The Administration are not getting the public support they once did because people are seeing through their bullshiat.

You are talking about Sharia? do some reading for yourself then decide. Maybe i should have prefaced it with IMHO. No, i have no religious affiliation.

The Arab Spring has been going on since about 630 AD and shows no signs of slowing.

not necessarily. Sharia is strict islamic law. That I agree with having issue with since not everyone is of a religion that would follow that and therefore be running against the law just on beliefs. That said, there are those that prefer more religion in their government without going full-blown islamic law. Hell, we have it in the use. Not with Muslims but with christians. Can you argue that that's not right either since we have a freedom of religion right? Absolutely, but that doesn't stop them. There are moderate christians in government here (see any/everyone that praises god's goodness for America) but that doesn't mean they want super christian law to rule the land, same goes for muslims, buddhists, jews, hindus, etc.

To say that all islamists are extremists death cults is disingenuous and is part of the reason why the region hates us

And that is why i said you should do your own research. Maybe go to an islamic run country and see for yourself. But dont take my word for it, listen in their own words. they are not inherently bad people they have just been brainwashed from birth to hate.

How about we just start ignoring everything that happens in the Middle East?

That would be good for me.

They didn't get what they wanted.  The Islamists have moved in.  I've been calling it Arab Winter for quite a while now, this is just another example of what's actually going to happen.

No.  You're describing Muslims.  Islamists are radical by definition.
