Tunisia: Hotbed of Arab Spring Jihad Print E-mail

The Tunisian youth, who launched the Arab Spring, are now becoming militant Islamist jihadists. 

The Daily Telegraph of London reports that, "It is just the sort of neighbourhood that Tunisia’s revolution was meant to help. Douar Hicher’s concrete flats are filled with young men and women who drove the uprising that kicked off the Arab Spring of 2011, hoping to usher in a new era of opportunity."

Ayman Zamali is quoted as saying that, “The preachers set their passions alight with superficial ideas of religion. They’re being brainwashed.” 

"But," according to the Telegraph, "something has gone wrong. These few square miles of dusty sprawl in the capital, Tunis, have not welcomed the western-style freedom that many thought the Tunisian revolution was supposed to usher in. Instead, it has become notorious for another sort of revolution: at least 50 of its young men are now fighting with the jihadists in Syria and Iraq."

Tunisians are actively joining the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), an Islamist caliphate terrorist organization.
