    Tunisia’s secularists said their fears about an Islamist takeover were being realized on Tuesday after a senior official in the moderate Islamist party which won last month’s election invoked the revival of a caliphate, or Islamic state. Footage posted on the Internet showed Hamadi Jbeli telling supporters that they were now in the "Sixth Caliphate, God willing."

    Increased Unrest -Tuinisia

    Increased Unrest - Tuinisia

    While many in the middle east now look at Syria's drama which (enter stage left) includes a despatch of Russian helicopter attack assets into Syria to support Assad, the Islamist area of Tuinisia has broken into a state of increased unrest.

    Reports from MSNBC show that the new President (who, BTW, declared he wishes to help usher in the Sixth Caliphate), has been faced with governance challenges as the populace riots in violent protests about attacks against Muslim culture by an art exhibit.

    Excerpt from link is below.



    These are terrorist groups which have lost control, they are isolated in society," he told a Tunisian radio station, per the BBC.

    Tuesday's clashes came a day after a group of Salafis forced their way into an art exhibition in the upscale La Marsa suburb and defaced works they deemed offensive.

    The work that appears to have caused the most fury and polarized Tunisians spelled out the name of God using insects.

    "These artists are attacking Islam, and this is not new. Islam is targeted," said a youth, who gave his name as Ali and had removed his shirt and was preparing to confront police in Ettadamen.

    In a statement released before the protests, Ennahda, the moderate Islamist party that now leads the government, condemned what it described as provocations and insults against religion but urged its own supporters to respond peacefully.

    The violence puts Ennahda in a difficult position.

    While Islamists did not play a major role in the revolution, the struggle over Islam's place in government and society has emerged as the most divisive issue in Tunisian politics, and several clashes have erupted in recent months.

    Salafis want a broader role for religion in the new Tunisia, alarming secular elites who fear they will seek to impose their views and ultimately undermine the nascent democracy.

    Some said the unrest started just two days after al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahiri called on Tunisians to demand the imposition of Muslim religious law, AFP reported.

    Reuters contributed to this report.
