An interesting, though rather inaptly titled, article about, among other things, a trial for blasphemy in Tunisia which has generated enormous controversy. Tunisia’s future, like that of Egypt, appears very uncertain. I also found the comments about the worries of the residents of Tunis interesting. Years ago, I spent several weeks in Tunis working as part of an archeological dig in ancient Carthage. I enjoyed that time in Tunis very much. It is a sophisticated and cosmopolitan sea-side resort and it is unsurprising that its residents would be alarmed about Tunisia’s future. It is the democracy that seems to be what they fear.
