Who’re the ‘evil-doers’ behind the so-called ‘Arab Spring’? Who would know better than an Israeli’s deputy foreign minister Ayalon who said on August 10 that the western post-Assad plan calls for the fragmentation of Syria into Alawite, Sunni, Druze and Kurd provinces. He added that a similar fate is awaiting for Lebanon in the near future. Ayalon ruled out the possibility of the emergence of an Arab alliance that would stand in opposition to Israel in the next 10 to 15 years.
Last month, Gabriel M. Scheinmann, a visiting Fellow at the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), admitted that the Zionist entity is in fact the winner of the so-called “Arab Spring”.
Let us visit the birthplace of ‘Arab Spring’, Tunisia – where the pro-Western dictator Ben Ali was replaced by the so-called ‘Islamist’ En-Nahda’ movement. En-Nahda’s leader Rachid Ghannouchi had spent his decade-long exile in Britain, where he ‘dined’ with anti-Muslim crowd. Soon after his party’s victory in the so-called ‘a rare fair democratic election’ – Rachid Ghannouchi paid a secret visit to Washington-based Israel lobby group, the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP). In the meeting Ghannouchi promised his Jewish hosts that En-Nahda would oppose the inclusion of a clause in country’s Constitution to terminate diplomatic relations with the Zionist entity – as demanded by opposition parties and a great majority of Tunisians.
Recently, US House Rules Committee chairman, Israel-Firster David Timothy Dreier visited Tunisia along with six congressmen from both Republican Democratic parties. This was Dreir’s second visit since the start of ‘Arab Spring’ in Tunisia. They met President Moncef Marzouki, Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali and other high government official.
Ghannouchi and the other so-called ‘Islamist’ leaders who came into power in Egypt and Libya as result of Arab Spring – have proven their reputation for duplicity and deception. They say one thing to to the US-Israel lobby groups and another thing to their countrymen. In Tunisia some groups have started protests against the hypocrisy of their Islamist regime. Protests are being held in several Tunisian cities against En-Nahda lead government. The protesters have blamed En-Nahda for the lack of progress in the country. In rsponse En-Nahda leaders have called the protesters ‘enemies of Allah’.
Rashed al-Ghannushi while claiming to set an example for the Arabs struggling to get rid of their corrupt regimes – joined the ‘Axis of Evil’ against the ‘Axis of Resistance’ by allowing western proxy, ‘Friends of Syria‘ to hold its first meeting in Tunisia.
En-Nahda party has turned into a tool of the US-Israel-Saudi ‘Axis of Evil’. Recently, Lebanese Islamic Resistance Hizbullah member, Samir Kuntar, who was imprisoned in Israel for 30 years on false charges and later released as part of a prisoner exchange between Israel and Hizbullah, narrowly escaped being lynched by a group of 500 Salafi thugs armed with swords, batons, knives and other weapons, on his recent visit to Tunisia. Five others were injured, some seriously. Media reports that neither this nor other attacks have been deterred in the slightest by the Interior Ministry which is controlled by a Nahda official. The Salafis justified their attack by recalling Kuntar’s allegiance to Shi’ism (he is a Druze convert) and his support for the Syrian government. Kuntar’s real crime was that two days prior to the incident, he called on En-Nahda leader Rachid al-Ghannouchi, not to re-establish diplomatic relation with the Zionist entity if he was indeed serious about liberating Palestine. Analysts believe that his statement was regarded by some party cadres as a provocation which warranted a response. This is of course over and above the perpetrators of the crime, who are affiliated with Saudi-funded Wahhabi movements in Tunisia.
En-Nahda, Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Syria, and Qatar-funded Salafi/Wahabi in Libya – have no political experience and therefore, have become pawn to western political agenda in the Muslim world. What these Islamists are doing, is to please the West to hold on to their first-time power.
To understand the true nature Tunisian ‘Islamist’ one has to remember how Ghannoushi travels to Washington and visits WINEP, which staunchly advocates the Zionist entity, and makes clear that he does not seek to unite with any Arab state or Palestine and stresses his differences with Iran and the Islamic Revolution and the movement started by the late founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini.
