Tunisia: Islamic supremacists murder secular politician

Note that the Islamic supremacist group is called the Association for the Protection of the Revolution. The group thereby reveals that they have none of the Western illusions about the nature of the “Arab Spring,” and never did. They don’t think it was a wonderful outpouring of democracy and pluralism that was “hijacked” by pro-Sharia forces; they know that it was a pro-Sharia, Islamic supremacist movement all along. And now they’re “protecting” it by murdering their enemies.
