The Salafists shouldn't move to the middle east THE TUNISIAN PEOPLE need to grow a pair of you know what and start FIGHTING BACK instead of allowing these people to terrorize them. Those five people who were wounded were probably wounded because they were too afraid to fight those guys back and put them in their place.

Damon, it is not easy to fight back when hundreds of fanatic criminals are coming with swords in their hands to attack you. Especially if you have not done anything and have nothing in your hand to fight with.

The police or army should stop the Salafist criminals. If not, there will be more and more people who will get weapons in their hands to defend themselves, and there will be a civil war in Tunisia.

Tunisians are far more westernized to allow bearded terrorists to rule. Tunisian women love fashion, Italian sunglasses, blue jeans and nice clothes. Young Tunisians watch western media, American movies and have good mobile phones. They are absolutely not interested in the violent medieval stupidity of Islamists.

Yes the young tunisians have all these things but are not ready to fight to keep them....they are sitting in cafe's drinking coffee and moaning but doing nothing while this group grows and grows....No you cant fight when there is a lot of them but you can go in the hundreds outside the government offices and protest.....the government is backing these salifast people that is true. however they can still be pressured....right not there are MILLIONS who are not Salifast which are still in their thousands so there is no chance....

But they will do nothing they are lazy and somehow think the problem will go away.

Wallah,

Who knows why, while reading your comment I could perfectly visualize young Tunisians with their touch-screen mobile phones, sitting in a café and doing nothing to protect their freedoms :)

I was there recently and that is exactly what they are doing.....sad but true like they are waiting for someone else to clean up for them.
