Per the Reuters news flash I just received:

Islamists claim win in Tunisia’s Arab Spring vote

By Tarek Amara and Andrew Hammond

TUNIS (Reuters) – Moderate Islamists on Monday claimed victory in Tunisia’s first democratic election, sending a message to other states in the region that long-sidelined Islamists are challenging for power after the “Arab Spring”

Unfortunately with protests expanding in Morocco and terrorist attacks increasing in Algeria from Al Qaeda, this will not end well for the future of European and U.S. foreign policy, a la Iran in 1979.

Way to go BJC!
