About That “Moderate” Islamist Party That Won the Tunisian Elections…Yeah, Its Leader Wants to a New Caliphate
The mask is coming off. The Secretary-General of the Ennahda Party that won 40% of the vote in Tunisia’s elections is starting to show his true face. Hamadi Jbeli, Ennahda’s nominee for the premiership, has just said “We are in the sixth caliphate, God willing.”
The director of his office then sought to clarify by saying Jbeli was talking about “good governance” and “not an Islamic state.” Riiight…..
He further said that “we shall set forth with God’s help to conquer Jerusalem.” Ennahda also recently invited a representative of Hamas to visit, who said, “The liberation of Tunisia, will, Allah willing, bring about the liberation of Jerusalem.” That statement was not condemned or clarified by Ennahda.
But don’t worry. They only support Hamas’ terrorism, not Al-Qaeda’s, so they are moderate and friendly, right?
