"The Age of Islamism" Has Arrived...Officially
The Arab Spring” is now officially over -Barry Rubin, PhD [pictured]
It is officially over because Tunisia, whose revolution started the whole thing, has fallen apart. Tunisia's electoral democracy was as much a failure as Egypt’s. The governing Islamist party failed.
Egypt had a coup; Libya has the growing power of radical Islamist militias. It’s over; it didn’t work; democracy failed.
Now comes the Age of Islamism not the Age of Democracy.
