Good chance Tunisia would follow Iranian example!!!

Well the same thing could be said about Turkey as you are saying about Tunisia. After so many decades of absence of Islam in the government, there is resurgence of Islamists, Muslims in the government at present. Turkey is ever increasingly moving towards a governance like that of Iran. It is a lot easier for Islamists to take over in Tunisia after the present turmoil. Check today's NYTimes story:

Education does not make any difference to Muslims. They follow their religion as prescribed in Quran and sooner or later they always revert back to Islamic governance!!!
