A good dream or a nightmare?

Reader comment on item: Mohammed Bouazizi, Historical Figure

Submitted by NuritG (United States), Apr 21, 2011 at 02:06

Mohammed Bouazizi may have had freedom on his mind before he set himself on fire in his anguish to make his statement to the world. Mohammed Bouazizi may have dreamt of the betterment of the people on Tunisia.

The big if and the crucial question is, will the Islamists and radical Islamic elements, now eyeing to replace the kleptocrats and autocrats the protester ousted, take over, thus form even worse regimes that will, for sure, take away, indefinitely, the dream of Mohammed Bouazizi and his like to be free and liberated?
