Weil sie müssen, nicht weil sie wollen

Ghannouchi pretends to be moderate for two reasons. First, most Tunisians are moderates who are frightened by violent radical Islam. If Ghannouchi’s party is to succeed, he can’t go around telling people he wants their mothers, daughters, and sisters to strap on suicide vests.

He also has to stop talking like that if he doesn’t want to be treated as a pariah by the civilized world.

I met a few Ennahda people in Tunis. They do come across as moderates compared with their counterparts in Egypt. They do this not because they want to, but because they have to. That’s a good enough reason for guarded optimism, but let us not kid ourselves.
