Tunisia: Islamic supremacists shouting “Allahu akbar” smash windows of cinema, attack filmgoers over secular film
Islamic supremacists give the film “Neither God nor master” a big thumbs down in their inimitable fashion. Sharia Alert from modern, moderate “Arab Spring” Tunisia: “Islamists attack Tunisia cinema over secular film,” from AP, June 26 (thanks to JCB):
TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) “” A gang of ultraconservative Islamists have attacked a movie theater in downtown Tunis because it was showing a film about secularism.
Note yet again that for AP, Islamic supremacists are “ultraconservative,” and so likewise “ultraconservatives” are those in the West who dare to resist Islamic supremacist encroachment.
Around 100 bearded men shouting “God is great” smashed the windows of Cinema Afrique, where the movie “Neither God nor master” by France-based Tunisian director Nadia Feni was playing on Sunday.
An AP reporter saw eight of them forcing their way inside and attacking filmgoers, including prominent directors, before being apprehended by police.
Tunisia’s former regime ruthlessly cracked down on political Islam. Since its downfall in popular protests, however, Islamists have become more active.
I tried to tell you.
