Tunisians know their election was rigged.

Tunisia WAS a wildly successful country.

The former president, Ben Ali, made Tunisia peaceful, moderate and prosperous.

Many Tunisians are not happy that:

1. The CIA toppled Ben Ali

2. And the fascist CIA has now rigged the October 2011 elections in order to put its fascist Islamist friends into power.

The fascist CIA has put its fascist Islamist pals into power in Tunisia.

If you are a mafia drugs baron, Tunisia could be a good place to invest, or a good place for a holiday.

Maghreb Confidential reports ''contacts at the highest level" by Hamadi Jebali during his recent visit to Washington. Jebali reportedly met Joe Libermann.

In the Tunisian elections of October 2011:

40% of those eligible to vote did not bother to vote.

The turnout was 60%.

(58% according to some sources)

75% of those who voted did not vote for the 'CIA's' Islamist Ennahda Party.

The 'CIA's' Islamist Ennahda Party got around 25% of the vote.

But, the 'CIA's' Islamist Ennahda Party will get at least 41% of the seats in the assembly.

Ennahda are the winners.

The 75% who did not vote for Ennahda wasted their votes on a vast number of tiny little parties.

"Because of a system of strict proportional representation, exacerbated by what in some districts were as many as 100 choices on ballots, a third or so of all votes cast actually counted for nothing, having been wasted on small local lists that failed to garner enough numbers to return a seat...

"Failure to unite cost Ennahda's secular opponents what should have been a clear majority."

(Tunisia's general election - Islamists to the fore)

This has led to protests.

"In the town of Sidi Bouzid, the birthplace of the uprising that ousted Zine el Abidine Ben Ali, more than 2,000 young people marched on the headquarters of the Ennahda party and pelted security forces with stones after they learned that votes for an opposition party had been discounted.

"Witnesses said the group broke doors and windows of the Ennahda building and set alight tyres on the town's main road. The mayor's office was also set on fire. Reports say police used tear gas to disperse the crowd.

"A similar protest was under way in the town of Regueb, some 30 miles from Sidi Bouzid, where a gunshot was fired at the local Ennahda offices."

According to The Economist (Tunisia's general election Islamists to the fore):

Many liberal Tunisians mourn the end of an era.

"Given a sagging economy and a well of social grievances, the immediate test will be hard. Once a new constitution is in place, and elections are held next year for a proper parliament, Nahda may start to look a bit less shiny."
