It’s as if the scene is repeating itself. It’s as if we’re at the beginning of media chaos and flaring Brotherhood incitement; the season of the Arab Spring or Arab chaos.
In the past two days, Rached Ghannouchi spoke before his supporters from the Tunisian Ennahda Movement, the special Tunisian version of the Brotherhood. Ghannouchi likened the consequences of Jamal Khashoggi’s murder to the atmosphere which prevailed in Tunisia after Mohamed Bouazizi set himself on fire in December 2010 sparking a revolution in Tunisia.
Speaking before his movement’s cadres, Ghannouchi said: “The global political atmosphere currently resembles the tragic scene which was witnessed in 2010 when young man Bouazizi set himself on fire and when he brought about all that regional and international sympathy and highlighted the circumstances that brought him into that scene.”
His statements are clear and the investment is clearer. It’s by the same party via the same approach and aims to serve the same purpose. A shocking death is being fully exploited and used to invoke feelings of anger in politics and to gain supporters and harm rivals. The rivals here, according to the Muslim Brotherhood, are the Arab countries that reject their project.
Due to the pressure which Ennahda Movement is feeling on the internal and external levels, its leader is trying to ignite the spark again using the Jamal Khashoggi caseMashari Althaydi
