No, it isn’t surprising that an-Nahda has agreed to extradite former Libyan Prime Minister, Baghdadi Mahmoudi, to Libyan authorities, aka, “rats”. What else does one expect from the new Amerikan Islam? This article may be a few months old but it puts things in context:
“A statement made by Rachid Ghannouchi, leader of the Tunisian political party al-Nahda, to Voice of Israel radio at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, has caused a media uproar in Tunisia that is still ongoing.
This has occurred at a time when many political parties, associations, and non-governmental organizations are demanding that the new Tunisian constitution include a section clearly criminalizing normalization with Israel….Ghannouchi had already told a US magazine, The Weekly Standard, that the new Tunisian constitution will not entail a clause that condemns Israel. He even assured the magazine that the document signed by several parties and associations – as well as political, civil society, and civil rights figures – is a meaningless document….He also made a statement calling for closure the Syrian Embassy in Tunisia and expelling the ambassador. While in Washington he also said that Saudi Arabia is “threatened” by the revolutions of the Arab Spring.”
