Journey 1423: to boldly go where no Arab Country has gone before!

The free people of Tunisia chose on the 14th and confirmed on the 23rd their choice of a modern democratic society.

However, while the 14th ushered this new freedom era, democracy remains far beyond voting. It also requires, among others, vigilance and a strong will to defend one's conviction in a civilized manner while respecting others.

We just started our democratic journey and it is worthy of our martyrs and the expectations of our future generations and the true free world.

Today is time to learn from the outcomes of our first democratic step. Empowered with this fresh experience and lessons, we are called to invent a new political paradigm for Tunisia and why not the rest of the World.

Before ending this short and challenging but optimistic blog, I'd like to share with you few poetic words from Khalil Gibran's The Prophet.

The Coming of the Ship:
And now your ship has come, and you must needs go. Deep is your longing for the land of your memories and the dwelling-place of your greater desires; and our love would not bind you nor our needs hold you. Yet this we ask ere you leave us, that you speak to us and give us of your truth. And we will give it unto our children, and they unto their children, and it shall not perish. In your aloneness you have watched with our days, and in your wakefulness you have listened to the weeping and the laughter of our sleep. Now therefore disclose us to ourselves, and tell us all that has been shown you of that which is between birth and death.

And he answered,
People of "Free Tunisia," of what can I speak save of that which is even now moving your souls?

Tunisia Again: 15O Tunisia's Evacuation Day and Globalchange!

Not only did the Tunisian 14th of January initiate a global tsunami of freedom, it is today again showing the way by recalling, while celebrating the evacuation of the last french soldier from its soil, that the power of people's will is stronger than gun's fire.

Today's 15th of October (15O) attest to the far reaching effects of Free Tunisia pure revolution. A Tsunami of peaceful global action engulfing the planet and inspiring free people to unite and speak in one strong voice on behalf of humanity. The first words of a manifesto illustrating this resounding collective voice say:

"On 15 October 2011, united in our diversity, united for global change, we demand global democracy: global governance by the people, for the people. Inspired by our sisters and brothers in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria, Bahrain, New York, Palestine-Israel, Spain and Greece, we too call for a regime change: a global regime change."

This sweeping freedom tsunami, initiated in the land of the free Tunisia, and spreading all over the living planet, will energetically sweep away any malignant seeds should they resist to join the awakening of our planetary collective consciousness.

The coming planetary freedom era is being called aloud by free voices, like roaring drams, from all over the corners of planet Earth. People all over are keeping the flame lit and alive while chanting the chains breaking words of our mighty poets and praying for the blessings of our martyrs that either gave their blood or died awaiting a loaf of bread.

May God bless our mother-ship Earth with gentle winds of change so that it sails swiftly towards calm and serene waters and anchor its destiny to where we all WILL it to go and be for the benefit of all generations of living people and creatures.

Keep it up and your vision will shine sky high, and beyond your borders as it is already swiftly sweeping your neighborhood and beyond! The pages of post-modern history are being engraved in humanity's memory and Free Tunisia are its first engravings.

Trust First! ... the rest will follow.

The unanimous call of the free Tunisians is blatant: NO to old faces!

Despite this crystal clear political position, the politicians "in charge" insist on ignoring it! Moreover and surprisingly, old hidden fists seem to be at work, blocking the circulation of credible information and pulling several strings!

In addition, the members of the transition government keep on insisting on the importance of the protection of the economic system, or repeating promises to secure earlier ones while belittling the great sacrifices of our martyrs and the historic revolution they sparked.

To say the least, this awkward and old-fashioned management of the transition will only aggravate the situation and transform the ongoing chaos into an uncontrollable sociopolitical crisis.

Consequently, and since the members of this transition government are supposed to be political experts and/or nationally renowned academicians, this awkwardness betrays an unspoken agenda!

Finally, the priority is to choose an adequate and trustworthy interim team and gain the soonest people's trust in order to engage in the necessary corrective actions with the full support of the different stakeholders of the Tunisian society.

Last but not least, and as a necessary ingredient to this historic trust building process, it is fundamental to insure that NO Witch-Hunting would result from the withdrawal of the old faces. The free Tunisia’s fair legal system will be entrusted with the mission of legally punishing the culprits within trustworthy law and justice institutions.

Finally, as the entire World is witnessing the unfolding of our unique and historic REVOLUTION, it will also observe and attest to the forgiveness of the peace loving and moderate free-people of Tunisia!

Collectively Securing our Future.

Tunisia is emerging anew as a democratic responsible civilized nation, reborn out of the blood of our God blessed Martyrs.

Nevertheless, our uprising is not over till we positively and actively monitor the on going process of the formation of the new transition government by giving our feedback and suggestions about this undertaking.

Keeping Tunisian people in-the-loop will certainly secure a better transition towards the free and democratic Tunisia for which our martyrs, God bless their souls, gave their lives. Moreover, and most importantly, this collective and participative process will maximize the swift success of our transition and thus irreversibly anchor our country to the democratic world.

However, due to the complexity of the situation; time constraints and limitations of our present legislation and institutional make up, we should all engage in, and monitor, the on going critical process to a workable state of affairs.
Therefore, we should all expect under these circumstances the final choice to be neither perfect nor acceptable to each and every free Tunisian! It is necessary, nonetheless, that this to-be-born transition government work as a team capable of taking us where free Tunisia decided and willed to be.
To achieve this desired outcome, the free people of Tunisia should be in the loop to monitor and align the composition of the transition government with its aspirations, desires and will; for today Power is nothing but by-and-for the people of free Tunisia.
