While Tunisia has avoided the instability that has threatened to push Egypt back into full-scale contestation, it is clear that tensions are rising and that those tensions are centering on the subject of Islam.
About a month ago, my husband Paul and I were en route to Tunisia, which was largely calm and peaceful, to see what the revolution was like on the ground. In my experience, there is media, and then there is reality.
You certainly do not want to book a trip to Tunisia today or tomorrow. But soon, when order is restored, you will want to visit this remarkable country with its caring, concerned, brave and freedom-loving people.
