Islamic Caliphate Closer than Ever?

Ad Feedback

Tunisia's Islamist Ennahda party is claiming victory in the nation's first elections since the Arab Spring uprisings.

"This is an historic moment," Zeinab Omri, a young woman in a hijab, or Islamic head scarf, outside the Ennahda headquarters told Reuters.

"No one can doubt this result. This result shows very clearly that the Tunisian people is a people attached to its Islamic identity," she said.

As the Islamic party prepares to lead a coalition government, many fear they will overturn Tunisia's progressive legislation on women and families in favor of Sharia law.

CBN Terrorism Analyst Erick Stakelbeck said an Islamic party victory and Libya's embrace of Islamic Sharia law mark a turning point in the region.

Stakelbeck talked more about why he believes an Islamic caliphate is closer than ever, on CBN News Channel Morning News, Oct. 25.
