"Ghannouchi Assassin"

That was the cry at the cemetery in Tunisia.

Wouldn't it be something if Rachid Ghannouchi from now on would have to worry  that a Tunisian, determined to evenge not just for Chikri Belaid, but for other secularists killed,  might  now kill him? From now on, wouldn't it be something if the man who had gone into exile in London and then returned triumphantly to Tunisia to plot and scheme (he was caught on tape urging his followers to have patience, as Ennahda apparatchiks determinedly infiltrated into all the areas of Tunisian politicial, economic, and social influence), would now find that he couldn't walk the streets, he couldn't address crowds, he couldn't allow anyone to suddenly come up to  greet him or to hand him a gift or a petition, because of fear that he, Rachid Ghannouchi, would be killed because he is regarded by many as an assassin, and by many Tunisians is now Wanted For Murder?
