Islamic re-emergence Arab Spring

To understand Islamic re-emergence another theme is the recent Arab Spring. Recent few months are described as the second face of Arab resurgence. For Jennifer Basselgia, “Some trends of the recent Arab uprisings are already apparent, including the idealist and fundamental Islamic political entities that have gained significant status as newly “liberated” people vote them into power.”[1] Islamically motivated political parties, for instance Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Islamist Justice and Development Party in Morocco, Ennanda Movement in Tunisia are in the dominant position in respective countries.Most recently Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Morsi has been elected as the president of Egypt. National Transitional Council (NTC), the de facto administration of Libya puts forward a constitution that declares Libya as democracy with Islamic state religion. More specifically it is being designing as an Islamic democracy. These transitions of Arab world are showing a trend towards Islamization of their administration and other forms of politics.
