They define themselves as Salafi jihadists, similar to those who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yesterday in hiding or in jail, today they want to hijack the Arab revolutions. From Tunisia to Syria, via Libya and Lebanon, this film uncovers the strategy of radical Islamists who are trying to establish themselves as successors to the deposed dictators..
Kamal REDOUANI was a reporter for RFI from 1996 to 2004. He made more than a hundred radio documentaries and reports from all round the world, then chose to move into television. Recently he made “Retour au Bled” about returning to one’s home country. He was in Tunis when Ben Ali was thrown out and decided to go to meet the young rebels of the Arab world. He made two films about that: “Jeunesse marocaine : l’appel au changement” and “La jeunesse de Bab el Oued”. Then he went to the Turkish- Syrian border and made a film diary for France 3 about the opponents of Bashar al- Assad’s regime, and the portrait of a writer who, by the force of circumstance, has become the revolution’s poet.
