enticing not yet married couples to spend valentine's day with an encouraging mothers to breastfeed during a baptism service the sistine chapel. baptizing a single mothers baby. becoming known as the man opening the turks distillers cia to those who have never even liked it before many feel a kind unique and intense you're watching and dance. lol welcome to the entry here on fostering kept well it's being hailed as angry or success story in an arab region that's otherwise rife with war and conflict tunisia is adoption of the new constitution one that in shrines democratic freedoms separation of powers even women's rights. it's being held up as a model of what politics by consensus and compromise can read. but the picture of course is far gloomy or elsewhere we look in egypt syria libya the road to transition in those places has seemed at
6:46 am
times to be are dangerously off course my guest today is that david pollack that thanks for being here sure your e a senior fellow at the washington institute estimates suggest based in washington d c again asked for near east policy you've also served in state department are you an advisor on democracy reform issues women's right across the region u s africa tonight yes that is the middle east middle east. i wanna start with that success story i just mentioned are too nice to be a bit past the constitution. with a lot of these democratic freedoms hardwired into the competition and eat it by all of them getting together e islam as the secularist the liberals leftists. how typical that often even have the two unknown else's been able to in the region. that is true it hasn't worked in the country at least monday and i think. and at least not in such a peaceful noon constitutional way with a cruise or a civil war is over or mass violence and. i think
6:47 am
the reason is. team is ironically it's precisely because tunisian society. it is divided. musicians that every party. whether is this mama's or the secularists whether it was people who are. carry overs from the old regime or crc(me revolution it was. youth were veterans of the political opposition in tunisia. everybody realizes the nobody could take everything for themselves. everybody had to compromise because nobody can claim to be. the one party or the one point of view that was dominant but david did help me out here it's the same scenario in egypt is it not you have a society that's divided on the one and between secularists leftists liberals and dad his
6:48 am
lobbyists and yet they can't seem to get along the route but here's what happened i was the winner takes all the chanting not into it the reason i think is the in tunisia the secular are. elements of society and politics were very well organized. and in egypt there are very disorganized it's true that in egypt there are also at least half maybe more of the society. but there are fragmented and. very new to the political game and in tunisia. by contrast. you have a divided society you have been organized islamic point of view and political party. but you also have an organist. secular liberal point of view in a polluted an educated guess. but here i think the key thing is that
6:49 am
you have any for example the labor movement in tunisia that was national in scope that was independent of the government. it was very disciplined. and was able to play a role in an organized way. you have a political opposition. that was. able to mobilize itself around. in other parties that were rifles to the islamic party so in egypt in the first election because the secularists than the liberals and the non fundamentalists were so disorganized and fragmented the muslim brotherhood and the solid fees. one seventy five percent and finally got the power you can envelop they ran roughshod over all we can do it ourselves we don't need to compromise in tunisia the islamic equivalent of the muslim
6:50 am
brotherhood been on the party only won forty percent and they knew that they had no choice but to combine again at the right just go about their assured that the teaching is looking over eighty chipped in seeing what's going on and he said that's not gonna happen just that it's not that that's true. the tunisian news didn't want chaos. and they didn't want dictatorship whether islamic or military or any of the car and then also they didn't want even though it's probably unrealistic in tunisia and they didn't want a military coup. they didn't want the military to have to try to intervene in one else to see it you know that in general in tunisia on a new women's rights you may use the youtube advised a lot when you're working for me to stay two hundred thousand take issue with us the tunisian seem to have gotten a balance right on that one is well on women's right to be stuck it on paper right now it is and why why have they been on the us's worded to take it for what
6:51 am
you like and so to speak with regard to gender equality than the other countries in the region. tunisia. enjoy is a long tradition of women's empowerment. and it's true the this was achieved in an autocratic way. under a political system first thunderbird cuba under been only in tunisia for two generations who are not democrats who are not. open to political competition. but they wore on women's issues they were. i agree i think we can use the word unlike me they were modern they were progressive on that issue and that tradition has paid off. it has produced the large community of very well educated and very professional. we acted very politically active and very self confident women in tunisia who will simply not
6:52 am
allow the kind of abuses that we've seen even in egypt where the revolution actually turned against women. i liked it too. moving on a little bit. i'm not off the success story we were talking before the show. he's wrapped israeli palestinian peace process if you wanna call it that read you wanna call it but if you are telling me that you actually say that the one sign of hope here is that they are having serious talks. that's not the impression every right to be my tapes told andrew that we stand. yes i i i do think that the general impression is probably wrong and we don't know for sure because the talks are being kept so secret but to me that's a good sign that means the both parties. they are trying to come to grips with the really tough issues and they know that the group have a very hard time doing that if there are leaks if there is . cupe behind the scenes is more progress
6:53 am
and we're hearing that i can i do think so and i think. as best i can tell the progress is limited. but a sign that they're making some progress over these dealing directly with the hard issues and not just wasting time. a sign of that is that the hardliners on both sides are starting to get nervous and you can see that they're starting to protest so that for example in his rule. when primus or netanyahu said something that he meant in a conciliatory way about the settlements and settlers. one of his own cabinet ministers publicly said that that this was crazy and eighty is an agreement between them last week i take a hardline its name this as we say we have to do i know you're speaking your constituents. i'll speak to my no i don't think so but don't think this is my agreement. i think this is a junior is inching genuinely genuine spirit and you have
6:54 am
the israeli minister of defense giving up publicly um and calling the settler vigilantes who do these price tag and taxes they're called the israeli minister of defence stood up publicly and said that these people are jewish terrorists and they're every bit as bad as suicide bombers. if the palestinians the palestinian prime minister or president. we're willing to say something like that publicly about his extremists. and to stop calling terrorists heroes and start calling them terrorists on his side. then i think we'd know for sure that something was really happening and then add a new tie up with syria. i want because i i'd be remiss if i can ask you to geneva to read the latest round of peace talks of a joke. i may be totally manipulated by shire side is is this prime progress so fleeting and so has attained that it's not going and really well last jerome. i think that these
6:55 am
talks have achieved nothing i wouldn't call it a joke because it's a sad and i would call it getting some flat iron i said joe absolutely and totally undecided is as soon as i sat on on both sides. i don't think so and i think that what's going on is as you said correctly the asa is playing for time is using these talks. as a cover for tactical games that he's planning to try and divide the opposition to try and embarrass. the opposition's so called supporters like i'm sorry to say my own countrymen in government it states and european governments and others who say that they support the syrian opposition but aren't arguing remote and very final question we should david you know a few months back you believe the un should renew its non lethal aid to non its opposition
6:56 am
you believe they exist where are. i do believe that exist in the world to the exits but i think that contrary to the sensational reports that you often hear about the is to also do exist and syria it's the mom extreme elements that are still a large majority of the opposition with its three syrian army. or most of the parties that are part of the islamic front which is islamic. that is not extreme in many cases is not eat his life yet cia and other groups of the civil opposition the civilian side of the opposition in places like aleppo where half the city the biggest concern is controlled by opposition but non on what i believe without id also just throw out the suggestion that perhaps in light of what constitutes moderate opposition is shifting a little bit more towards the this camp a year from the us
6:57 am
with the i r a i wouldn't say that i think the what we've seen is that the us and the country is in the media are focused too much on the is an on and off on everybody on everyone else did it all fortunate enough to leave it there perhaps a slightly positive note. a college senior fellow at the washington institute for near east policy based in washington based here in paris that without the cna very much are you a broad range of issues across the region. watching it easier on us than that. i know. moon. i them. lynn. and all. i do. i am. i can. all
