Tunisia is today a country that appears to be open for a spiritual as well as political transition. Tunisia received its independence from France in 1956, but future rulers were authoritarian and corrupt, hence there has been instability in this country of 10.7 million, 98% of whom are Arab and Sunni Muslim (Bishku, 2013, 57). There are four "distinct ethnic groups" in Tunisia: Arabs, Berbers, "dark-skinned people of sub-Saharan origin, and Jews" (Ennafaa, et. Al, 2006).
