Abstract : On June 29, 1992, Algerian President Mohammed Boudiaf was addressing a crowd in the coastal city of Annaba. As he raised his hand to emphasize his point and said, 'We are all going to die.' he was struck down by a militant Muslim assassin's bullet. This incident highlighted the ongoing struggle between the Islamic movement in Algeria and the country's relatively secular government. Throughout the Muslim world a resurgence in Islamic political and religious movements has taken place over the past two decades. The 1979 Iranian Revolution and the establishment of an Islamic Republic epitomized this trend and, perhaps, has fueled other Islamic movements. Across Muslim North Africa, the governments of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Egypt have been struggling to deal with this Islamic resurgence
