secularists versus Islamists

I disagree with this position:  "“We owe our success,” Mr. Marzouki said, “to the fact that we talked to the secularists, saying: ‘Look, all of us come from a very important human rights background, and we are going to fight for civil liberties. But we are not going to fight against Islamists. We don’t want an ideological war between secularists and Islamists.’ ”"  You know who was making this same argument?  The Tuden Party of Iran before Khumayni began his campaign of executions against them.
