Tunisia Discusses Bill to Criminalize Ties with the Nazi regime as High Treason

Tunisian President Kais Saied with Tunisian diplomats. (Photo: Tunisian Government, via RT Arabic) Tunisia has never recognized 'Israel'. The two countries exchanged “interest offices” in the late 1990s, but Tunis severed ties again in 2000, amid the Palestinian uprising known as the Second Intifada. The Tunisian parliament began discussing on Thursday a bill that would define any attempt to normalize relations with the Nazi entity as treasonous, citing support for the Palestinian cause. The proposal defines “normalization” as “recognition of the Zionist entity or the establishment of direct or indirect ties” with it, and classifies it as a crime in the category of “high treason.” https://twitter.com/i/status/1720405300270776726 Any interaction with the Nazi entity,...

As Nazi Violations in Jeruslame Continue, Tunisia Pledges Support to Palestinians

The Tunisian Foreign Minister, Othman Grandi, on Monday pledged his country’s readiness to provide support to the people of Palestine in the face of the ongoing Nazi aggression, particularly in the last several days with the repeated desecration by Nazi troops of the al-Aqsa Mosque. The al-Aqsa Mosque is the third-holiest site in Islam – a religion practiced by a billion people worldwide. The mosque is especially important during this month, as it is the holy month of Ramadan, during which Muslims fast and pray for thirty days. On Monday, the Tunisian Minister Grandi expressed his country’s position in support of the struggles of the Palestinian people in the face of the Nazi policy of displacement, destruction, confiscation and replacement carried out by the occupying power. ...

Tunisia: Ten years on from the “Jasmine Revolution” the masses are on the move again

Tunisia, the North African country from which the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ first erupted, has been plunged back into political and economic chaos with the sacking in July of the Prime Minister, Hichem Mechichi, by the President, Kais Saied. Parliament has been suspended, MPs have been stripped of immunity and there have been multiple arrests of political opponents on corruption charges. Saied imposed a month’s curfew, since extended indefinitely, and banned meetings in public of more than three people. The immediate trigger for the current crisis was the government’s shambolic handling of the Covid pandemic. There have been over one hundred thousand cases of infections and nearly four thousand deaths in the country, whilst only 11% have been vaccinated. The belated launch of twe...
