    Tunisia Leader Vows To Protect Country's' Jews

    Good for President Marzouki!

    On a visit to a synagogue that had been bombed 10 years ago, Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki said Tunisia is committed to the security of its Jews and that they are equal citizens under the law.

    Marzouki also said he had invited a group of Jewish school children to visit his office at the Carthage Presidential Palace. The president has recently invited groups of school children to his office as a way of opening the Tunisian presidency to the public following last years revolution.

    Marzouki made his remarks as part of a ceremony to mark the 10-year anniversary of the 2002 Al Qaeda truck bombing attack on the El Ghriba synagogue in Djerba. Twenty-one people were killed in the attack...

    Yes, good of president Marzouki to make the statement. Kudos to him. But even the fact that he has to make such statements tells a story.

    Good. Jews have historically found sanctuary in Muslim Northern Africa from genocidal Europe so its only proper that the area retains a Jewish presence.

    Hello. For some unknown reason, I am unable to open a new thread.
    Anyways, I just wanted to point out the fact that the Beirut synagogue is nearly completely restored.
    Even Hassan Nasrallah , Hezbollah's leader, approved the building of the synagogue.
    Here's an interesting article on it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maghen_Abraham_Synagogue

    hi

    You won't be able to start new threads until you exceed posting a number of posts. I think it maybe 10 posts? But I am not sure. Keep posting additional posts and try to start new threads after each new post. Eventually, when you reach the threshold. You will be able to start new threads.

    Muslims are not exactly innocent bystanders when it comes to genocide against the Jews. Just saying.

    Unfortunately, President Marzouki faces a vote of no confidence, not because of this (or at least not specifically) but due to his remarks on Qatar. As always, you can't please all of the people all of the time. Lets hope he survives that.
