The Tundra Tabloids has said repeatedly that you are not to confuse real aspirations for normal self rule with what’s taking place in Tunisia and Egypt. They couldn’t care less for their minorities, this is nothing more than tyranny of the majority. So it’s open season on the Jews once again. KGS

Worshippers visit the Ghriba synagogue in Djerba, southern Tunisia
Synagogue torched in Tunisia: Jewish leader
(AFP) – 3 hours ago
TUNIS — Arsonists set fire to a synagogue in the southern Gabes region of Tunisia, a leader of the local Jewish community said Tuesday.
“Someone set fire to the synagogue on Monday night and the Torah scrolls were burned,” Trabelsi Perez told AFP, criticising the lack of action by the security services to stop the attack.
“What astonished me was that there were police not far from the synagogue,” added Perez, who is also head of the Ghriba synagogue on the island of Djerba, the oldest synagogue in Africa.
Twenty-one people were killed, including 16 European tourists, when Al-Qaeda bombers attacked Ghriba in April 2002.
I read an article the other day that under Ben Ali they were doing well, but that they were afraid to be attacked and see what happens: a synagogue is torched.
A few months ago I saw a documentary about the Jews in Tunis. They had to be protected, but at least they got protection. It seems that all of this is coming to an end.
Can you please update your post and check the story again? The story was corrected by AFP and it was confirmed that no one touched any synagogue in Tunisia.
Please stop freaking out, I don’t recall that Muslim Tunisians have ever attacked any Jewish Tunisians. There was one horrible incident claimed by Al Qaida back in 2002, same shit that happens everywhere.
As far as I can tell, other big news organizations are reporting the same thing. If you have a clear substantiated accounting of what took place, or what didn’t take place, please send it my way.
