A Short History of Tunisia

On this page, you will find content we have found to contain useful, revelant and interesting information: news, links, books and Twitter accounts. If you think an important resource is missing, please let us know.

Tunisia is bordered by Algeria to the west and southwest, Libya to the southeast, and the Mediterranean Sea to the north and east. Inhabited by Berber tribes, Phoenicians founded Carthage in the 9th century BC. A century later the Arab Muslim conquest occurred in the region, and the first Ottoman conquest of Tunis took place in 1534. It was later a French protectorate from 1881 until independence in 1956. Leader of the independence movement Habib Ali Bourguiba became President and Zine El Abidine Ben Ali came to power in 1987. Accused of misrule and corruption, he was ousted in 2011 during the Tunisian Revolution. In 2015 the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet won the Nobel Peace Prize for their work in building a peaceful, pluralistic political order in Tunisia. Despite the current political crisis, Tunisia is considered to be the only full democracy in the Arab World.

3 decades ago,Saddam launched a few missiles on #TelAviv. They didn't do much,but many Arabs still remember that moment with pride. It entered the Arab political mythology. This's partly why Hamas & Hezbollah are so popular.They did what not a single Arab army was able to do.

Finally, some movement: members of Congressional Hispanic Caucus sending a letter today to Zuckerberg demanding that the FB reverses a decision to force users off its WhatsApp platform if they don’t agree to expanded data collection—the letter is here: trahan.house.gov/uploadedfile….

I don't want to be in one of these apartment buildings, for sure. But this's what deterrence means. However, boosted by extra nationalism and US weapons and support, the Israeli army won't be deterred. Again and again, they will commit crimes, because their citizens were scared. twitter.com/ELINTNews/stat…

Youssef Cherif

Ok,Hamas bombed civilian infrastructures, & that's wrong morally because civilians will die or get injured. But Hamas doesn't have the means to make precise strikes. Their attacks are how a weak,besieged & desperate people react, & there's no comparison in the harm inflicted.
