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.

Rest In Peace papa 🤍

Amira

- you think your kids want you to leave them a bank account full of cash but in reality the most valuable thing you can leave behind is love and beautiful memories. I got extremely lucky with this one.

Amira

- heart attacks can happen anytime. Check on your loved ones and if you are a parent and you have children please make your health and your sleep a priority. I wish I was harder on mine...

Amira

- there is no manual about how to deal with the death of a loved one. Even worst when it’s “not expected”. I wish I spent a bit more time thinking about this before it happens. It’s hard to know what to do when you get that call.

Amira

- you will sometimes feel guilty for not having called “that day”, for not having attended “that lunch”. Really invest the time in the people you love or you will regret it deeply.

Amira

- 5 years later the shock and pain is exactly the same. You just learn how to fake it. You live with a piece of you that has been taken away forever.

Amira

- many of your friends went through grief, loosing a parent early will make you enter a warm and sad club, the one for kids who wished for another day.

Amira

- it’s the parents’ job to love their children first. I was so lucky to have a parent who showed us what true love means. Don’t wait for your children to deserve your love, doing so set them up for failure and hurting.

Amira

- one of the best gifts a parent can leave behind is a journal, my father left over 50 years of daily journaling, extreme but oh so amazing.
