Hundreds of protesters took to Tunis’ Habib Bourguiba Street on Sunday to condemn internal efforts at normalising relations with Israel as the city hosts the 30th Arab League Summit.

Protesters carried banners reading “no normalisation deals on Tunisian territory” and “liberation of Palestine is the duty of the nation” as security forces blocked them from gaining access to streets close to the summit’s venue.

Several parties and political figures have been trying to normalise relations with Israel, a country often shunned by the Arab world over its role in occupying Palestine.

This year’s Summit brings together high level officials from 21 Arab countries in order to discuss the region’s biggest challenges.

Leaders are expected to mainly discuss the repercussions of the US’s decision to recognise Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

Ah, these aren’t Tunisians! Why? In Tunisia, administrative, commercial and educational language is… FRENCH! And most of Tunisians will rather speak Amazight (Berber)

No footage from the end of the protest? Usually, Tunisian police do not appreciate Fakestinian refugees to create troubles. My 2 cents cops ended bludgeoning and using tear gas

Berbers don’t give a fück about Fakestine, moreover, they want KSA to send back the gold former prez Ben Ali stole b4 moving there, so the Arab-League BS, 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

In fact, since Qatar, KSA, Turkey are funding the shitlamists, the trend all over Maghreb is the rejection of Arabic language, it’s more violent in Morocco, since…

French is not the admin/school language. So people opt for Amazigh as 1st language and French a 2nd while the king is an Arab from the Alaoui descent.

Amazigh was only accepted as a national language in 2011 after gigantic violent protests, nevertheless, everybody speaks French too…

Utter nonsense again, secular mouvement are fighting back basically everywhere, and are provoking a nascent reculturization towards Arabic national pride that also tends to fact back against Islamist mouvements, namely in Tunisia itself. And also visible in Algeria nowadays with Bouteflika’s overthrow by Hijab-wearing women as much as those without it, singing victory in one voice side by side for a better social future. You are going nuts. In Lybia , Russia-supported Haftar has made a goal of his life to wipe out anything islamist in the name of a proud Arab renaissance for the country and is garnering MASSIVE… Read more »

Wrong and gone. As of this day no more than 60% of the population even speaks or read french anymore. Are you stuck in time or something ? Ever since the 80s and much more in the 90s, Arabic has taken a rapidly growing presence among each and every single ones of the entities you mentioned and as become official in schools and institutions. The official language is Arabic, it stopped being french-only after the Protectorate ended, for Christ sake get your facts right. Which school did study such nonsense in ? French colonial school of the 40s ?

Language is one thing. (Geo)political views and the underlying ideologies and sympathies are completely another. You are mixing everything trying to reach a non-existent conclusion.

In fact, most of Tunisians don’t consider themselves as Arabs, they’re likely to feel insulted if called so. You’re likely ending being told “We’ve been invaded by Arabs…

We’re Berbers” and except bigots, Tunisians don’t speak Arab at all and usually reject it…

Berbers constitute the populations of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Mauritania, northern Mali, northern Niger, and a small part of western Egyptcomment image

Lies. Berbers are “one part” of these populations. In the caser of multi-echnic Tunisia, there are also Egyptians, Maltese, ancient Arabs with roots in both Medieval Arabia and what is now known as Yemen, and also a small bit of Phoenicians within their main ethnical components. There is reality, and there are you invariably incorrect assessment of it. Get back to school, act IV for this week alone.

Utterly wrong ! Stop spreading lies here and cheap, easily debunkable propaganda about anything you can. As you know I’m french too, and I’m deeply involved in the Tunisian diaspora, very unlucky for you, and things are, as usual by contrast to your many simplist arbitrary assertions, quite more complicated and nuanced than that. Most Tunisians indeed call for a cultural and linguistic distinction from a pure, generic “Arab” perception from the outside world (just as Persians do, even though in their case, the gap is wider since they aren’t even semites but Indo-Europeans) and so despite the use of… Read more »

Not near as much as Algeria or Morocco. Tunisia was a Protectorate, and not a colony. That is why their institutions and global political conscience are more advanced than their neighbors, since they did not live under the french colonial thumb that prevented them from maturing as quickly as they should have. Many Tunisians don’t even speak french. I can tell you have never gone there for real.
