A French councillor of Tunisian origin on Wednesday said he was beaten by devout Muslims in Tunisia because his wife and daughter's clothing were seen as provocative… and they condescend to us about tolerance. Again, why are the media and the political elite carrying water for the most extreme and radical ideology on the face of the earth?
"French councillor beaten by Tunisian extremists" IOL News, August 22, 2012 thanks to David
A French councillor of Tunisian origin on
Wednesday said he was beaten by religious extremists in Tunisia because
his wife and daughter's clothing were seen as provocative.
Jamel Gharbi, a councillor in the
north-western city of Le Mans, said that he and his family were
strolling around the northern coastal Tunisian town of Bizerte August 16
when they came across a group of men with the long beards and tunics of
ultra-conservative Salafi Muslims.
“I saw they were looking at them
(his wife and daughter) with hate because of their summer clothes, even
though there was nothing provocative about them (the clothes),” he was
quoted by the Lemainelibre.fr, a Le Mans news site, as saying.
“They told us we were in an Islamist country and I quickly understood things were going to degenerate,” he said.
“I cried out to my wife and
daughter to run. They then pounced on me and struck me with their fists,
feet and sticks,” he added.
Gharbi, 62, said he had reported the attack to police and cut short his visit to Tunisia.
