This took place in “moderate” Tunisia. The people are demonstrating against the government, and so they firebomb a Jewish school. What does the Jewish school have to do with the government? Nothing. But Islamic Jew-hatred — it’s in the quran. If there is a problem, it must be the Jews’ fault. Who else?
Once again, an illusion of a moderate Islam is unmosqued. And it is ugly. Why do civilized men tolerate this barbarity? Why do civilized men walk on eggshells for fear of insulting savages, as if they had human sensibilities? They don’t, and we’d be wise to buck up and fight this gruesome fight. We will have to.
Instead, the media quislings allow Islamic supremacists and stealth jihadists to smear, defame and libel those who challenge jihad and dare to speak the truth about the most radical and extreme ideology on the face of the earth. To what end?
“Protests hit Tunisia for third night as PM warns of clampdown,” by Tarek Amara and Ulf Laessing, Reuters, January 10, 2018:
TUNIS (Reuters) – Tunisian demonstrators defied the threat of a security clampdown on Wednesday as they spilled onto the streets of the capital and at least four other towns for a third night of violent protest fuelled by economic hardship.
Police fired teargas to disperse crowds in Tunis and in Tebourba, a small town nearby where one protestor was killed in Monday, witnesses said.
Since starting with one small protest on Sunday – just days before the 7th anniversary of the Arab Spring movement that convulsed North Africa and the Middle East in 2011 – the demonstrations have spread across much of the country….
Late on Tuesday, clashes erupted in more than 20 towns, as protesters attacked police stations and government buildings and torched cars, also hurling petrol bombs at a Jewish school on the southern tourist island of Djerba.
About 50 policemen were wounded in that violence and 237 people were arrested, including two Islamists, said interior ministry spokesman Khelifa Chibani….
The previous day, petrol bombs were hurled at a Jewish school on the southern tourist island of Djerba, home to an ancient Jewish community.
There were no protests in Djerba itself, but locals said unknown assailants had exploited the fact that there was a reduced security presence as police were busy elsewhere.
“Unknown people took the opportunity of the protests and threw Molotov cocktails into the lobby of (the)… school,” the head of the local Jewish community, Perez Trabelsi, told Reuters.
Jews have lived for over 2,000 years in mainly Muslim Tunisia, where Islamists, secular groups and labour unions have since 2011 argued over what direction the country should take.
Djerba is home to Africa’s oldest synagogue, which was hit by al Qaeda-linked militants in 2002 in a truck bomb attack that killed 21 people including Western tourists.

Among the hundreds arrested on Tuesday were two radical Islamists who had helped storm a police station in Nefza town, the interior ministry spokesman said. In Tunis, a crowd stormed a Carrefour market….
