    Tunisia refuses protest against Ramadan cafe closure
    Organizers say 27/5 sit-in will go ahead as planned

    TUNIS - The Tunisian interior ministry on Thursday refused to authorize a sit-in planned for May 27 to protest the closing of cafes during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
    The sit-in was planned by a civil rights collective using the hashtag #Mouch Bessif ('Not by Force') and calls for the application of Article 6 of the constitution, which enshrines freedom of religion and conscience. The announcement was made in a statement by the 'Association of Freethinkers', saying that one of the reasons for the refusal was allegedly that the protest would pose a threat to public order and that security forces would be unable to ensure the protection of those taking part in the sit-in. The association said that the interior ministry's decision is ''a clear violation of the constitution and a threat to the freedom of expression and to protest,'' underscoring that ''the interior ministry's role should be limited to protecting participants and not to prohibit the right to protect.'' Thus, the protest would be held on May 27 from 2 PM until 4 PM in front of the Tunisian tourism ministry, a member of another organization told ANSA. The issue of whether or not bars and cafes should be kept open during the holy month of Ramadan.
    No Tunisian law prohibits eating or drinking in public during Ramadan, but a circular issued in 1981 calls for the closing of unauthorized cafes and restaurants and a ban on selling alcohol.

    Interesting. Wonder what impact this is having on bezness? Those victims must be sending a small fortune over to pay for top ups!
    The closures were bought in this year....I thought it was strange, as I knew when I was there, we could go into coffee shops.

    "On Sunday 27 May 2018, Tunisians organised a demonstration in the capital that responded to calls on social networks asking people who werenʹt fasting to defend their right to eat and drink in public during Ramadan. This was in direct response to the archaic edict that the Interior Ministry has this year dusted off and re-implemented, which requires cafes and restaurants to close and penalises those who advocate ignoring the fast in public."

    Must be hitting coffee shops pretty hard too....all their income has gone!

    "There have been unprecedented violations of individual and public rights since Lotfi Brahem became Interior Minister. When he was asked by MPs about these measures that curtail citizensʹ freedoms, the minister replied that "allowing the opening of cafes during the day in Ramadan can be an excuse for extremist groups to foment trouble against the state and to commit terrorist acts, especially given that we usually see a rise in the level of threats from takfiri organisations during this month.”

    They are only allowed to open tourist cafes etc, but they must have a license and cover the windows with newspaper.....could you even imagine sitting in there?!! :D:D

    Khawla Barghouthi jailed for not revealing attack plan

    Khawla Barghouthi admitted failing to alert the authorities to her friend's terrorist plan
    A woman who witnessed her friend preparing to carry out the first female-led terrorist attack in the UK has been jailed for 28 months.

    Khawla Barghouthi also faces deportation to Tunisia after admitting failing to alert the authorities to Rizlaine Boular's plan.

    An Old Bailey judge told Barghouthi, 21, there was no doubt her friend would have gone ahead with the attack.

    Boular, her mother and her sister have all been convicted.

    In April 2017, specialist counter-terrorism armed officers raided Barghouthi's north-west London home, hours after a bugged conversation revealed that her friend Rizlaine Boular was inside and practising wielding a knife for an attack.

    The recordings revealed that Boular was preparing to attack people in the Westminster area, apparently egged on by her younger sister and mother.

    She told Barghouthi that she preferred to attack women or a single man because of the risk she would be overpowered by a group of men - and then the pair laughed at the possibility of the attack being a "flop".

    Barghouthi said: "That would be the worst thing that could ever happen - like you start a terrorist thing and then you stall.

    Mina Dich (left) and her daughter Rizlaine Boular, have both been jailed for terror offences
    Videos from the Isis terrorism group, celebrating other attacks, were also downloaded onto Barghouthi's phone during the hours the two women were together.

    In a statement to the court, Barghouthi said she never believed her friend was actually going to do anything.

    "When I read the transcript I was horrified how it sounds," she said. "What I can say, at the time it was extravagant talk and very stupid fooling around."

    But Judge Mark Dennis QC said: "There was a growing awareness over a number of days of the nature of the attack by Rizlaine Boular.

    "There is no reason, in my view, to doubt that Rizlaine Boular intended to carry out her violent action, even at the cost of her own life."

    Safaa Boular, 18, is the youngest woman in the UK to be convicted of preparing a terrorist attack
    Barghouthi was initially charged with preparing an act of terrorism - but her later plea of guilty to the lesser charge of failing to notify the authorities was accepted by prosecutors.

    Rizlaine Boular and her mother Mina Dich have already been jailed for preparing an act of terrorism.

    Rizlaine Boular's younger sister, Safaa Boular, 18, also convicted, is yet to be sentenced.

    Safaa Boular became the youngest woman in the UK to be convicted of preparing a terrorism attack which had been encouraged by a fighter in Syria.

    :(I doubt they will see the errors of their ways. They look down on us as infidels and sub-humans anyways. The baton will be passed onto someone else as we speak. Maybe I'm just so cynical nowadays about these particular type of critters.:sneaky:

    What kind of mother would encouage her daughters to carry out such an atrocious act. Knowing as well that in all likelihood they would be killed. Beggars belief.

    Unfortunay it is impossible to punish someone who was prepared to die a painful death for their cause. Any time they serve in jail is just time for them to try to brainwash someone else.

    I think it was last year i was in sousse having a walk around .i came across a huge banner that was sprawled around a roundabout. ...not far from one of the police check points .as my arabic script isnt good i didnt take the time to read it, anyway i went back to the inlaws house and saw a photo of it come through on my news feed on facebook i showed the hubby it and asked him to read it for me, i couldnt believe it when he told me there was a meeting to be held it gave a date and time and it was calling for tunisia to become an islamic state, we both did nomore and jump in the car to go and rip it down but it had gone.
    I was so angry not because of the actual banner i was angry because hundreds of tunisians would of seen that , police would of seen that and it was just ignored. Hats off to the one or ones who took it down though

    Tunisia shepherd dies after jihadist attack: ministry
    By AFP

    PUBLISHED: 14:49, 25 June 2018 | UPDATED: 14:49, 25 June 2018




    • A Tunisian shepherd has died from wounds sustained when he was attacked over the weekend by jihadists in the country's mountainous centre, the defence ministry said Monday.

    Mohamed Griri was "attacked by a group of terrorists" on Saturday while grazing his sheep in a closed military zone on Mount Chaambi, in Kasserine, the ministry said.

    The 28-year-old was transferred to a military hospital in Tunis, where he succumbed to his wounds on Sunday night, the ministry said, without providing further details on the assault.

    "He was screaming in pain. He was bashed in the head and his nose was cut off," Griri's brother, who found the wounded shepherd, told Tunisia's private Mosaique FM broadcaster.

    It was not the first time a shepherd has been killed by jihadists in the North African country.

    In 2015, 16-year-old Mabrouk Soltani was beheaded in nearby Mount Mghilla by a group of extremists as his 14-year-old cousin watched.

    The Tunisian branch of the Islamic State group, Jund al-Khilafa (Soldiers of the Caliphate), claimed responsibility, accusing the boy of informing the army on their movements.

    Two years later, Mabrouk's brother Khalifa was abducted and killed in the same area, in an attack also claimed by IS.

    Mount Chaambi, near Tunisia's border with Algeria, is also a stronghold of the Al-Qaeda-linked Okba Ibn Nafaa Battalion.

    Since its 2011 revolution, Tunisia has experienced an increase in jihadist attacks that have killed dozens of members of the security forces and at least 59 foreign tourists.

    The country has been under a state of emergency since November 2015, when an IS-claimed suicide bombing in Tunis killed 12 presidential guards.

    This is absolutely horrendous! It’s time this was broadcast to foreign countries. People need to be warned! It’s very dangerous! Please forward this thread to your country’s Immigration offices, media, and travel companies! I will do the same! Since greed rules that country, a loss of tourists cash may be the only way to get the government’s attention! MAKE BEZNESS A CRIME and secure the borders.....no terrorists in and no RATS out!!!!

    Even when they get to the “promised lands with the streets paved of gold”, they are still NOT happy. Something is wrong with their brains and their thinking! Use people, marry in the blink of an eye, have kids and never bonding to them or even loving them, hurting and abusing foreign women, wanting to kill as many people as possible!!! Time to ban entry to Tunisians who are with women for only short times! Stop rats!!! Stop wire transfers into Tunisia!!!!
