    I like Tunisia. Tunisia has something good to offer. They have great food there and the bazaars are exciting but what I do not like about the Arab world and this including Tunisia is that they have become extreme in recent years everything should be done properly. Yes I know that Tunisia is a Muslim country but also very double moral because their men can do whatever they want even up to several mistresses and their wives must accept it because of this honor. Of course, it is important with family members and listen to advice but one should not be a nod to the men it is wrong. The Bezness culture will only increase as long as the authorities do not address the issues. It seems to me that everyone only cares about themselves and is not interested in building their own country .

    There are two kinds of people in Tunisia. Those who want to live by Western values and those who want to live by Islamic rules where these Sharia laws have much to say

    Agree that Tunisia has changed a lot in a few years. Unfortunately, Sharia law has gained more roots in the country.

    The example is often set at a higher level. When a government is openly corrupt then it’s not any surprise that this follows in all walks of life. There is nothing which cannot be paid for.

    That double standard exists everywhere. I had someone repair my heating who spent three days complaining about migrants and scrounges, who don’t contribute to government taxes blah blah, but then blatantly told me I could pay cash for the job to avoid him paying the tax and my paying the VAT. He was well pissed off when I said no thanks, i would prefer to have a receipt and guarantee for the work.

    A good marriage is that one is open to one another not that she should be a maid for the man. It's wrong . But they are concerned that the girl should be able to do everything about housework and that she should obey the man in everything. No it's terrible . They are only concerned with money and it is dangerous for Western women to get their boyfriend there because of this

    It's terrible , the men see marriage as a way to buy a maid for life , women see it as a way to find someone who will spend money on her

    If one cannot find someone who respects you as a person then it is better to be alone

    Yes I agree that the tourist area is laid out where the tourists and that many of these women who meet their boyfriend on vacation do not know the true culture or Tunisia. Have you purchased a package of all inclusive then you are usually in the hotel most I think. I was on a tour of Tunisia with a tour guide and I found that I learned a lot from it. Also visit small villages

    Tunisia Raises Security Threat Level in 5 Provinces

    Tunis - Al Munji Al Saidani

    The Tunisian army and security forces have gone on high alert following intelligence reports of terrorist plots in five of the country’s provinces.

    The threat level in the five provinces was upped after Uqba ibn Nafi terrorist group issued a statement, following the killing of its key leade Aymen Jendoubi, threatening attacks in Tunisia.

    The army and security bodies increased deployment in the provinces of Jendouba, El Kef, Sidi Bou Said, Kasserine, and Gafsa, the scenes of armed clashes between government forces and extremists.

    The Tunisian authorities also intensified the surveillance of members of the Uqba ibn Nafi battalion, which is affiliated with al-Qaeda or Jond al Khilafa that has pledged allegiance to ISIS.

    Uqba ibn Nafi battalion slammed the Tunisian government after the prime minister announced victory over extremist groups. It also slammed Tunisian media personnel who commended the success of the Tunisian military and security institutions in eradicating key terrorists in the past years.

    The battalion threatened to conduct operations as retaliation for its losses in the western mountains of the country. The warning was taken seriously by the army and the security agencies.

    As many as 800 terrorist members have returned to Tunisia, and the vast majority of them are incarcerated around the country, revealed the Ministry of Interior. Around 3,000 Tunisians flew to the battlefields of Iraq, Libya, and Syria to join ISIS and al-Qaeda, revealed security sources.

    I think the same, about how they are selfish. They want their country fixed, but they seem to want no part of the actual doing. They protest, but do they take part and clean up the garbage? Do they at least try? Maybe a few do, but I don’t think most of them want to do anything. Then as soon as the place isn’t up to their new ‘western standards’, they try to leave.
    In Canada I see groups of people who volunteer their free time to go out and pick up garbage off of the sides of the highways. They do this for free, to keep their country clean. I’ve even done my turn at it.
    Perhaps Tunisia could do a few things to make their cities and villages nicer. It just takes effort, not money.
