    That is so sad. They have no pride.
    Your country needs more people like you.

    But they are too lazy to follow this example because they are taught not look after themselves.

    They need to be taught to clean up after themselves.
    If they throw garbage around here, they will be fined, and they will be frowned upon. Some people will even tell them to pick up the garbage on the spot. The environment and cleanliness are taken seriously here.
    And they wonder why our countries don’t want them. They have to resort to marriage fraud just to get a visa to visit.
    I bet that the few Tunisians that can get visas on their own are clean and tidy people. Not discusting slobs. Nobody wants a dirty slob.

    They are never thought to tidy up. I remember being about 4 years old that I wasn’t allowed to take another jigsaw before I put the other one away. And in school we had programs any keeping the environment tidy. And at high school we got punished if we didn’t clean up after ourselves in the canteen.
    In Tunisia they are way behind with their education. This goes for personal hygiene as well but that is another topic.

    Well, soon they will bury themselves in their own trash. If that’s how they want to live, then it will consume them. Real rats in the streets, stray animals everywhere, they will be over run by disease and garbage. The streets will smell worse than they do.
    They are killing their own country, by their own choice. It’s disgusting. I can’t imagine living that way by choice.

    Tunisia holiday warning: Terrorists strike as nation struggles to contain militants
    TUNISIA has been shaken by a fresh episode of violence by the hands of terrorists, when two jihadists blew themselves up in the city of Jilma, renewing concerns among holidaymakers about the safety of the country.
    By ALICE SCARSI
    14:36, Thu, Jan 3, 2019 | UPDATED: 14:56, Thu, Jan 3, 2019


    The two terrorists were exchanging fire with security forces who stormed their hideout and encircled them when they detonated their bombs this morning, the interior ministry said. The vile act took place 156 miles south of the country’s capital, Tunis. One of the casualties has been identified as Ezzedine Alaoui, leader of the Brigade of Jihad and Unity, a splinter group of Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, Soufien Sliti, a spokesman for the counter-terrorism agency said.

    RELATED ARTICLES
    Alaoui was also the mastermind of a terrorist plot aiming to take control of the province of Sidi Bouzid, 129 miles south of Tunis.

    Tunisia has been struggling against militant groups operating near the border of Algeria since 2011, when citizens raised against autocratic leader Zine Abidine Ben Ali.

    The uprising and the terror attacks which later plagued the country turned what once was one of Britain’s favourite holiday destinations in north Africa into an unsafe zone.

    Counter-terrorism forces estimated about 3,000 Tunisians have joined ISIS and other jihadist groups in Irac, Syria and Libya in the past nine years.

    Britain’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advises against any kind of journey in the southern part of Tunisia and asks holidaymakers to check constantly its travel advice before deciding to head to the country.

    The FCO’s travel advice page on Tunisia reads: “A state of emergency is in effect in Tunisia, imposed after a suicide attack on a police bus on 24 November 2015.

    “It’s been extended a number of times, most recently on November 5 2018 by one month.

    “Since the terrorist attack in Sousse in June 2015, which targeted tourists, the UK government has been working closely with the Tunisian authorities to investigate the attack and the wider threat from terrorist groups.

    At this point Mango. If people still vacation here, then I hope their will is updated, life insurance paid and they tell their families they love them. This is ridiculous that people would fly to an ISIS ridden country cus the vacation is cheap. At what cost to your life? This country is becoming unstable by the minute and I dont know how much longer my empathy can go. They've been warned many times.

    Sounds like Tunisia is in danger of becoming a failed state.

    Declaration of state of emergency throughout country from January 6 to February 4, 2019 (Presidency of the Republic)
    04/01/2019 19:25, TUNIS/Tunisia
    [​IMG]
    (TAP)- President Béji Caïd Essebsi, has decided to declare a state of emergency for one month throughout the country, from 6 January to 4 February 2019.



    This measure comes after consultation with the Prime Minister and the Speaker of the House of People’s Representatives (HPR), pending the adoption by the HPR of the draft law on the organisation of the state of emergency, a statement of the Presidency of the Republic said on Friday.



    The Head of State had decided to extend the state of emergency for one month throughout the country, from 7 December last year to 5 January 2019.



    A state of emergency has been declared since 24 November 2015, following the terrorist attack on a presidential guard bus and extended several times.



    On Friday 23 November 2018, Béji Caïd Essebsi chaired a cabinet meeting at the Carthage Palace, during which the draft law on the organisation of the state of emergency was examined.



    The cabinet meeting had decided to examine this draft law in depth, particularly as regards guarantees and judicial control, before submitting it to the cabinet meeting again as soon as possible.

    Why don’t they just keep it indefinite? This one month at a time thing is dumb.

    I do agree. Before the last one, they did it for seven months....made much more sense with the jihadist problems and the elections this year, as there are always violent clashes.
    This is a big election year, it's not just for a new government, but for a new president too....I think Essebi is in his nineties now....so I imagine the protests will be worse :thumbsup:

    I see that the Dutch government is giving a little bit different advise. The holiday companies are starting to fly again from this year. Last year there was only 1 company flying to Endfidha and Djerba and off course Tunisair kept flying from Amsterdam.
    There is no news about the terrorist attacks in the papers or on tv so many people think it is safe again to go on holiday.

    Enough people will go where it is cheap, ignore the warnings then cry when they get stuck in the middle of an uprising or war.
    A lot of people go through life with their head in the sand. They don’t check or look for information. Some say things like: ‘They wouldn’t advertise the holiday if it wasn’t safe’ and have that kind of attitude. One would think that just learning about the big terror attack a few years ago would have taught these people to be more self aware. But I doubt it. It’s not their fault so why worry? It frustrates me to no end.

    There is a risk of terrorist attacks throughout Tunisia, including on tourists and in tourist areas.

    Local laws, rules and customs

    The Tunisian authorities are very strict against the possession and use of drugs. Beware of young Tunisians who try to seduce you.
    Point out for travel

    Proper preparation of your trip can prevent many problems.
