Tunisia- The Qatar behind the envoy of 3500 tunisia jihadist in Syria. According to an article that appeared in Youth Africa and basing ourselves on a report of the UN, the tunisian combatants in Syria would be numbered at 3500 and would constitute 40% of the jihadist effective.
Even the handicapped have been enrolled as well as young women. According to some, many young females from Tunisia have been indoctrinated to lead ‘the jihad of Nikah’ meaning to satisfy the sexual desires of the fighters.
Most of the families of the young “recruits” demand the intervention of the tunisian government. the new executive chief Ali Laarayeh has responded that it is difficult to control the free movement of people. an instruction on the recruitement networks has been openen nonetheless. the question has become thorny and surpasses the national cadre; the business of death implies a logistic and a minute preperation going from establishment of false passport to achievement.
on this last plan, the article from youth africa indicates that the candidates to jihad are recruited by “humanitarian” associations financed by Qatar.
Defining bravery may not be as easy as I once thought it was. Typically, I felt it was someone who did something they felt needed doing and which they were very afraid to do, because of very real and likely consequences for the act.
Many people define bravery as simply placing yourselves in harms way. Granted there is a great deal of overlap there, but the person who has no fear of heights whatsoever such as certain amber-indians famous for working on New York Skyscrapers in the 1940s and 50s cannot be said to be brave necessarily, (at least in this sense) while a soldier who goes out into the battlefield knowing that he may not survive the encounter, and being profoundly frightened to do so is perhaps the dictionary definition of bravery.
How would you define then, women who not only are unarmed, but are out numbered and unclothed and paint upon themselves slogans demanding freedom and genuine human rights and place themselves in the middle of the most conservative, ultra-right wing misogynistic and thuggish group of people known to exist these days short of North Korea, and do this for the benefit of all of us.
Brave doesn’t cut it. We need a new word.

Tunisian FEMEN activist Meriam burned a salafist flag in front of the Grande Mosquée de Paris today at 4PM as a symbol of women’s fight against wild religious extremism. The Arab sextremist gave a sign of women’s stand-off to those who kill and rape in the name of Allah. The recent call of Tunisian salafists to stone Tunisian activist Amina was the last step before a big women riot.
As bright as the fire of the salafist flag that was burning, the Women’s revolution against wild traditions of Islamism will start. Women of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Bahrain, EMENA, Afghanistan, Turkey, Pakistan and Indonesia, you will change the planet with your courage! The one who was oppressed will become free, the one who was weak will become strong. Our bodies belong to us only! Islamism is strong in front of the oppressed but islamism is weak in front of the rebellion of our free bodies! Our breasts are more dangerous then their stones!

A Ukrainian women’s rights group is calling for a ‘topless revolution’ in Tunisia after a Muslim preacher demanded a girl who posted naked pictures of herself online be stoned because she is an ‘epidemic’.
FEMEN, which regularly stages high-profile naked protests, is declaring April 4 the day of ‘relentless topless jihad against Islamism’ in a bid to jump-start a new Arab Spring for women’s rights.
Amina Tyler, 19, caused outrage in her native Tunisia last week when she posted topless photos of herself on her Facebook page.
The naked truth: Amina Tyler, 19, caused outrage in her native Tunisia last week when she posted topless photos of herself on her Facebook page…
Thanks to everyone who sent this in, Oz-Rita etc.
A Tunisian Salafi preacher has called for a 19-year old girl who posted her topless pictures on Facebook to be “quarantined” and stoned to death before she starts “an epidemic.”
Tunisian newspaper AssabahNews quoted Salafi preacher Alami Adel, who heads the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, saying: “According to God’s law, she deserves 80 to 100 lashes, but what she committed is worth much more than that. She deserves to be stoned to death and she must be quarantined because what she did is an epidemic.”
“She is like someone suffering from a serious and contagious illness and she must be secluded and treated,” he added.
The young Amina, who is part of a feminist movement and group called FEMEN can be seen smoking a cigarette topless with Arabic words written across her chest in black that reads in English “My body belongs to me.”
Below, the actual picture that has the muslims so upset.
SHAKING AGAINST SHARIA!
And the guys join in.
In Europe they would be hauled in for defamation of an ethnic minority, with the Islamic fundamentalists cheering and chucking stones. It shows just how far we’ve fallen. These are the people worth supporting, not the Islamic fundamentalists who always manage to claw their way to the top. Lead the way girls! ‘
NOTE: They are doing this in spite of Islam, not from principles stemming from it.

These music videos that the Tunisians are posting are a genuine act of defiance and courage against a rapidly forming totalitarian regime. These kids, like most of the Egyptian protesters, are likely ‘cultural Muslims’ and not political or desirous of sharia. These are the ones we should be supporting.
Dozens of Tunisian Salafists fail to stop a ‘Harlem Shake’ dance at a school in the El Khadra neighborhood, as students shouted ‘Get out, get out’
Salafist Muslims tried to prevent the filming of current Internet craze the “Harlem Shake” at a Tunis school on Wednesday, but were driven off after coming to blows with students, an AFP correspondent said.
When the dozen or so ultra-conservative Muslims, some of them women in veils, showed up at the Bourguiba Language Institute in the El Khadra neighbourhood, a Salafist bastion, students shouted “Get out, get out!”
One of the Salafists, wearing military gear and carrying a Molotov cocktail he never used, shouted “Our brothers in Palestine are being killed by Israelis, and you are dancing.”
The Islamists eventually withdrew, and the students were able to film their production.
On Monday, Education Minister Abdellatif Abid said a probe had been ordered into a staging two days earlier of a “Harlem Shake” by students in a Tunis suburb.

Tunisian authorities have ordered a probe into the staging of a “Harlem Shake” show in a Tunis suburb by students who dance wildly and imitate sexual acts, after a video recording went viral on the Internet.
“The ministry of education has demanded an investigation and the department will take appropriate measures,” Education Minister Abdellatif Abid said on private Radio Mosaique.
He said there could be possible “expulsions” of students or “sacking” of educational staff who were behind the staging of the dance.
Tunis (Reuters) – Thousands of Tunisians protested on Saturday against the new prime minister-designate Ali Larayedh, a hardliner from the main Islamist Ennahda party.
President Moncef Marzouki asked Larayedh to form a government on Friday, in the aftermath of the February 6 assassination of secular opposition politician Chokri Belaid.
Outgoing prime minister Hamadi Jebali resigned on Tuesday because Ennahda rejected his plan for an apolitical technocrat cabinet to prepare for elections.
Larayedh, the new premier-designate, is controversial because opposition secularists accuse the Interior Ministry which he headed of failing to curb Islamist violence.

(Reuters) – Tunisia’s prime minister-designate Ali Larayedh, a hardliner from the main Islamist Ennahda party, said on Friday he hoped to form a “government of all Tunisians”, but opposition leaders swiftly signaled discontent.
Tunisia plunged into political crisis on February 6 when the assassination of secular opposition politician Chokri Belaid on February 6 ignited the biggest street protests since the overthrow of strongman Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali two years ago.
President Moncef Marzouki asked Larayedh to draw up a government within two weeks after he was formally nominated for prime minister by Ennahda leader Rached Ghannouchi.
As there is no description given, judging by the appearance of people, the signs, the dress and general look, I would have to say that this is either a new donut shop opening in Toronto, or police anticipating an attack on the French embassy in Tunis.
