A good article, but not enough to counter the ugly images we see daily on TV of people rioting and burning embassies. The daily scenes of very poor people burning flags and attacking embassy has made me think. Yes, believe or not it made me think. I thought of how many kilos of rice, kilos of fham (charcoal), and of how many tents the money could buy for the Pakistani people who have been devestated by the earthquake.
What money you ask? The money awarded by the Pakistani imam to whomever kills the cartoonist(s). Did he specify if the killer must be a muslim or not? Just a passing thought that I should entertain another time. I thought of how many school books, pens and pencils the money can buy. I thought of how many, dresses, pants, shirts, socks and shoes the very needy children of Pakistan could buy. I even compared the prices of Chineese product versus indian and Korean. When my head started to hurt I decided to abondon my overly noble mental work and try to focus on the immediate need of those rioters who have been deeply offended by the cartoon. I decided to see how many of them I can send to the hammam for a much needed washing. How many I can send to barbers for shaving. I even thought of including a new chlaka to replace the ones they have lost during the rioting. If you are a Tunisian you will very well know that chlakas (slippers) don't survive demonstrating on unpaved roads. So, $1,000,000 = 59690002.44 PKR. If it cost twenty Ruppees per person for the whole package (hammam, barber and chlaka), I would accomodate 2,984,500 persons. Wow! a lot of happy people. Don't they say that you can see noor (light) on the faces of true believers. I believe my package will help reflect the inner noor of the rioters. Furthermore, by spending the one million dollars this way I, also, revives two businesses that have been in decline since the fundamentalists have gotten stronger and more intimidating.
Humbly, humming my favorite song "laou kan be eddaya amr elkoun."

تونس: كارثة الإيقاف التحفظي

الإيقاف التحفظي والايداع بالسجن قبل إصدار الحكم يجب ان يكون الاستثناء وليس القاعدة. هذا الإجراء المعمم بالمحاكم التونسية هو سبب اكتظاظ السجون(50%من السجناء هم مواطنين موقوفين ولا يوجد حكم ضدهم) وثابت علميا انه يؤثر على مجرى العدالة
بشكل كبير ويؤثر سلبا على الأحكام فنادرا ما يحكم الموقوف بالبراءة او بمدة اقصر من التي قضاها تحفظيا . هذه الممارسات تسبب كوارث اجتماعية واقتصادية و تجعل المواطن يحقد على المنظومة القضائية و يحس بالظلم و القهر

Abolir le visa schengen pour les tunisiens.

Je me joins a adib, tarek et les autres pour exprimer ma forte reprobation de la politique de visa et de restriction que l'Europe a instauré vis a vis des tunisiens.

je pense, et ce pour plusieurs raisons, que l'Europe gagnerai plus a faciliter l'acces des tunisiens a son territoire.(je parle dans ce post uniquement des tunisiens et non de tous les pays du sud puisque la Tunisie exige un visa pour ces pays et puisque je concois que pour chaque pays ya un contexte different.. donc une balance risque/benefice differente)

- primo si tout les tunisiens ( comme les libanais d'ailleurs) ne sont pas tres nombreux et meme s'ils decidaient tous d'emigrer en Europe ils seraient facilement dissous dans la population generale.

- secondo, culturellement la Tunisie a toujours été baigné dans la culture de la mediterrannée du sud et je trouve absoument incroyable que des roumains, estoniens ou slovaques soient la bienvenue dans des pays comme la France, l'Italie ou l'es…
