Simon Tisdall’s “Arab Street” in Action Outside a Synagogue in Tunis

H/T Atlas, Elder of Ziyon and Joshua Pundit.

In 1948 there were 120,000 Jews living in Tunisia. Today – after anti-Jewish government decrees were passed, synagogues destroyed, and Jews attacked and killed in the period following independence in the 50s and 60s – there are less than 1,000 remaining in a nation of over 10 million.

Yet even this minuscule remnant of that ancient community (which dates back to Roman Times) is too much for the recently emboldened Tunisian masses – what Simon Tisdall would no doubt wistfully refer to the as the authentic Arab Street – who recently saw fit to vent their frustration over one of the most repressive Arab regimes in the world by engaging in a hate fest outside one of the last remaining synagogues in Tunis.

Yes, the chant you hear in the video (Iqbal al Yahud!) means “Death to Jews.”
