How Tunisia became a target for terrorists

While Tunisia may not be as obvious a target as Libya or Egypt, jihadists have been attacking the country’s security forces consistently for years, albeit in less visible places than its luxury hotels. In the south, particularly in the Jebel Chaambi region, militants have waged a low-level war against police and military personnel. They have even assassinated two leading opposition politicians in the past two years.

    Look at a map. It’s even closer to Europe than Libya. Morocco is next. That’s why.

    • Islam can’t help but share the Luv!

      Morocco is exporting it’s people to Sweden where 95% of rapes in Sweden are now committed by Moroccan men. So they already are exporting a form of terrorism.

    Any Muslim country right now is a paradise of terror thats my opinion.

  • Any country, with a majority Muslim population, harbors countless jihadis within its population.

    All Islam’s, self-initiating, jihadi time bombs need, is a good Islamic reason. ISIS (and others) spewing of Islamic hatred provide incitement and encouragement.

    Sudden jihadi syndrome takes place and it’s Islamic virgin Bingo.

    A decade ago, columnist Georgie Ann Geyer wrote a book titled Tunisia: A Journey through a Country that Works, describing the efforts to modernize. A culture that would welcome such change would make the country a target for the allah gangsters.
