Should you feel offended?

…when someone calls you “jew!” and you are not. I don’t, but in north African societies , where anti-Jewish feeling is quite strong (and for those who will argue that it started with Israel, please read the book of the Tunisian Jewish Albert Memmi on Tunisia of 1920’s, the Pillar of Salt), it can be interpreted as an insult.

A Tunisian MP who, following some progressive amendments, started to get harassed and threatened by a supposedly (insane) extremist, filed a complaint, and had the great idea to precise that he was also accusing her of “being Jewish”, which she found offensive of course. Mind you, this is coming from the progressive, the enemy of Islamists. Welcome to Tunisia, the country of total inconsistency.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
