Tunisia to Enshrine in Their New Constitution a Ban on "Normalisation With The Zionist State" (Israel)

Pressure should be brought to bear on Tunisia to prevent this from being enacted considering the support we have given them and the support they will likely want/need in the future. (via)

"Today Tunisia's commission of political reform announced that it adopted (by majority) a ''republican pact'' that will be the basis of the future new Constitution, and in particular it states the rejection of any normalisation with Israel.

While announcing the pact the president of the commission, Yadh Ben Achour, did not offer any details, but the Arab speaking Tunisian press published its content, which defines Tunisia as a free and democratic country, whose official language is Arab and whose religion is Islam.

The pact, that will serve as the basis of the future Constitution, categorically rejects ''any form of normalisation with the Zionist State'', and supports the Palestinian cause.(ANSAmed).

Jim Hoft points out that The Obama Administration gave $20 million to support Tunisian democracy last month. It looks like this was not money well spent.
