Anti-Jewish Demo Raises Fears for Tunisian Jews

Tunisian Jews have raised concerns for their community’s safety following an anti-Jewish rally outside the country’s main synagogue. Jewish leader Roger Bismuth met this week with interim Prime Minister Mohammed Ghanoucci and requested better security.

Dozens of Islamists demonstrated outside the synagogue last Friday and shouted, “Jews wait, the army of Mohammed is coming back,” and “We’ll redo the battle of Khaybar” – a reference to the slaughter of Jews in what is now Saudi Arabia at the hands of Mohammed’s army.
