Point of no return: Will it be 1952 all over again for Tunisian Jews?

"The so-called Jasmine revolution in Tunisia recalls earlier upheavals in the country's history. The year 1952 saw a fierce power struggle between the French colonial government and the nationalists, led by Habib Bourguiba of the Neo-Destour party, who four years later became independent Tunisia's first president and 'father of the nation'.

based on half an article in Noar, a Jewish newspaper of the time. It demonstrates clearly how the Jews found themselves squeezed between competing interests."
