Tunisia: Ties With Israel Serve Palestinian Cause

Subzeroblue has an intresting piece up on an article he came across in the online english version of the Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth about Turkish and Tunisian ties with Israel. The afore-mentoined article quotes another one published by the Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper about an interview with Tunisian and Turkish Prime Ministers who indicated that their countries' ties with Israel serve the Palestinian cause and are aimed at finding a solution to the conflict.

The Tunisian Prime Minister said during a press conference
that diplomatic relations between his country and Israel also serve the Palestinians. Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has been invited to the international science summit, to take place in Tunisia in November. Ghanoushe said that the participation of Israel in the summit would not have been possible without the active support of the Arab world, and that the summit would benefit all who were involved.

He added that
there was no direct conflict between Tunisia and Israel, and that his country was fully ready to recognize Israel and normalize ties, but added that this would “only happen when the Palestinian people receive their rights.”

hannibal,

Just a quick clarification, the event to which Mr Shalom (of Tunisian origins) was invited is the World Summit on the Information Society (http://www.smsitunis2005.org/plateforme/home.htm).
