TS Update-(Spring Information Meter)

Greetings Expats,

I remember the feeling of anxiety that dominated me during the days leading up to the Tunisian Revolution.  Most of the stress was a result of feeling in the dark and a lack of information   At times, I felt like a pilot without any navigation equipment…and that’s why I started the Tunisia Security Update Blog.

Since that day, I’ve been blessed with a steady stream of good information from security professionals, seasoned expats, and knowledgable locals.  Thanks to this network I not only feel empowered but I’ve also made it a personal mission to empower and share as much practical and relevant security information with the Expat Community.

OK…let me stop before I get too excited.

Thanks to this network I can sense when things are “picking up” and I have to admit that underneath the surface; a lot is going on.

Security professionals that monitor Tunisia are concerned.  Jamie Dettmer of Fox News put forth an insightful article:

“Prime Minster Larayedh has pledged to end political turmil by adopting quickly a new constitution and cracking down on Salafist violence.  BUT–>debate over a new governing charter for Tunisia risks enflaming disputes between secularists and hard -line Islamists and it isn’t clear that Larayedh has the stomach for a confrontation with Salafists.”

Additionally, the phrase I keep hearing from different contacts is:  “underneath the surface the water is boiling.”  I know what you’re thinking: What does that mean?  

Well here are the top 4 developments that are making the water boil:

Of course not all is bad, but as Germany’s Foreign Minster stated:  “It is obvious-the more stable, reliable and democratic the development of the country, the easier it will be for European and German investments to come to Tunisia.”

As always thanks for the emails & support…let’s keep networking.

  1. I seldom write remarks, but i did a few searching and wound up here TS Update-(Spring Information Meter) |
    Tunisia Security Update. And I actually do have a couple of questions for you
    if it’s allright. Could it be just me or does it look as if like some of these remarks look like they are written by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing on other online social sites, I’d like
    to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.

    Would you make a list of the complete urls of your communal pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed,
    or linkedin profile?
