Tunisian Islamist party pledges protection of Jewish community

Tunisia’s governing Ennahdha party has reached out to the country’s Jewish community.

The party’s list in Médenine held a meeting on the island of Djerba in the presence of a number of members of the community.

Ameur Laarayedh, head of the Islamist party’s local list, said the purpose of the meeting was to remind voters that all Tunisians of whatever religion were equal under the law.

“Tunisia is a civil democratic state with a Muslim Arab identity,” he said.
