Tunis Update : The King’s Men Are falling Down

First of all Tunisia in Arabic is Tunis , I know that I am not doing a good job here because actually I am stuck in to the TV between Al Jazeera , France 24 and surprisingly after very long time Al Arabiya !!
Second of all there are the latest updates in Tunis regarding former regime men :
Imad Al-Tarbelsi
  • Not less than 50 bodyguards of Ben Ali’s bodyguards have been arrested after one hell of fight between them and the Tunisian army at the borders between Tunisia and Libya.
  • Imad Al-Tarbelsi , the youngest brother of Laila Ben Ali , the former first lady was reportedly killed. “some say that he was beaten by slippers like our famous queen Shajar Al Durr !!” Here is a video for Imad speaking French , here is also his old Facebook profile !! Check out his last wall post in Arabic . He hated Wikileaks for sure and just like Gaddafi accused of igniting the matter !! Believe or not I found a mutual friend between us !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • The former minister of interior has been arrested in his home town in a convoy.
  • The head of the presidential security “ presidential guards” notorious Ali El-Seriati and he is currently facing charges of destabilizing the general security and safety in the country.
  • He fell after one hell of a fight where he took refugee with another general in some school.
  • France has reportedly frozen the bank accounts of Ben Ali.
  • Ben Ali’s daughter and her entourage left Europe Disney hotel and moved to unknown place.
  • Ben Ali is in Saudi Arabia thanks to the help of Prince Al Walid , we knew that he was welcomed in Saudi Arabia due to the help of some businessman , no businessman will help him in get asylum in the country especially after his position in the invasion of Kuwait except Al Walid. Surprisingly all of us forgot that Ben Ali was supporting Saddam in the Iraqi invasion to Kuwait in 1990 , no wonder the Kuwaiti people and government are so happy for his fall. I think there are enough reasons to boycott Al Walid companies now.
  • Ben Ali’s niece Kais Ben Ali was arrested in his attempt to flee the country.
  • The government is still having negotiations , now we can see the real cons of having weak puppet shadow opposition parties.
  • The people of Tunisia , the great people of Tunisia have started to restore back their ordinary life , they are not afraid of the Ben Ali’s remaining gang and decided to face them. People across the country have formed public committees to protect their areas and neighborhood.
  • The union du travil in Tunisia has called the citizens to starts working again from tomorrow.
  • You can follow online updates of Tunisia here.
  • A New head for the presidential security was appointed in Tunis from few hours ago.
  • There is a huge battle currently between the presidential security and the Tunisian army allegedly at the Presidential palace " I do not know if that fight at the Carthage presidential palace in the capital or not"
  • Speaking about the presidential palace "Carthage" , according to the official website of the Tunisian presidency Ben Ali is still the President of Tunisia

  • It seems that we are soon going to have the real Tunisian Wikileaks as the official documents incriminating the Ben Ali regime , here is document found at a state security HQ in some governorate where the security spies on the security officers themselves and their families. Reports were made about which security forces officers especially from used to pray regularly in the mosques and also their homes."can you believe the crime of praying in home or a mosque? " The wives , mothers and sisters of officers were also monitored so the state security would know who wears the veil or that sectarian dress !! "Veil is banned according to law despite in the past few years it was allowed some how as you have seen in the street" 


  1. @Z: dnt forget to update reuters news that among those apprehended by the Army were holders of European passports and Europeans esp from Germany, France and Sweden.

  2. Forgot to say shukran for posting the videos, its hard for anyone to believe there were protest in addition the bayt li sakinihi chaos. Still can't see this developing into something bigger tho.

    Libyans commenting on jazeera article going back 5 pages.

    Explained things better than twitter, or maybe I just can't navigate it. I wonder if Jazeera will show/has shown the videos, Dima Khatib has them I see. Maybe waiting to see if it fizzles out first.

  3. Al-Trablsi junior's facebook profiles tell us how he was so so so pious. He wrote Quranic verses and religious duaa's attributed to the Prophet Muhammad and posts links to Quranic recitations by Sheikh Ajamy. I hate those double-faced bastards.

    Comments on his last wall post debate about his being dead, with some people saying he is still alive, while other 'friends' of him are insulting him both in French and in Tunisian Aabic. More knives for the fallen ox.
