Tunisians greet Haniyeh

This must be part of that Arab Spring we’ve been hearing so much about. The Elder of Ziyon site draws attention to the report posted at Point of No Return:

Cries of “Out with the Jews!” [and] “Kill the Jews!” greeted the arrival at Tunis airport of the Hamas chief in Gaza, Ismail Haniyeh. StandWithUS (France) reports:

A few hundred people gathered on 5 January at the Tunis-Carthage airport to welcome Haniyeh. As they waited for him they sang antisemitic chants and slogans to the glory of Palestine and the liberation of Gaza. They carried Palestinian flags, the flags of the Ennahda movement, and the black flags of the Salafists.

Ismail Haniyeh was arriving in Tunisia from Turkey for a two-day visit.

EoZ adds that the YouTube comments “include quite a few Tunisians who are deeply embarrassed about this.” For mote on the Turkey angle, please see Barry Rubin’s column ‘Why is an anti-American Islamist Obama’s favorite Middle East leader?”

Let’s go to the tape.
