This will teach us to let the ambassadors of all countries, particularly those who believe they can do anything, wander as they please in the country and crisscross it up and down, without even taking consent. This is what left the German ambassador to dare to insult and provoke the Tunisians, specifically since he dared this affront during an official ceremony, and in the presence of the Minister of Education.
Indeed, this ambassador dared to defend Israelis and portray them as victims of Hamas terrorists, even though this subject had nothing to do with his address. And this, during the inauguration ceremony of a school in Mohammadia, the construction of which was partly funded by the German development bank.
So, under the pretext of the two cents that a bank in his country advanced for the construction of a school, this ambassador thought he was permitted to give lessons to the Tunisians and provoke them in one of the causes which are most important to their heart.
This is what, moreover, leads to what extent Saïed is right, in rejecting Western alms so as not to lose our sovereignty. Because, let’s imagine what the donors could have done in such circumstances if they had released their billions, when for nothing at all, one of their numbers took this affront.
For his part, the minister, Mohamed Ali Boughdiri, did not let the incident occur like this, and he reminded this ambassador who was guilty of the killings against the Jews, the concentration camps and the holocaust. He consequently reminded him that if the Jews are victims of anyone, it is the Germans.
Now, we should, all the same, set an example, to avoid the recurrence of such affronts and such provocations, and Nabil Ammar should hasten to convene this indelicate ambassador and call him to order and put him back in place.
