Greece may be in financial turmoil but tourists have showed their continued preference to the country overlooking the negative attention that has been attracted. Tunisia suffered the worst terrorist attack in recent history; Egypt hoped for modest growth this year but the Sinai plane crash reversed that.
As it celebrates the fifth anniversary of January 14, Tunisia is asking itself, not who will come to its rescue, but when its destiny will be fulfilled, for the sake of peace in the Mediterranean and the world.
As the flames ignited from the dusty town of Sidi Bouzid in central Tunisia spread from one Arab country to another, it seemed as if Arabs had finally emerged out of the long dark tunnel where they had been forced to dwell for decades.
TUNIS, Tunisia -- Exactly five years after the Arab Spring, Tunisia's revolutionary achievements have disappeared. Once considered the country that resisted the chaos that took over most of the MENA region after 2011, it seems to be sliding back into its pre-revolutionary situation.

Michael Moore is known as a documentary filmmaker, and there's no doubt his films strike a populist chord, the result being enormous grosses for a limited audience art form.

The beginning shots of French artist JR's haunting new short film Ellis feel a lot like a scene out of Shutter Island. But then the voice of the wondrous Robert De Niro comes on, and the story becomes about immigration, and our humanity.
I met Mohamed in Palermo, Italy. Mohamed, 31 year old, is an illegal immigrant from Tunisia. He gently accepted to answer to my questions in a small bar at Ballaro market.
Most of us think that we could never be like the Dalai Lama or come even close to winning a Nobel Peace Prize. Well, let's be honest -- we're probabl...
As France mourns, and as Americans are drawn more and more into the struggle against ISIS, the Obama Administration and its European allies have to turn the tables on Arab states before ISIS strikes again against us.
The aim of this piece is to dissuade the reader (and, who knows, maybe some of the media?) from reducing Tunisian artists to the role of trouble makers or indicators of the political climate.
In a time of entrenched conflicts and historically low oil prices, the challenges for policymakers throughout the region are steep. But that only makes finding the political will to move forward with the right reforms all the more important.
