User Reviews

I am from Sfax and this is absolutely nonsense
25 January 2015 | by haythemrSee all my reviews

I am writing this review without watching the episode. This is absolutely outrageous. Tunisia is a democratic country we are not extremist or terrorist and we live in the 21 century we all wear jeans and shirts. This is ridiculous showing terrorists with Afghani clothes we are moderate country open minded and ind ti tourists and strangers of all kinds. And specially in Sfax which is the industrial capital of Tunisia where most of the factories and business are. Please next time do a little research and try to be a little bit faithful to the truth and don't paste the terrorist label on every country but yours. Offending for an entire nation. shame on You
