Materi, who feeds chickens to his tiger. Pasha eats four live chickens a day. (Africa ...)
Obama seems to be preparing a coup.
On 24 December 2010, an important Washington think tank (Institute for Policy Studiesa) had an article about a possible change of regime in Tunisia (Foreign Policy In Focus.):
"It would do Tunisians, even (Tunisian President) Ben Ali, well to recall how many US allies different American administrations have discarded…
"The list is long and I will only mention a few: the Diem regime in the 1960s, Noriega of Panama... Marcos of the Philippines...
"Did the (US) ambassador 'decide' that Sakhi Materi 'should' replace his uncle Ben Ali…"
Sakhr El Materi, chairman of the Tunisia-US Parliamentary Friendship Group, is a top businessman and politician. (this page)
In October 2010, Materi had talks with top Americans in the Pentagon and the State Department.
In July 2009 the US ambassador visited Materi's home (Tunisia: Dinner With Sakher El Materi - TuniLeaks)
"The Ambassador raised economic liberalization, noting the importance of opening up to franchising. El Materi agreed, noting that he would be pleased to assist McDonald’s to enter Tunisia, suggesting they begin at the new cruise port in La Goulette."
The CIA may think Materi is too controversial a figure to be Tunisia's leader?
According to a certain blogger (Tunisia's Udau Hussein - Instablogs):
Materi "feigns piousness, but is a phony (I once saw him going out to party with two girls and a friend; his wife wasn’t there; and he was driving a Bentley).
"How did he afford such a car? Using his new connections to acquire state funds and companies.
"He recently bought a +$1 million home in Montreal. The home operates as a gateway house in case Ben Ali dies and a new political order takes place that would rightfully prosecute him and the Trabelsis and the Ben Alis for their theft."

On 31 December 2010, we read that "A Tunisian protester has died of his injuries after police shot him in the town of Menzel Bouzaiene...
"Mohamed Ammari, a Tunisian teenager, had been killed by police bullets the same day..." (Another Tunisian protester dies)
When the CIA decides to topple a president, it uses its assets within that president's police and military.
In the run up to the CIA's toppling of Indonesia's President Suharto in 1998, certain members of the military shot and killed some important students.
The objective was to undermine Suharto. (STAGED BY SPOOKS.)
Suharto, perhaps like Tunisia's Ben Ali, was seen as getting too old, seen as not giving enough contracts to the USA, and seen as not being sufficiently subservient to Washington and Tel Aviv.
President Ben Ali, who is to be toppled by the CIA and Mossad? A few weeks ago, BEN ALI REITERATED HIS SOLIDARITY WITH THE PALESTINIANS. In 2000, Ben Ali decided to break all diplomatic ties with Israel. Wikileaks, the voice of the CIA and Mossad, tells us that the Ben Ali family is a "Quasi Mafia"s
Is the CIA planning a coup in Tunisia?
Tunisia is one of the most prosperous of Arab countries, and one of the best educated.
Tunisia has been successful at creating an industrial-base; for example, it has an Airbus plant, a textile industry and the manufacture of car parts.
Perhaps the CIA and Mossad would prefer a more backward Tunisia, run by the CIA's Moslem Brotherhood.
On 30 December 2010, we read that Police have opened fire as protests spread in Tunisia
People are said to be unhappy about relatively high levels of unemployment among youth and about the government of the aging President, Ben Ali.
Tunisia is a success story compared to its neighbours.
Demonstrations have been reported in Kairouan, Sousse, and elsewhere.
In Kairouan, police clashed with demonstrators, leaving a number of people injured.
In Tunis, lawyers demonstrated 'in support of the protesters'.
The CIA and Mossad appear, through Wikileaks, to have expressed their wish to topple Tunisia's president, Ben Ali.
Wikileaks published a US government cable which described Tunisia as a 'police state', and, not sufficiently friendly to the USA.
Tunisia's tourism industry is said to be suffering from stiff competition from Israel. (LOL)
So, we have people power demonstrations, perhaps organised by friends of the CIA?
Expect to be told by the mainstream media that Ben Ali is horribly corrupt and has to go.

Reportedly, the CIA runs a secret prison near Bizerte, 65km north of Tunis, in Tunisia. (CIA facility in Tunisia?)
Back in 2002, Mossad and its friends took an interest in Djerba, in Tunisia, where Jews, Muslims and Christians normally live in harmony.
In 2002, in Tunisia, the Djerba bombing took place.
According to the official version, Nizar Nauar (Nawar), a native of Tunisia, drove a fuel tanker up to a synagogue.
The fuel tanker then exploded.
Nizar may have been a patsy. Nizar's brother, Walid, was jailed for 12 years for 'having supplied Nizar with false papers and a satellite telephone'.
Of course, no Jews were killed.
The bombing caused no real damage to the synagogue or its holy books.
Perez Trabelsi, head of Djerba’s large Jewish community, had left the synagogue for coffee just before the blast.
The people who died were 14 German tourists, five Tunisians and two French nationals.
The bombing was blamed on al-Qaeda, which is believed to be part of the CIA.
In 2003, Christian Ganczarski, who prosecutors believe had links to al-Qaeda, was arrested in connection with the bombing.
He has now been given a long prison sentence by a Paris court for his alleged part in the bombing. (Two jailed over Tunisia bombing)
Is Christian a double agent or a patsy?
Christian was born in Poland to devout Catholic parents. He moved to Germany. Reportedly he became "one of bin Laden's personal couriers."
The alleged financier of the Djerba bombing is a Spanish Catholic called Enrique Cerda Ibanez.
The Djerba bombing was on 11 April 2002.
The New York attack was on 11 September 2001.
The Madrid bombings were on 11 March 2004.
The number 11 is seen by some numerologists to signify "Israel."
Israel has attacked Tunisia in the past.
In 1985, Israel bombed the PLO headquarters in Tunis. - Mossad
In 1988 a small fleet of Israeli Sa'ar 4 Fast Missile Boats arrived in the waters just off the coast of Tunis. The Palestinian Abu Jihad, Arafat's deputy, living in the exclusive Sidi Bou Said suburb of Tunis, was then murdered byIsraeli special forces. - Tunis Raid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Djerba's chief rabbi, Haiem Maddar, has said that Jews in Djerba have more in common with their fellow Tunisians than they do with the Europeans, Russians and Americans who control Israel today.
Before 1948, Jews and Arabs coexisted together for centuries in Palestine. Now everyone in the world helps fuel the conflict so they can sell weapons to both sides, the rabbi complained. -(Tunisian Jews Enjoy Religious Tolerance and Peace in Djerba)
