Kaïs Saïed: Normalization with Israel high treason

Days of Palestine -

Tunisian presidential candidate Kaïs Saïed in a televised debate described normalizing relations with the Israeli occupation as "high treason".

Saïed said that he is against normalization with Israel, stressing that those who collaborate with an occupation that displaced an entire people must be condemned for high treason.

When asked about whether visits will be allowed to synagogues in Tunisia, he clarified that Jews with no Israeli passports are welcome.

On Friday, Tunisians began voting abroad in the second round of presidential elections which will be held on Sunday, 13 October, in Tunisia with two contenders: Kaïs Saïed and Nabil Karoui.
