    Dear friends, I am writing to tell you that I am extremely worried about what is going on in Tunisia. Tunisian law-makers, members of government, and policy-makers should let know that we are waching and we are feeling very concerned about what is going on. About what they are doing to their country’s young people by allowing widespread homophobia in their communities. Ahmed Ben Amor is truly an amazing young man, and i consider him to be a hero for our times! What an amazing fearless young man! Tunisia should wake up and realize how they treat their own youth!
    Not including LGBT people, and letting them discriminated against is holding countries back! It is truly holding them back in the Dark Ages of reason and thought. It IS very important that Tunisia and some other countries where widespread homophobia seems to be ok come to open their eyes, open their hearts and open their minds about the fact that this unacceptable situation in severely harming their own countries! These countries are not stronger countries because they have widespread homophobia, on the contrary, they lose a lot of creativity, they lose culture, they lose on economy, they lose people being happier and living a good life! Miserable people make a miserable economy! If Tunisia really, i mean really, wants to become a wealthier, stronger, better, happier community, then they must realize LGBT people ARE part of it! There is NO OTHER WAY! This is so obvious, i just don’t understand why this is going on in Tunisia!
    Can’t they just see someone like Ahmed Ben Amor is good for Human Rights, and that his influence is a good one? Ahmed Ben Amor is not taking anything, any right, away from the religious-minded! He is no terrorist, he won’t harm anyone! He just wants to be granted the same rights as everybody else! He is on the right side of History. What is Tunisia waiting for?
    I find what is going on in Tunisia right now extremely shocking. That is the kind of sad unacceptable news that make people realize Tunisia is no place for tourism. Why should people spend their money as tourists in a country that discriminates against LGBT people?
    Maybe Tunisia has to start facing its own problems, and deal with them now so that their young people, who are their future, won’t feel all they can do is to end their lives.

    Thank you.
