Tunisian Jews reject calls to leave

In the wake of the Arab Uprising, which began a year ago in Tunisia, an Israeli government minister said that for their own safety all of Tunisia's remaining Jews should move to Israel.

Hundreds of thousands of Sephardi Jews used to live across North Africa and the Middle East, before the creation of Israel in 1948.

But the suggestion that the small communities that remain should pack up and leave is being rejected, by many of the Jews themselves.
