Terror in Paradise – Holidays under gunfire

A film by Eberhard Rühle

 

38 dead on the beach in Sousse, Tunisia. A terror attack aboard a Russian holiday flight in Egypt, many victims of the attacks in Istanbul: terrorists are targeting tourists.

It is all part of a treacherous strategy with multiple goals – the death of citizens of the detested States of the West, who governments they have declared their enemy. The weakening of the economies of the holiday destinations Egypt, Tunisia and Turkey against whose governments they are fighting, and whose populations are more easily radicalised in times of instability.

In Turkey every 12th job is directly or indirectly linked to tourism, in Tunisia it is every 7th, in Egypt every 8th.
