cause of two main factors:
one is President Habib
Bourguiba's extended ill-
ness which keeps him out of
Tunisia and prevents him
from running the country as
he has done since Tunisia's
independence.

Bourguiba, 76, is con-
sidered by the local Jews
as their "special protec-
tor" and the man they
trust. Bourguiba's
chances of recovery,
from. what doctors de-
scribe as a very serious
disease, look slim.

Jewish anxiety has been
further increased by the
plan to move the Arab
League headquarters from
Cairo to Tunis. Local Jews
as well as Tunisian resi-
dents in France fear that
such a move might give a
strong anti-Israel and
anti-Jewish turn to
Tunisia's political direction.
