Tunisia's government condemned an Israeli government decision to offer extra financial assistance to Tunisian Jews wishing to immigrate to Israel. The approval of the new program amounts to interference in Tunisia's domestic affairs and "an attempt by Israel to tarnish the post-revolutionary image of Tunisia," Tunisia's Foreign Ministry said in a statement, the Associated Press reported. Under the plan approved at a Cabinet meeting Sunday, Tunisian immigrants will receive special financial assistance of more than $9,000 in addition to the usual aid provided to new immigrants.
