TUNISIA: ATI Refuses to Enforce Court Order to Ban Porn Sites – What Are Their Real Porn Profits Anyway??

EDITORIAL: You know these internet providers are making a pretty fat profit when they all fight so hard to be able to continue to peddle their smut and scams to the World. They don’t want the responsibility for policing their communities (because it’s really them doing all the crimes) and they  make billions off of YOU. The courts in Tunisia have said ATI must ban all porn sites. ATI says parents can filter. When governments and corporations cannot filter and protect their systems, we cannot expect parents to be able to. Stop trying to make parents shoulder the responsibility to protect their children when no one can filter effectively at this level. It’s impossible, in fact.. To protect children in our current social environment would entail locking them in a room with no access to the outside for their entire childhood. Otherwise, it’s in their faces 24/7 because no one is enforcing the laws that protect them from obscenity. IT’S EVERYWHERE!!

We have to take a stand against these providers unfettered access to the children and senior citizens whom they exploit and scam regularly. Of course these same internet providers scream censorship. Of course they try to instill fear against anyone policing their criminal actions. They are criminals who want free reign as they’ve been having for years. COMMITTING CRIMES AGAINST WOMEN AND CHILDREN IS NOT PROTECTED BY ANY LAW IN ANY COUNTRY!!

Tunisia, you took a stand for the protection of your citizens. Stand strong with your convictions. Evil will always try to steer you in the wrong direction. It’s up to our leaders to take back our childrens innocence and our womens dignity. God Bless You in your quest for a better life AND solid family values!!

Tunisia’s highest court will rule Wednesday on a complaint over access to pornographic websites, in a decision which experts warn could herald the return of pre-revolution censorship practices.
 
Tunisian courts have already ordered the country’s internet agency (ATI) twice to censor porn sites, after complaints by three lawyers who say that such content is “against Muslim values” and dangerous for the young.
 
Observers believe that the appeal court will uphold the previous rulings, thereby forcing the ATI to begin filtering websites again, even though the practice had been dropped after the ousting of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.
 
The ATI itself has spoken out against such censorship.
 
“It’s a step backwards,” said the ATI’s chief executive Moez ChakChouk, who has been trying to change his agency’s image after he was appointed following the revolution.
 
“Under Ben Ali, the ATI was an instrument of political control and censorship. Today we are fighting for the neutrality of the Internet, but they want to put the old cloak back on us,” he complained.
 
Citing practical reasons, the chief executive noted that filtering would compromise the quality and speed of data transfers, and that his agency did not have sufficient funds to carry out such censorship anyway.
 
Experts warned the court decision would have far-reaching implications.
 
“It is about whether we want to delegate the power to choose to the state, rather than to citizens,” media sociologist Riadh Ferjan said.
 
“We are not in uncharted territory in this area. Tunisia has a loaded past. It was one of the most restrictive countries. It also served as a laboratory for Internet surveillance,” he added.
 
Regulation of the internet can be done via other tools, including parental control software, education or even self-regulation, he said.
 
“But the debate is being conducted in an erroneous fashion. We are talking about ideology, driven by passion, and not facts. We put morals everywhere,” he said.
 
But one of the plaintiffs, Monaem Turki, said that “morals and law can go together.”
 
“In France, Hitler apologist websites are censored. Likewise, in Tunisia, there should also be prohibitions and pornographic sites are not tolerable,” said the lawyer.
