Tunisia refuses to grant visas to Palestinian Arab bloggers

This week there is an Arab bloggers' conference in Tunisia.

But they are excluding the bloggers from one Arab "nation", as this tweet shows:

sami ben gharbia
Tunisian IM refused to give Palestinian bloggers visas to attend the 3 Arab bloggers meeting in Tunis for unknown reasons 
An Arabic tweeter confirmed, saying that Tunisia would not recognize bloggers using Palestinian Arab passports.

It seems that Jewish pro-Arab bloggers from Israel were denied as well, from this tweet from anti-Zionist Joseph Dana, which he has since deleted:

Isn't that interesting?
