HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, NOVEMBER 11, 2011 Election From page 2A Islam, or we will burn and destroy all their interests across the entire Islamic world," Ghannouchi said at the time. Ghannouchi hewed to the typical Muslim Brother- hood stance on Israel: He backed Hamas and fervently wished for Israel's disap- pearance. "I think that the approach of Palestinian Islamists must be the liberation of Palestine from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea," Ghannouchi said. "Any part that is liberated is a gain, provided the price is not the sale of the rest of Palestine. Palestine be- longs to the Muslims and must be liberated in its entirety." Kramer also cited a state- ment by Ghannouchi that the Oslo Accords between Israel and the Palestine Lib- eration Organization were part of"a Jewish-American plan encompassing the entire region which would cleanse it of all resistance and open it to Jewish eco- nomic and cultural activity, culminating in complete Jewish hegemony from Marrakesh to Kazakhstan." In his article, Rubin expressed doubt that Ghan- nouchi had changed. He also predicted that Ennah- da's success, together with reports of Islamist gains in Egypt and Libya--two other nations that shucked off secular dictators--por- tends decades of unrest. "We've been handed 30- 50 years (that's the op- timistic assessment) of bloodshed, oppression, social stagnation, war, ter- rorism, and anti-Western hatred," Rubin wrote. "We must now devise a strategy to deal with this situation and survive it." That sort of outlook is a surrender to despair, according to Joel Rubin, director of government af- fairs for the Ploughshares Fund, which funds projects aimed at advancing peace and ending conflicts. "Tunisia is a society that is going to trend to moderation," he said, not- ing pledges by Ennahda to protect minorities and the status of Tunisian women-- among the most advanced in the Arab world. "One can't wish Islamism away, so one should see what it's going to look like." Joel Rubin, who has vis- ited Tunisia multiple times, was cautious about extrapo- lating a larger message for the region from a relatively small country that has maintained close ties with the West, and where the leadership has inculcated a secular outlook in its elites. "We have to view it as an independent variable and assess it and see if it creates lessons," he said. Tunisia was unique, Isaacson acknowledged, but should it succeed in incorporating Islamism into a democratic polity, its example could prove transformative. "If people are true to their words and Tunisia is true to its condition, it will be a testament to an Arab democracy where secular and religious forces coex- ist," he said. One positive sign was the care the major Tunisian political parties--including Ennahda--took to reassure the 1,500-member Jewish community that its protected status would not be affected. Nicholson From page 3A helped transform with UCF President John Hitt in 1994. According to Nicholson, "What was once 'six quonset huts' is now a multi-story facility of higher learning, competitive with major universities throughout the country. The Nicholsons also sponsored the Nichol- son Field House. the first indoor football practice facility built for a Division I program in Florida. Nich- olson, a former high school football player, appreciated the impact both higher education and athletics had in his personal development and felt these contributions could positively impact other young people. He grew up in Chicago, where he was inspired by the sacrifices his mother made on his behalf after his father left the family when Tony was a toddler. He was also influenced by the late Rabbi Louis Binstock of Temple Sholom in Chicago. "Rabbi Binstock was beloved and revered by the community," says Nicholson, "even as a young boy growing up in the city, I knew he was someone to look up to .... To this day I try to uphold his Times From page 4A Palestinian prisoners, none of whom surely would have wished to trade their diet, access to the outside world and, indeed, to sunlight, or opportunities for education with what Shalit endured. And it might have con- trasted the moods following the swap. Israel warmly welcomed home its son's return, while engaging in a sobering de- bate about the meaning of it all and what might loom ahead. Meanwhile, in the West Bank and Gaza, there were no expressions of remorse for the Israeli blood spilled by the freed terrorists in pizzerias, lynchings, disco- theques, and Passover sed- ers. To the contrary, there were frenzied calls for the kidnapping of more Gilad Shalits, while Palestinian Authority President Mah- moud Abbas, not wanting examples of giving back to the community." After graduating from Tulane University in 1960, where he was class presi- dent all four years, Nich- olson landed a job selling advertising for the Chicago Tribune. Always looking for advancement, he replied to one of his own adver- tisements and soon found himself a junior executive and lease negotiator with McDonald's, where he had an opportunity to work with legendary founder Ray Kroc. As a young manager, Nicholson was held to a tight budget. Never afraid of hard work, he picked up two part-time jobs to support himself and his mother, who was now under his care. When Kroc refused a raise request, Nicholson set out on his own, and his own ventures in real estate flourished. In 1966, Nicholson moved into commercial real estate and mortgage financing. He relocated to the Orlando area following acquisition, in a swap with one of his mortgage holders, of a 13-acre parcel in Central Florida. He had flown down to Florida, where it was whispered that Walt Disney was also investing in Orlando area real estate. After spending time in Central Florida, Nicholson accepted the deal, and a year later, so did Disney. Nich- olson's land increased in value almost immediately, and he began to develop the first of many projects in real estate, selling thousands of homes and condominium units throughout the years. By 1994, Nicholson Homes was one of the largest build- ers in Florida. Ever the visionary, Nich- olson invested in telecom- munications with Phone One (one of *the first to compete with AT&T), and in the microfilm industry. He purchased a percentage of the Orlando Predators Arena Football Team, which appealed to his combined love of football and busi- ness. His family has always been central to his vision. Wife Sonja's name ac- companies his own in his philanthropic endeavors. He has close relationships with their adult children and young grandchildren as well. Six-year-old grandson Rob affectionately refers to Tony as, "Papa," enjoy- to be outdone by Hamas, lauded the arrivals: "You are freedom fighters and holy warriors for the sake of God and the homeland." But as usual, Abbas got a pass in the editorial. Ul- timately, he never seems to be responsible for anything. Praising terrorists? A fiery speech at the U.N. in September, where he denied the Jewish people's ancestral connection to the region, while citing the Muslim and Christian link? Avoiding bilateral talks? Setting preconditions for negotiations, while refusing Israel's right to do the same? A reconciliation agreement with Hamas? PA spokesmen who continue to call for Is- rael's eventual destruction and a judenrein West Bank? All of that seems to count for little, since, we're told, it's Netanyahu's fault anyway. Then there was one final reason for infuriation. With Muammar A1-Gad- dafi's demise the following Thursday, I was reminded again of just how shocked I was on January 21, 2009, when I opened my daily edi- tion of The Times to see an op- ed, entitled "The One-State Solution," by, of all people, the Libyan leader. Surprise of surprises, he called for an end to Israel and, addressing a topic to which he brought such great expertise, the creation of one big, happy family in Israel's place. Having some idea of how difficult it is to get published on that page, I couldn't quite grasp why the paper would give this tyrant prime real estate to spout off his ir- relevant, absurd views on such an issue. All I can say is, to better times! David Harris is executive director of the American Jew- ish Committee.

Tony Nicholson leases a box at the UCF-Brighthouse Arena for the family, where his "home team" can gather, explain- ing that, "An afternoon of family and football makes a perfect day." At 73, Tony Nicholson is still full of ideas. On Nov. 13, he is scheduled to help produce an exhibition game at the UCF-Bright- house Arena, which will be hosted by Dwight Howard. Players such as Shaquille O'Neal may also participate. Throughout the interview, he was busy fielding calls about game logistics--ev- erything from seating for NBAparticipants to parking issues.

But they also were willing to give him a chance. "There is this awareness, let's trust in this system of democracy, that we have had these historic elec- tions, there is a government that will try to represent all people in Tunisia," she said of the Tunisian Jews. Neither Isaacson nor Shabi foresaw any op- position by the new gov- ernment to the deep ties between the local Jewish community and the tens of thousands of dispersed Jews of Tunisian origin abroad, including in Israel. Thousands of Jews visit the Jewish community of the Tunisian island of Djerba and its ancient synagogue each year for Lag b'Omer, and a number of important sages are buried in Tunisia, attracting pilgrims. PAGE 19A A 2002 bombing on Djer- ba's synagogue that killed 21 people, the majority of them German tourists, was the work of al-Qaeda and is not seen as representing in- digenous hostility to Jews. In February of this year, shortly after the ouster of Tunisian dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, a group of Islamic extremists demon- strated outside the main Tunis synagogue :Shouting anti-Semitic slogans. But since then, things have been mostly quiet for Tu- nisia's Jewish community. "Nothing has occurred in recent months that has been threatening to the community," Isaacson said. Coupled with efforts by monarchs in Jordan and Morocco to accom- modate their own nascent democracy movements, a democratic Tunisia could trigger change throughout the region, Isaacson said. "The United States has to remain involved," he said. "We can't walk away from this one." Classifieds HOUSE CLEANING HANDYMAN SERVICE LOOKING for someone to clean your house?
