I know   (04.01.19)
Under the Galabia ( Jlabia in Darija) he wears a $6000 Dormeuil suit. I know because that is what his father used to do. The galabia was there just to keep with the tradition that the majority of Moroccans forgone

Jake   (04.01.19)
on how "well" they treat their Jews...replete with the predictable "admission" by local Jewish leaders that they "feel protected" by their government.

Morocco never was in any war with any of its neighbours for hundreds of years.
Why to live in Middle East in constant wars and stress, when you can live in a beautiful big country like MOROCCO !!!
6. Visiting Morocco
Sjoerd van der Velde ,   Hoorn Holland   (03.31.19)
The pope better can visit Israel, instead of an "islam" country, as Morocco.
7. Pope is like everybody else: "say one thing, do another,
(04.01.19)
think third"...

11. MOROCCO IS AN ENEMY STATE.NO FRIEND OF JEWS OR ISRAEL
OLEG ,   FLORIDA   (04.04.19)
MOROCCO CLAIMS FRIENDSHIP TO ISRAEL WHERE IS THEIR CONSULATE IN ISRAEL. IT IS A FAKE RELATIONSHIP. NO REASON TO VISIT THERE AFTER 99.5% OF JEWS GONE. REMEMBER MOROCCO SEND TROOPS TO SYRIA IN 1973 TO FIGHT ISRAEL.
12. Morrocco
Ex Oleh Chadash   (04.06.19)
I saw two Moroccan guys in Tel Aviv when I last visited the country.

One said to the other:

- "Man, I f*ck@# your sister yesterday".

The second one gave him a kick in the face; and the first one also kicked him back - then, they both laughed.

Israel receives only high-level educated immigrants, as everyone knows.

Baruch Ha-Shem I left this third world country (Isroel) forever.
13. MAYBE IDENTITFY WITH THE BERLINERS THE NEW ISRAEL.
DACON9 ,   NEW JERSEY   (04.05.19)
"I identify myself as Moroccan first, then Jewish," the mother of three said
YOU SHOULD WORRY THAT THE HEAVENS WILL CONSIDER YOU ALSO MORROCAN FIRST AND NOT JEWISH. MORROCO IS KNOWN TO BE THE MOST LIBERAL. YOURE ANOTHER BERLINER. DONKEY
14. Why the hate about this story?
(04.13.19)
Seriously, I don‘t understand the hate of some comments here.

_Even if this might be propaganda_ - what is the hurt here?
Be happy for some peace, and carry on.

Morocco is not Israel, and things are different everywhere.
If there is something good to learn about this, then take your notes, and do your own thing.
