Moroccans speak muslim? that doesn't even make sense. And Moroccans do NOT speak arabic. We speak Darija which is a mix of arabic, berber and french and is much closer related to berber than arabic. You don't go saying that Haitians speak french do you? You learn french in school if you live in Haiti just like you learn arabic if you live in Morocco. But arabic is NOT our language. If you knew ANY moroccan history you would understand that, ethnically, Morocco is NOT an Arab country. We are a Berber country ruled by an Arab-wannabe government.
