good point blackspeare.. I add to that my experience in Morocco recently where I saw immigrants from China and India seeking life in Morocco. Perfect example you brought! If India is a corrupt demoscrotos, then Morocco -Muslim State or Islamic State as written in their constitution- is much better and more democratically efficient than India. A lot of freedom, progress -although slow- and openness. Never a Church, a Synagogue or a Mosque has been burned in Morocco...look at India!

In Morocco, I saw people -from the general public- who are Pro-Bin Laden (Very rare), against Bin Laden (Most people I approached), pro-nasrallah, pro-Israel, Pro-Iran, Pro-Saudi Arabia, Pro-USA..That is the real freedom of expression. In Morocco, I saw that people are free to think, to express also. But to do, it must be within the law..If you act or prepare to act against public welfare, you will be punished.

A little bit of honest help from Europe or USA, I believe Morocco is better qualified than Turkey to fit in the west with its Muslim heritage (Turkey vastly represents one faith and race while in Morocco you have Jews, Christians, atheists, Sunnis, Shias and in races you have Sussites, Chlhiltes, Rifites, Arabs, Phenicians, Romans, Vandals..) So why the West helps Sahrawi Separatist terror group that destablized this country? I hope one day the Western mistakes will not lead to lose a vital state like Morocco to the sphere of an unknown power..
