Jewess Runs for Parliament in Morocco

Positive news from Al-Masaa via MEMRI.

A Moroccan Jewish woman, Maggie Cacoun, is to head the women’s list of the Al-Wast Al-Aghtama’i party in the upcoming parliamentary elections in Morocco.

Cacoun, who defines herself as a “nationalist Moroccan,” said that she does not want her religion to be the main issue in her candidacy.

The party’s secretary-general said that Cacoun’s candidacy was “an opening for Jews as a fundamental element among the elements of the Moroccan identity.”

Another Jew, Joseph Levy, is currently the party’s deputy secretary-general.

I wonder how she will do in the election.

  1. I don’t see how that can be a problem. they have the right just like my neighbor next door. I know they will work Friday full day. that’s a plus as far as I’m concerned 😉

    I sincerely wish them a good luck
