This regarding your article “Activist Standoff Focuses on Morocco” appeared on Jan 20 in you paper
This our view
we were hoping that you did some search and look for the other side view ..
we feel sorry for these two innocent people i hope their parents put some sense into them before too late .
Even though they had intention to harm the Moroccan Integrity of its territory they still be allowed in and travel from North to south with no question asked they could do that in any other country ..this tell how Morocco is democratic and stable fair country …even when they were stopped in region where their lives might be at risk the Moroccan authorities provide them with taxi to go back where its more safe . Because they were heading to region of Tindouf where Al-Qaida Maghreb , Polizario, and other Terrorist groups and Drug smuggler in Sahel rules .
This new tactic for these terrorist organization to recruit new young western people to cause more in name of Human Right .harm as happened Now in Paris or few years ago in Algeria ( Blow up of gas plant in south Algeria by Young Canadian this young was recruited in name of Human right after her turned to terrorist )
i will be happy to meet with you to discuss this subject more and will be happy to meet their family to apologize of any mistreatment of these two innocent naïf young people.
Morocco is one country from North to Mauritania been that and will be always. None can dispute that even . and Moroccan in Lower Main land are most peaceful and respectable community .
