Rabat - It is a fact that Morocco is and has always been a true crossroad of ways of life, civilisations, and religions both geographically and culturally speaking. This has no doubt been instrumental in giving birth and nurturing in this country a tradition of tolerance and acceptance of the other in his “otherness” and difference, be it racial, linguistic or religious.
