Agadir – You, Moroccans who were being watched on the screens asking and begging for help while the floods were surrounding your homes and kids. Nobody answered your shouts.
You, Moroccans who were helpless, and who were waiting for a never-coming helicopter to throw a rope of hope to take you away from the floods and ruins, you are but Moroccans. You are not that worthy.
I wonder what you were saying to each other at that time when your vehicle fell into the water. You left this life with your secrets. Yet we are sure you felt so much disappointment at the way you were abandoned facing that horrible death. It was not the case for the non-Moroccan.
Sorry, you are Moroccan. Were you otherwise, all the logistics would immediately be provided. Helicopters would be sent, doctors would be brought, and even soldiers would be called immediately for your rescue, for your well-being and comfort.
You, who have drowned into the angry floods, are just poor Moroccans. Who would care about you? You were just villagers from the unknown useless parts of Morocco. You were not from the rich neighborhoods where the buildings are beautiful, the streets clean, and no floods can reach, where these days was held a world forum on human rights. Were you human?
You Moroccan man and woman were too decent to claim to be of any different blood to save your life, to save your existence. You left with dignity.
May Allah grant you all peace and mercy.
