Rabat – Moroccan comedian Gad El Maleh has once again shown how close Morocco is to his heart no matter how many years has spent living in France and other countries.
The Casablanca native, who left Morocco when he was 15 years old, painted his profile picture with the Moroccan flag to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Green March.
The Moroccan Jew, who is a celebrated public figure in France, changed his profile on Saturday, the day after the Green March anniversary.
As soon as his picture was posted on his Facebook page, it was shared by over 3,700 people and it garnered over 121,000 likes and several thousand comments.
Most comments thanked the Moroccan French comedian for not forgetting his native country and for showing support for its territorial integrity.
Although he left Morocco at an early age, El Maleh always seizes every opportunity to show how proud he is of being Moroccan. He has made a habit of mixing French and Moroccan Arabic in his one-man stand-up comedy shows.
The Moroccan people celebrated on Friday the 40th anniversary of the Green March, a peaceful march of 350,000 people to support Morocco regaining its lost sovereignty over the Sahara, dubbed in the West and by media the “Western Sahara.”
