    hi jillian!
    another hot topic in morocco, your good falowing the changes in morocco, you can change the map you show up here, you know that we are very sensetive to our territorial integrety.
    thank you

  • Jalal nali,

    Israelis are sensitive to their “territorial integrity” too – does that mean we should remove Palestine?

    Again, no.

  • Dreamer

    Palestinians want their “territorial integrity”, which means that “Isreal” should be removed, and not be at all.

    Back to track, which your comment Jillian, you state that you don’t believe in the Moroccan integrity?

  • I stated no such thing. I don’t agree with Morocco’s handling of the issue, and avoidance of a referendum, but without having been to Western Sahara and having seen it with my own eyes, I cannot make a decision on what is or is not right.

  • juan

    This map is the official map admited by UN, so it’s the right one.
