The Morocco-France match for the 2022 World Cup semi-final in Qatar was the occasion for the French TV channel ‘France 5’ to broadcast, on December 12, a program entitled ‘France-Morocco: a semi-final full of history’.

One of the participants, Mariame Tighanime, a French-Moroccan human rights activist, railed against Morocco’s policies, including the monarchy and senior security officials.

The activist’s relentlessness against her home country prompted Loubna El Joud, professor of communication at Cadi Ayyad University in Marrakech and founder and president of the Independent League of Moroccan Professors, to write a critical manifesto, in which she traces the paradoxical journey of the supposed human rights activist Mariame Tighanimine.

A critical manifesto was written by activist Loubna EL Joud, in which she traces the paradoxical journey of the supposed human rights activist, Mariame Tighanimine, who fought against Moroccan politics, including the Monarchy and the high-security officials on the French program “C ce soir”:

While watching an episode of the French program “C ce soir”, before the Moroccan team played in the semi-final match with the French national team during the 2022 World Cup, Mariame Tighanimine has several criticised the politics of Morocco, including the monarchy and senior security officials.

Starting from the principle according to which the understanding of the other passes by the contextualisation of their positions, it is easy to note that the curious course of the lady, says a lot about the logic that she uses to feed her condescending, even contemptuous theories, towards her country of origin and towards her roots in a more global way.

Far from wanting to put Mrs Mariame Tighanimine on trial, there are nevertheless questions that require answers, which would hopefully shed some light on us and allow us to better benefit from her criticisms and recommendations.

Born in Morocco, and raised in Mantes-la-Jolie, she “decided” to wear the veil at the age of 11, “like her mother, her sisters, and the women around her”, she founded with her sister “Hijab & The city”, a blog for veiled women”, and “Umma TV” a program posted on the web, which aims to highlight the principles of Muslim and “coquette” women in 2008.

In 2017, she removes the veil, releases a book, which turns out to be “the story of a long process of emancipation which led her to abandon beliefs and systems of thought that had become obsolete in her eyes”.

The abandonment of her system of thought, which had become obsolete, allowed her to integrate a Master’s degree later, and to enroll in a Doctorate afterwards.

What the link? the bledares[1] that we are would wonder, living under the influence of a supposed Third World dictatorship!

Her response is as follows:

“I also wrote this manifesto to respond to an emergency; that of being able to abandon beliefs and ideas that limit us, prevent us from becoming rational, free humans who are able to face major contemporary problems. We are indeed living in a time when we are facing environmental, health, economic and social challenges of great magnitude. It is neither magic nor religion that will solve them, but science, education and political action.

Even today, I pay the price for the veil because I saw my eldest not find work because of it, and I made school choices based on this observation upstream, such as choosing a university where I knew that I would not be the only one veiled, or to end my studies at university earlier than planned, telling myself that in any case, I would not be wanted on the qualified labor market.

Scandalized the bledar that I am, will not be able to capture that higher education and access to the job market, in the France of freedom, equality and fraternity, depends on the abandonment of the veil, which according to Ms. Tighanimine, constitutes a real obstacle!!!

In all, what is more surprising is that the latter finds the necessary and sufficient audacity to tax the Moroccan system with dictatorship, whereas it should, and in my opinion, be even more proud of being Moroccan than to be French, because and according to the latest news, university studies and the Moroccan job market do not establish as a criterion of social ascent and scientific research, the fact of wearing the veil or not, which is considered a personal freedom!

I believe that the denial of the Muslim religion and origins, deemed “Obsolete”, because they do not rhyme with ambition and the desperate quest for recognition of a membership conditioned by identity assimilation, fit into a more global box, that of Soul-business.

Deals that respect each other, as long as they come under the order of the free will of each other, as to the use of their bodies, minds or feathers.

Nevertheless, it is essential to avoid standing on tiptoe to preach honesty, when you have lowered your pants!

Morocco is a country that embodies interculturality in all its splendour, Moroccans do not feel obliged to abandon their values in order to be better understood… Unlike others.

The lessons of democracy, of human rights, would be of more use to those who really need them, who suffer from difficulties in terms of social integration, who are dying to be adopted to the point of “dressing up”, in denying their identities, standing up against theirs… Sitting on a sofa, wearing a haughty air, because thinking they are now among the chosen ones…

Identity “bastardism” in a very pitiful scene.

In Morocco, we vote Madame.

In Morocco, the security services are so appreciated that they do not hide like moles!

citizen king

Citizen Police

Citizen Security Services

We rely on openness, sharing, and transparency, when others, oddly, prefer to hide, while a PUBLIC list announces them as official collaborators… Which is a bit funny anyway!

To conclude…

The “I feel even closer to the national team players because they are bi-national like me” will be more appropriate, if it was part of reciprocity, don’t you think, Madame? For my part, I don’t think that these Moroccan players, proud of their religion, give you the same feeling of rapprochement…

They are patriots

Attached and proud of their origins

They succeeded while being “different”. They brought the other to them and did not deny their religion, principles and values…

They asserted themselves

When others fade away

Received by Her Majesty

Expressing their attachment to the monarchy, their gratitude to their country…

Nothing binds them to those who seek to sow discord, to scum and sold.

Long live the king

Long live the PEOPLE

Strength and honour in MOROCCO

Strength and honour to the HOMELAND
