Associative actors, intellectuals and Moroccan artists of Muslim and Jewish confessions gathered, Sunday in Casablanca, around a “Tea of the Friendship”, a symbol of the unity, the living together and of communion having distinguished the links between the two monotheistic religions in the Kingdom.

“As activists, young artists and cultural actors, we looked out for gestures to mark the symbiosis that exists between Moroccans of both faiths, Muslim and Jewish,” said, on this occasion, Ahmed Ghayet, president of the association “Marocains Pluriels” in a statement to the MAP.

“The international context is sad,” said Ghayet, saying “the rejection of the other is threatening”, judging by the events that are happening today, with “desecrated graves, men and women stigmatized because they are Jews, Muslims, Christians … “.

In this context “we have sought to show that in Morocco, living together exists,” he said, stressing the need to preserve this “great tradition” and to make it fruitful for future generations.

During this evening, letters were exchanged and artistic acts were performed to express the mutual respect between the two religions.
