Execution of Moroccan Muslim Youth

King Hassan the Second released the Christians, Baha’is and Jewish prisoners who were accused of espionage for Israel, [in order] to attract the attention of the Zionists and to confirm his absolute sincerity and respect to them.

With the release of Zionists, and in bestowing freedom on non-Islamic groups in Morocco, King Hassan II started the arrests of the revolutionary Muslim youth. Each year, the Moroccan regime usually arrests and imprisons a group of young revolutionaries, on the charges of Islamic activism and sends them to trial and prison.
