Was this morning’s knife attack against scantily-clad females in France evidence of a trend among Moroccans?
I ask this question because of the juxtaposition of this story about a campaign against women who wear bikinis on Moroccan beaches. The ANSAmed article arrived in our inbox just after the report on the attack in the Maritime Alps:
Online Photo Campaign Against Moroccan Women in Bikinis
Covert photo operation criticises and threatens women
(ANSAmed) — RABAT, JULY 18 — Moroccan police have undertaken an investigation to determine those responsible for posting photos online of Moroccan women in bikinis on beaches throughout the country.
The photos were taken secretly and posted on a Facebook profile under the false name Aicha Amal, in a campaign calling on the women to turn to religion.
The group said it has taken 10,000 photos and has threatened to publish them all online.
In captions accompanying the photos it has already published, the group wrote: “rediscover the high road and turn to God”; “this is what happens in Morocco, land of Islam, principality of believers”; and “watch out, young Moroccan women, we have eyes that are filming you on the beaches and we will show your photos to prevent the deterioration of the country”.
The photos were taken on beaches in Rabat, Salé, Kenitra, Agadir and Casablanca.
