Who are Morocco's enemies?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The only country that has caused severe military problems for Morocco in recent memory is Algeria, who fought Morocco in the 1980-1982 Sand Wars and supports the militant Polisario Sahraoui Army which is an insurgency in Moroccan-occupied Western Sahara. Additionally, Spain and Morocco have a dispute over Spanish territories on the African mainland like Ceuta and Melilla as well as some Islands like the Isla Perejil that are very close to the Moroccan Coast.

Some would say that Morocco is an enemy of Israel, because it is an Arab country and does not recognized the Jewish State. This seems to be more pandering than actual enmity, though since the Moroccan leadership appears to be less Anti-Zionist than other Arab countries and nearly 500,000 Israelis are of Moroccan Ancestry. Morocco also was one of the main parties that coordinated Israeli-Egyptian peace negotiations.

What are people from Morocco called?

Asked by Wiki User

Moroccan(s) the berbers

History

The Berber community has lived in North Africa since ancient time. Several ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Roman records mention them. Berber groups are mentioned by the ancient Egyptians during the Pre-dynastic Period and during the New Kingdom. Some Egyptologists think that the Egyptians were ruled by Berbers, who founded the 22nd Dynasty. Over time, North Africa was hit by several invaders, such as: Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Ottomans, and the French. Most of them have influenced the Berber community.

Between 642 and 669, the Arabs sent their first military expeditions into the Maghrib, which resulted in the spread of Islam. The Umayyads dynasty recognized the strategic importance of controlling the Mediterranean. By 711, the Umayyad forces had invaded all of North Africa.
