Morocco is generally recognised as a country representing the acceptable face of ‘moderate’ Islam, but as Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan has stated, there is no moderate Islam, there is just Islam.
So it will only be the liberal apologists for Islam surprised by the story about a 16-year-old Moroccan girl named Amina Filali who committed suicide after she was forced to marry a man who had raped her.

I have had some interesting discussions with extreme left-wingers recently. And oh boy, what a dreadful lot of immoral, dangerous racists they are!
These online conversations are always initiated by the leftists, who promptly accuse me of racism, bigotry and Islamophobia. I reply that I am not driven by a dislike, or even hatred of foreigners, but that I love my country, its culture, its people and its inherent decency, all of which I see threatened by an ever growing number of immigrant people who share few of our moderate ideals.
This sparks off more accusations of racism, but I then ask the following question: “You tell me British Colonialism was wrong, yet you have no problem with Britain being colonised. This tells me it is not colonialism that bothers you, but the existence of traditional Britain. Is this the case?”
