Moroccan Jew Seeks To Join Islamist Party

A Moroccan Jewish lawyer has asked to join ruling Islamist party.

Isaac Charia of Rabat sent an open letter to the Islamist Justice and Development Party requesting to join the party, Morocco World News reported.

In the letter, Charia asks whether the party will welcome Moroccan Jews or if it is only for Muslims. He also writes that “the honest citizen who wants to participate in the political life of the country has no other alternative” than the party. He said he wants to fight corruption and encourage reforms through the party,

Charia has called for political parties in Morocco to stop mixing politics and religion.
