No Hashish for me Haji.

Well only in America is it ok to kill unborn babies but not Terrorists so I should be ok.

Haji?
Well then, did you kill some terrorists back there in terrorist land? How were the Moroccans to you? mean, xenophobic, not hospitable, just want to kill you because they are a bunch of "hajis", they stink because they are not Americans?

Hajji = an Arabic term of respect for someone who has made the pilgrimage to Mecca.

My apologies for the initial mispelling.

Yes I have killed several Terrorists but not in Morocco.

A lot of Morroccans do not have the same bathing customs that I do so yes, their odiferousness was noticed by my dainty American nostrils.

Nope not mean or Xenophobic. Especially when I greeted with my very poor Arabic and a hand accross my heart after shaking theirs.

Why so hostile my myopic friend?

Actually it's Hadj not hadji or hadjji, the latter two are derogatory terms by the way.
How does it feel to kill someone? Tell us!
Maybe if we cooperated with the Moroccans with REAL business deals they will be able to afford 24 hours water supply systems for bathing but I guess since they don't have oil they are only good for tourism, eh?
You're right, their greetings with the hand to the heart is sincere and warm. I hope you got invited for some authentic couscous, tagin and harirra

Well when I was there (Working not just tourism) they had 24 hour water in Casablanca. And by your post I can only assume that you think that they are some kind of backwards country. They aren't. They have Pizza Hut. The true metric of civilization.
