THE ARAB STREET TURNS OUT:

CASABLANCA, Morocco, May 25 — Tens of thousands of demonstrators chanting “no to terrorism” thronged the streets of Casablanca today, nine days after 43 people were killed in coordinated suicide attacks in the city.

“I am here for myself and for them, the next generation,” said Abdellatif Ghanam, an unemployed night watchman, gesturing to his 6-year-old son. “The people who did those attacks are not followers of Islam in its true sense.”

Interesting.
