What Will Happen if Moroccans Take to the Streets?
This Moroccan voice speculates on a revolution that is coming his way- not 'if' but 'when': " it is unlikely the monarchy will be challenged when the revolution comes."
He goes on to postulate on the the fall-out of such a revolution and confidently puts the spotlight, not on the monarchy but "It’s the government that will fall if the revolution comes to Morocco". Again the revolution is like a plague or fast-spreading contagion that hangs over the region; 'if the revolution comes to Morocco' . Or a visitor.
"Protests in Morocco, however, will not lead to the removal of the monarchy for several reasons."
In brief, the monarchy is not to blame for the social maladies Moroccans have been suffering from for too long.

Says that chocolate mint-lover: I have a theory, that Egyptians have been conditioned to be afraid. Very afraid. Not just for the last 30 years but ever since Abdul Nasser became the president. This is why everyone has been silent for so long.
