    Exodus prohibited and permitted in Morocco


    Morocco has banned and allowed American movie Exodus, the reasons for the ban according to Moroccan authorities, the film distorts historical facts ,shows the characters that should not be shown, this film shows God that's a large forbidden subject in the Muslim world.
    But during Ramadan , almost three years ago a Lebanese TV channel Almanar ,with Iranian religious channel has broadcast religious series showing the Jewish prophet Joseph to viewers in the Arab world, nobody in the Arab world has protested against this, but the Iranian series has had a great success in the Arab world, and I do not think a Jewish citizen in Israel protested against the Iranian series.
    Prohibiting the film Exodus shows a regression of the Moroccan authorities which paradoxically have given their prior agreement through the CCM ‘ Moroccan Cinematographic Centre’, but the political and religious authorities have a different opinion confirming censorship for security reasons ,alleging terrorist pretexts relating to Daish ISIS ,and the fact that the film distorts historical facts, but most troubling in all this ,is that ,god was represented by some American movies but these movies have not been banned in Morocco, double standards!!!!.
    But eventually the Exodus movie is now allowed in Moroccan cinemas after the CCM had agreed with the film makers to cut scenes that show God speaking to Moise. This ban will instead play for the movie by making it more attractive than before and more popular, that's the benefits of thoughtless and hasty censorship.

    Google indésirable en Europe !!


    Google est le plus grand moteur de recherche dans le monde , il n'y a personne sur la planète qui ne sait pas cette grande entreprise de haute technologie !! , mais en Europe Google est sur la sellette en raison de monopole selon l' Europe, parce que Google a le contrôle désormais 90% des recherches sur Internet en Europe , et le Parlement européen veut changer cela .
    Certains membres du Congrès aux Etats-Unis ont déclaré que la menace d'imposer des restrictions à Google est politiquement motivé , alors que pour le Parlement européen et les Européens ont dit qu'ils n’ont pas de problèmes avec Google , à l'opposé Google a changé la vie de nombreux Européens , les européens disent qu’en Europe nous n’avons pas la même législation comme aux états unis , aux Etats-Unis Google a une position dominante sur le marché , mais cela n’empêche pas Yahoo par exemple avec son moteur de recherche Bing d'avoir environ 20% de marché américain du moteur de recherche , en Europe, il n'y a pas de moteur de recherche capable de rivaliser avec Google .
    La Commission européenne vient avec beaucoup de règlements pour faire face au monopole imposé par Google , mais les membres du Congrès aux Etats-Unis souhaitent que ce processus ne soit pas politisé , car selon les Américains l'Europe n’intervient pas pour protéger la concurrence loyale , mais pour aider les entreprises européennes à être en mesure de prendre leur part du marché , même s’ils ne le méritent pas , et même si les européens n’ont pas un produit assez fort pour rivaliser avec les entreprises américaines , mais les Européens répliquent en disant que Google lui-même accorde un traitement préférentiel et ce n’est pas bon pour les consommateurs , la concurrence et la création d'emplois en Europe , l'intervention de l’Europe n’a rien à voir avec la politisation de l'affaire disent les européens .
    Les Européens demandent à la Commission européenne de faire quelque chose pour l’Europe pour sauver les entreprises européennes et l'emploi , alors que pour Google et ses représentants ,ils disent nos services sont des services gratuits , et les Européens pourraient visiter d'autres sites s’ils le veulent .
    au cours des quatre dernières années Google est venu avec quatre remèdes à propos de monopole , mais après les tests effectués par la Commission européenne, il a été remarqué que le monopole de Google s’agrandit .
    Maintenant la Commission européenne a deux possibilités , la première est de demander à Google de présenter ses quatre séries de mesures correctives pour éliminer le monopole , ou Google doit payer de lourdes amendes avec le risque d'être divisé en Europe , ces deux possibilités sont dans la table de la commission européenne qui peut les utiliser au cas où.

    Google could be fragmented in Europe


    Google is the biggest search engine in the world, there is no one in the planet who does not know this huge high-tech company!! ,but in Europe Google is in the hot seat due to monopoly according to Europe ,because Google is controlling now 90% of internet research in Europe ,and European parliament wants to change that .
    Some congressmen in USA said the threat to impose restrictions in Google is politically motivated ,as for the European parliament ,it is wondering on whether to break this company ,Europeans said they do not have any problems with Google ,at the opposite Google it changes the life of many Europeans for better ,but in Europe we do not have the same legislation like USA ,in USA Google has a dominant position in the market ,but that does not hinder Yahoo for example with it search engine Bing to have about 20% of American market of search engine ;in Europe there is no search engine able to compete with Google .
    European commission come up with many rules to deal with the monopoly imposed by Google ,but congressmen in USA want this process not to be politicized ,because according to Americans Europe is intervening not to protect fair competition ,but to help European companies to be able to take their share of the market even if they do not deserve it ,and even though European do not have a product strong enough to vie with American companies ,but Europeans retaliate by saying Google gives itself preferential treatment and that it is not good for the consumers ,competition and job creation in Europe ,Europe intervention has nothing to do with politicizing the affair .
    Europeans ask European commission to do something to save European companies and job, as for Google , its representatives are saying our services are free services ,and Europeans could visit other sites if they want ; during the last four years Google has come up with four sets of remedies to ease European fair about monopoly ,but after tests made by European commission it has been noticed that Google monopoly is not only still here but getting bigger .
    Now European commission has two possibilities ,the first one is to ask Google to present its four sets of remedies to eliminate monopoly ,or Google must pay heavy fines with the risk of been unbundled ,these two possibilities are in the table of European commission which can be used in case .

    Oil price is going down


    Oil price is dwindling since this summer due to many factors ,that is good for the consumer but bad for some producers like Russia Algeria Iran Venezuela ….etc ,some golf officials said if USA and Russia want high price they must be part of the solution ;the price must be attractive for that level of investment in the sector to continue .
    with USA shale production we have a big chess game ,Russia joined Venezuela and Mexico to meet Saudi Arabia oil minister to plan a reduction of oil production from OPEC members by one million barrel a day ,but golf countries said non-OPEC producers must cut first before asking golf countries to join the move ,as you see it is difficult to reach a consensus in this scabrous affair ,Russia is saying it is ready to reduce its production although it is not an OPEC member in order to raise oil price ,Russia finance minister said dwindling oil price is costing Russia 100 billion dollars a year .
    It seems everyone is worried about oil price but no one is ready to take a decisive action ,as you know among five huge oil producer (USA ,Saudi Arabia, china ,Russia ,Canada) ,there is only one OPEC country ,if for example Saudi Arabia cuts production the main beneficiaries will be USA Russia ….etc .
    It is very difficult to reach an agreement ,as some OPEC members cheat on their quotas ,some countries could content themselves with an oil price of 60 dollars as long as the dollar is strong ,and the market is oversupplied ,as for the consumers throughout the world they will applaud oil price bellow 70 dollars.

    The economy in Europe and Russia is in bad shape


    Russia was recently demonized by western media and politicians about Ukrainian crisis, knowing in advance there is now alternative of equal cooperation and mutual respect between Russia and western countries especially European countries,the fact of limiting and downgrading the level of cooperation between Russia and Europe ,without doubt has a multilevel consequences which are not confined to economic and financial fields but go beyond that .
    Many politicians in Europe say there is no room for hope and optimism in the standoff between Russia and Ukraine as long as the cease-fire agreement signed between the two parties in September is not respected.
    The economic growth in many European countries is less than expected especially in Germany ,this year and during the next year ,Russia is also in dire financial straits due to low oil price but also to western sanctions which harm both Russia and Europe ,as for USA is far away from the financial consequences of this conflict .
    The follow-the herd-attitude adopted by Europe has heavy fallout on European economy, many Europeans questioned the point of following blindly USA policy in Ukraine without weighing the pros and the cons of this policy on European interests in the short and long run.

    Ebola hinders morocco from hosting football Africa cup 2015


    Ebola hinders morocco from hosting football Africa cup 2015
    AFC(African football confederation )CAF (confederation africain de football) had decided 11 November 2014 to withdraw the organization of African football cup 2015 from morocco ,due to categorical refusal of morocco to host this great African football event in the fixed date between 17 January to 7 February 2015.
    Morocco had refused to host Africa cup in this date chosen by CAF, morocco had chosen another date either June 2015 ,or January 2016,due to the risk of Ebola contamination which claimed many innocent lives, about 5000 people killed ,and 13 000 contaminated especially in western Africa (Liberia, Sierra Leone ,Guinea ).
    Morocco is afraid of losing the flux of tourists coming from Europe ,in case of one Ebola case manifested in the country during this African sport event ,since tourism in morocco accounts for 8% of Moroccan GDP , it generates 6 billion Euros a year ,and 500 000 jobs especially in Marrakesh ,Agadir ,Casablanca ,fez …..etc .
    Footballwise morocco had won Africa football cup once in 1976 hosted by Ethiopia, and hosted this football event in 1988 won by Cameron.
    Sanctionwise ,morocco will not take part in 2015 Africa cup ,and very likely will not take part in 2017 2019 Africa cup ,besides heavy fines which Moroccan football federation must pay for its steadfast refusal to host this event in the date fixed by CAF.
